Putin warns of global 'crisis' after U.S.-led strike on Syria

STEPANAKERT, APRIL 16, ARTSAKHPRESS:According to a statement, Putin and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani discussed the missile attack that targeted a science lab and two chemical weapons depots and agreed "that this illegitimate action has seriously damaged the prospects for a political settlement in Syria," the statement from the Kremlin said.

President Donald Trump ordered the military strike early Saturday in coordination with France and Britain. The White House intended the strike to deter Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from using chemical weapons after a suspected attack using sarin and chlorine gas killed dozens of people last week in the rebel stronghold of Douma, east of Damascus.
