France has proof Assad regime used chemical weapons: Macron

Having shunned the French media for most of his presidency, President Emmanuel Macron is to sit for two prime-time interviews this week starting Thursday as he battles strikes at home and faces his biggest test abroad in Syria.

US President Trump, however, warned that Russia, Iran and Syria will have a "big price to pay" following the suspected chemical attack, saying his administration will soon be making "some major decisions" on Syria.

Paris has established that al-Assad's government on Saturday last week used chemical weapons, including chlorine, in Douma, he said, but did not provide any details on the evidence or how it was acquired.

The British leader's office said Cabinet ministers "agreed on the need to take action to alleviate humanitarian distress and to deter the further use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime". May is not required by law to consult the House of Commons, but by convention, members of Parliament expect to be consulted.

The United States' humanitarian pretenses do not stand up to any serious scrutiny.

Things aren't expected to reach the crescendo of that watershed year by next month when the film festival rolls around. Their motivation for wealth creation was first and foremost to look after their families, then to channel surplus profits to benefit the wider community.

Mr Macron tried to dispel other misunderstandings created by distrust on the part of the unions and the government's sometimes technocratic language.

Mr Macron said he would make a decision on strikes 'in due course'.

To assert this claim, France has been careful to sustain good relations with Riyadh and Tehran without breaking the delicate equilibrium.

May recalled the ministers from their Easter holiday for the meeting at 3:30pm in Downing Street to discuss Britain's response to what she has cast as a barbaric attack that cannot go unchallenged. The way to survive lies elsewhere, in commerce and in religion, the two constants in a world of inconstancy. In 2015, Macron was the economy minister in François Hollande's Socialist government when he introduced a package of measures that became known as La Loi Macron.

For four years I have been researching the socio-economics of Syria for my new book The Merchant of Syria, with some surprising results.

His canvases are displayed in several national galleries and museums and the estimated value of one painting is more than $40 million.

Plans for Western strikes should carefully avoid Russian troops stationed in Syria to avoid any risk of military escalation with Moscow.

In February, Israel suffered the rare embarrassment of losing an F-16 jet during an operation against targets in Syria. "We are extremely uncomfortable about the fact that some countries who have confidence on their military power are using Syria as their arm wrestling field", he said. The NATO powers are in the grip of a war fever as reckless as it is criminal.

To back down now would undermine his entire campaign platform of reducing public-sector expenditure, which currently absorbs a staggering 56 percent of the country's GDP.
