The OPCW investigations are yet to arrive the area of Douma where the chemical attack allegedly took place on April 7.
However, it looks that the US-led block has its own “independent mechanism of investigation” to prove the “bloody dictator” involvement in this incident.
France has already stated that they will respond to the chemical attack when they collect all the “proof”.
“We have proof that chemical weapons were used last week, at least chlorine, and that they were used by the regime of Bashar al-Assad,” the French President Emmanuel Macron said at the French TF1 channel.
French media has reported that Macron is claiming to respond “at a time of our choosing, when we judge it to be the most useful and the most effective”. However, during his interview the President stressed that he wanted to avoid “an escalation”:
“France will in no way allow an escalation or anything that would harm regional stability, but we cannot allow regimes that believe they can act with impunity to violate international law in the worst possible way.”
Germany is pointing its readiness to assist its allies, but without German military involvement the German broadcaster Deutsche Welle reported.
The German Chancellor Angela Merkel stated during the press conference: “Just doing nothing at all is also difficult”. However, Merkel stressed that Berlin supported the need to “send a clear signal that the use of chemical weapons” is unacceptable.

Then Merkel emphasized that if the US, the UK and France were to take military action, Germany would find non-military ways to help.
The Chancellor criticized Russian blocking of the full OPCW investigation into the alleged Syrian chemical weapons attack. She stressed that this measure “does not cast Russia in a positive light.”
Merkel has twice evaded the questions about the statements of the US President Donald Trump in Tweeter, whether this tweeter-style diplomacy made the situation more difficult.
Amid the US allies are keeping the support to respond to the alleged chemical attack, the US President Donald Trump has allegedly backpaddled with his tweeter-diplomacy.
Earlier Trump warned that “smart” missiles would be fired in response to an alleged chemical attack. Recently, he has tweeted that he “never said when”.
Never said when an attack on Syria would take place. Could be very soon or not so soon at all! In any event, the United States, under my Administration, has done a great job of ridding the region of ISIS. Where is our “Thank you America?”

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs welcomed the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to investigate the alleged chemical weapon attack in Syria:
“We consider that amid the rabid anti Syrian campaign, conducted by Western countries, it is inadmissible to delay the OPCW inspection”.
The Russian MFA is concerned about the drawned resolutions on April 10. As these resolutions had been designed to pursue political goals:
“The stance of the Western “trio”, who are permanent members of the UN Security Council, is repelling us”.
“Another question has appeared. Do the US and its allies need any investigation at all? Obviously, no. This group “has set” the guilty in advance and it is allegedly not going to back pedal”.
Russian spokesman Dmitry Peskov stressed that Russia and the US are using a “deconfliction” telephone line for Syria amid the growing tensions over the prospect of a US strike on Syria.
“The line exists and it is active. In general, the line is used by both sides,” Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
The harmful consequences of the US-led block stance are clear. The international security is threaten amid the open aggression in the escalating conflict. The “mysterious” “proof” and tweeter-diplomacy may just defer the “becoming” danger.
