Russian President Vladimir Putin has told Iranian President Hassan Rouhani that further attacks by Western allies in Syria would inevitably lead to chaos in international relations.

In a phone conversation on Sunday, the two leaders agreed that “this illegal action seriously damages the prospects for a political settlement in Syria,” Russian news agency RIA quoted the Kremlin press service as saying.

Putin and Rouhani were discussing the situation in Syria after the United States, France and Britain launched coordinated attacks on Syria’s alleged chemical facilities,

“Putin stressed that if such actions, committed in violation of the UN Charter, continue, it will inevitably lead to chaos in international relations,” RIA added.

On Saturday, US, French and British forces targeted three sites in Syria, which, according to US President Donald Trump, are associated with the chemical weapon capabilities of Bashar al-Assad, Syria’s president.

The coordinated attacks came as a response to the Syrian regime’s alleged use of chemical weapons in Douma last week, killing scores of civilians.

The US has warned it “is locked and loaded” to strike Syria if any more chemical attacks occur.
