And The Russian Center for the Reconciliation of Opposing Sides in Syria reportedly examined Douma on Monday and found no traces of chemical weapons.

Moscow also said it was calling an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council, where it is a permanent member, to discuss the "aggressive actions" of the USA and its allies.

He did not elaborate or name the state.

The Russian minister warned that any "venture" in Syria that is similar to what happened in Iraq and Libya "will entail new waves of immigration to Europe and other repercussions that we and our European partners do not want".

Mr Lavrov said: "God forbid anything adventurous will be done in Syria following the Libyan and Iraqi experience".

In a press conference on Friday, the foreign minister warned that ultimatums and threats do not help the dialogue.

On Monday, US President Donald Trump threatened to take military action against Syrian authorities over the suspected use of chemical agents in the city.

On Friday night, the US, France and the United Kingdom launched coordinated strikes in Syria as President Donald Trump sought to "punish" his Syrian counterpart Bashar al-Assad for a suspected chemical attack in Douma, Eastern Ghouta, that killed over 70 people.

Syria and its ally Russia have denied such an attack took place, and Moscow has accused Britain of helping to stage the Douma incident to stoke anti-Russian hysteria.

"We can not depend on the mood of someone on the other side of the ocean when he wakes up, on what a specific person takes into his head in the morning", Mr Dvorkovich said at a forum in Krasnoyarsk, according to the TASS news agency.

Separately, Russia's Defence Ministry said the majority of missiles fired during the overnight attack on Syria by U.S., British and French forces were intercepted by Syrian government air defence systems, TASS news agency reported.

He met his national security team on the situation in Syria later in the day and "no final decision has been made", the White House said in a statement on Thursday.
