British-American coordination for an international response to the chemical attack in Douma and preventing its recurrenceb

BAGHDAD, British Prime Minister TherAse Mae has discussed with US President Donald Trump the coordination between the two countries to respond to the alleged chemical attack in the Syrian city of Douma, the media office of British Prime Minister Theresa Mae said.

“The two leaders agreed, during a telephone conversation between the two sides, on the vital importance of preventing the recurrence of the use of chemical weapons by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad,” the Mae office said in a statement issued on Thursday night.

They affirmed their determination to “continue to work closely together to ensure an international response to the use of chemical weapons in Syria”.

The call comes amid growing tension over the US announcement late last week that it will respond to what it describes as a chemical attack in the city of Douma, in Syria, which the Syrian authorities blamed for its implementation.

The tone of US threats escalated yesterday by US President Donald Trump, who said that the United States missiles “coming” to Syria, while advised Russia, which previously pledged to drop if directed against the elements of the Russian army, to prepare for it, but said yesterday that he did not specify any timetable to strike Syria.
