Referring to the US-led strikes in Syria, Putin said, "If such actions committed in violation of the U.N. Charter continue, then it will inevitably lead to chaos in worldwide relations".

The leaders of Russian Federation and Iran have reaffirmed mutual cooperation on issues involving Syria following US-led missile strikes against the country last week. Putin and Rouhani believe that this incident is causing serious damage to the prospects for a political settlement in Syria.

The Western countries blame Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for the attack which killed dozens, but the Syrian government and its ally Russian Federation have denied any involvement.

Douma, which lies in the eastern Goutha district on the outskirts of the capital, was one of the last bastions near Damascus of rebels fighting to topple Mr Assad, and the alleged attack took place amid a ferocious government offensive.

'Vladimir Putin, in particular, stressed that if such actions, carried out in violation of the United Nations Charter, are repeated, that would inevitably provoke chaos in worldwide relations, ' a statement from the Kremlin said.

In a telephonic conversation with his Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Putin said that the strikes launched by the U.S. and its allies against Syria had seriously damaged the chances of achieving a peaceful resolution in the Syria conflict, according to a Kremlin statement.

USA ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley has said sanctions will be announced on Monday aimed at companies "that were dealing with equipment" related to Bashar al-Assad's alleged chemical weapons use.

Putin also emphasised the development of comprehensive cooperation between Tehran and Moscow, especially in economic and commercial sectors, and said: "In the current situation, it is essential to use all potentials and capacities to deepen relations between Iran and Russia".
