Early on Tuesday, Syrian state media said the country's air defences had responded to a missile attack over the western city of Homs.

"Yesterday we saw the American aggression, and we were able to counter it with Soviet missiles manufactured in the 1970s", Sablin quoted Assad as saying.

Foreign Minister Boris Johnson said there were now no plans for further attacks in Syria after Britain and its allies France and the United States launched air strikes on the regime's chemical weapons facilities.

The issue had been dealt with by Russian experts, said the commander, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity.

After the air strikes U.S. Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, director of the joint chiefs of staff, said he hadn't seen any indication that Russian air defense systems were used, calling Syria's response "indiscriminate" and mostly futile.

"In the U.S. administration there are specific people who it is possible to talk with", said Mr Ermakov, head of the ministry's department for non-proliferation and arms control.

In a telephone conversation with his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani, Putin and Rouhani agreed that the Western strikes had damaged the chances of achieving a political resolution in the 7-year-old Syria conflict, according to a Kremlin statement.

"Vladimir Putin, in particular, stressed that if such actions committed in violation of the U.N. Charter continue, then it will inevitably lead to chaos in global relations", the Kremlin statement said.

President Trump said the strikes were necessary to prevent chemical weapons from being used on innocent Syrians again.

On "Fox News Sunday", Haley said the term "mission accomplished" had different definitions in military and political circles. "Use often!" Trump wrote.

"They will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use", Haley said during an appearance on CBS's "Face the Nation".

"We of course know our work in Syria is not done", Haley said.

"I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapon capabilities of Syrian dictator of Bashar al-Assad". The Western states have accused forces of Syrian President Bashar Assad of an attack with the use of chemical weapons in Duma. I think everyone is going to feel it at this point.
