The 15-member council met on Saturday, at Russia's request, the fifth time it has met on Syria since a suspected lethal poisonous gasoline assault within the Syrian city of Douma every week in the past.

The US says it did not coordinate with Russian Federation or notify the country of strikes Friday night on Syria, where Russian Federation has military bases and soldiers. "We can't just wish all that away".

"Why didn't you wait for the outcome of the investigation you called for?" Russian Federation and Syria have mentioned there was no proof of a chemical weapons assault.

The United States, France and Britain defended their military action as legal during the Security Council meeting.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley told the council "there is clear information demonstrating Assad's culpability".

"The United States of America will not allow the Assad regime to continue using chemical weapons".

Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the meeting confirmed that the USA and its allies "continue to put global politics and diplomacy in the realm of myth-making - myths invented in London, Paris and Washington".

"We're assured that we have now crippled Syria's chemical weapons program". It was unlikely to get the minimum nine votes needed to force a veto by the United States, France or Britain, said diplomats.

Ryabkov also said Russian Federation would study a U.N. resolution on Syria proposed by the United States, France and Britain, but added that it would be hard to reach a compromise on the issue, TASS reported.

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.
