He said there was a heightened "danger of escalation" because of the Russian military presence in Syria.

The Russian leader warned against "ill-considered and unsafe actions ... that would have consequences beyond conjecture".

Russia's foreign minister claimed earlier on Friday that the suspected attack in Douma last weekend was staged with the help of an unspecified foreign intelligence agency.

A fact-finding mission from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is expected to head to Douma, the site of the suspected attack. Moscow warned against any strikes and threatened to retaliate.

She said "the United States estimates that (President Bashar) Assad has used chemical weapons in the Syrian war at least 50 times". And it would establish a new body to determine responsibility for chemical attacks, call for a cease-fire in Syria, unimpeded access for all humanitarian aid, and an urgent resumption of negotiations on a political settlement.

On Thursday, US officials were quoted as saying that samples from victims had tested positive for chlorine and a nerve agent.

Lavrov said Russian experts have already inspected the site of the alleged attack and found no trace of chemical weapons, adding without elaboration that Moscow has "irrefutable information that it was another fabrication".

Russian Federation has dismissed the purported chemical attack as fake and strongly warned the US and its allies against launching a military strike in Syria.

The US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said US President Donald Trump "has not yet made a decision about possible actions in Syria".

Yildirim on Friday again condemned the "heinous" the attack in Douma and said the perpetrators should "pay a price".

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