Putin talks with Rouhani, says further Syria strikes will ‘entail chaos’

Russian President Vladimir Putin speaks by phone with his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani regarding this weekend’s airstrikes in Syria by the US, UK and France.

“The leaders exchanged views on the situation following the missile strike on Syria delivered by the United States and its allies. They agreed that this illegal action is adversely impacting prospects for political settlement in Syria,” the Kremlin says, according to Russia’s TASS news agency.

“Vladimir Putin stressed that if such actions done in violation of the United Nations Charter are continued, it will inevitably entail chaos in international relations,” the Kremlin adds.
