"I knew they would seize on this but felt it is such a great Military term, it should be brought back". Speaking on French television BFM and online site Mediapart, Macron stressed that the French diplomacy is able to talk with Iran, Russia and Turkey on one side and to the United States on the other side.

Russian President Vladimir Putin called for a meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss what Moscow decried as an unjustified attack on a sovereign state.

Russian Federation had promised to respond to any attack on its ally and said on Saturday that Syrian air defenses had intercepted 71 of the 105 missiles fired.

Trump tweeted "Mission Accomplished" on Saturday after U.S., French and British warplanes and ships launched more than 100 missiles almost unopposed by Syrian air defenses.

"None of these military actions are large enough to deter chemical-weapons use when Assad thinks it's strongly in his advantage".

"The President must come to Congress and secure an Authorization for Use of Military Force by proposing a comprehensive strategy with clear objectives that keep our military safe and avoid collateral damage to innocent civilians", House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California, said in a statement Friday night.

While the chemical weapons attack has put Syria fully on Trump's radar, experts say it's unlikely to persuade him to stay the course in Syria beyond defeating Islamic State.

Said former White House press secretary Dana Perino in 2008: "We have certainly paid a price for not being more specific on that banner".

Syria's President Bashar Assad welcomed a group of Russian politicians to Damascus on Sunday, following airstrikes carried out by the US, Britain and France the previous day.

The strikes "successfully hit every target", White told reporters at the Pentagon. In a US military action a year ago in response to a sarin gas attack, missiles took out almost 20 percent of the Syrian air force, the Pentagon said.

The U.S. -led operation gained broad Western assist. The NATO alliance gave its full backing; NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said in Brussels that the attack was about ensuring that chemical weapons can not be used with impunity.

"There's nonetheless a residual ingredient of the Syrian program that's on the market", McKenzie mentioned, including, "I am not going to say they will be unable to proceed to conduct a chemical assault sooner or later". That did not mean military strikes would continue.

McKenzie admitted the strike did not wipe out all of the Syrian regime's chemical weapons capabilities. "It is not to get involved in the Syrian civil war", she added.

Several U.S. officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said it was not a priority for the administration to push out Assad, who has survived with massive aid from Iran and Russian Federation.

Asked about Trump's "Mission Accomplished" assertion, White said it pointed to the successful targeting of three Syrian chemical weapons sites.
