"Ten days ago, President Trump was saying the United States of America had a duty to disengage from Syria", Macron said.

"Ten days ago, President Trump said the USA should disengage from Syria".

"We have not declared war on the regime of Bashar al-Assad", Macron said in a television interview, a day after France joined the United States and Britain in launching strikes.

But she added that the U.S. was "determined to completely crush" the Islamic State group and prevent its return.

Days later, after Syrian president Bashar-al Assad carried out his latest deadly chemical-weapons attack against rebel forces and civilians, Trump was reported to be blustering about punishing Russian Federation and Iran, which would carry great risk of broadening the Syrian Civil War.

A tweet from Mr Trump last week about USA missile strikes on Syria had read: "Get ready, Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and "smart".

Macron added that the strikes on Syria had been "perfectly carried out".

Saturday's strikes on Syria were the first major military operation since Macron's election in May previous year.

Despite soaring tensions with Russia, Macron stressed the need to "talk to everyone" in pursuing a Syrian settlement, saying his plans to visit Moscow in May remain unchanged. The Syrian leadership denied any involvement in the attack and invited the experts from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to investigate the reports.

The inspectors will investigate the site of the alleged chemical attack in Douma, which the Western allies believe killed dozens of people with the use of chlorine gas and possibly Sarin.

He also claimed France was the most active country in the diplomatic arena and at the United Nations, and said his country wanted to include Western powers, Russian Federation and Turkey in a new diplomatic initiative to find a sustainable political solution in Syria.

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that further Western attacks on Syria would bring chaos to world affairs, as Washington prepared to increase pressure on Russia with new economic sanctions.

Three sites. Firstly, the Barzeh complex, which the United States says is a centre for development, production and testing of chemical and biological weapons, although Syria denies this.

"All of our missiles reached their target", he said.
