Britain would consider launching a cyber attack against Russian Federation in retaliation if Russian Federation targeted British national infrastructure, the Sunday Times reported, citing unnamed security sources. Four countries abstained - Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Equatorial Guinea and Peru.

Maas listed a series of what he called problematic actions by Moscow, including the lack of progress in implementing a ceasefire in eastern Ukraine, a poison gas attack in Britain, Moscow's support of the Syrian government, Russia's efforts to influence Western elections, and the cyber attack. Russia vetoed a USA text, while two Russian-drafted resolutions failed to get a minimum nine votes to pass.

Following up on President Donald Trump's threat, the USA - along with allies Britain and France - rained cruise missiles at three locations in Syria on Saturday, the biggest strike by the West in the seven years of the war in Syria.

He has often attacked the special counsel investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election, and has repeatedly suggested the USA would benefit from improved relations with Russia. The Syrian government and its ally Russian Federation denied the allegations.

Worldwide investigators from the global chemical weapons watchdog are in Syria and were due to start their inquiry on Saturday into the suspected toxic gas attack.

"If the Syrian regime makes use of this poison gasoline once more, the U.S. is locked and loaded", Haley mentioned. "We're matching", he said. "If we continue on this path, we will soon reach the diplomacy of the absurd".


"I would like to believe that we will not see a day that is worse than today", he said.

"We're assured that we have now crippled Syria's chemical weapons program". A decision wants 9 votes in favor and no vetoes by Russia, China, France, Britain or the U.S. to go.

Russian Federation supports Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and has military personnel in Syria, creating a risk of armed confrontation between Washington and Moscow surrounding the country's long running civil war.

Nebenzia responded saying the environment is "not very conducive for any rapprochement" and "the political and risky military situation we are in now" must be sorted out first.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who briefed the council before the vote, stressed again "the need to avoid the situation from spiraling out of control" and for a political solution. Visit MarketWatch.com for more information on this news.
