Russia denounces Syria strike

Posted: Updated:

Russian President Vladimir Putin has denounced a strike on Syria launched by the United States and its allies as an "act of aggression" that will exacerbate humanitarian catastrophe in Syria.

In a statement issued by the Kremlin, the Russian leader said Moscow was calling an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council over the strike launched by the U.S, Britain and France.

Putin added that the strike had a "destructive influence on the entire system of international relations".

He also criticized the U.S. and its allies for launching the strike without waiting for inspectors from the International Chemical Weapons Watchdog to visit the area.
