The UK Cabinet agreed at a meeting on Thursday that Syrian President Bashar Assad's government was highly likely responsible for the alleged chemical attack and that Prime Minister Theresa May should coordinate the response to the incident with the United States and France.

Russian Federation has warned the West against attacking its Syrian ally President Bashar al-Assad, who is also supported by Iran, and says there is no evidence of a chemical attack in Douma, a town near Damascus which had been rebel-held until this month.

"Cabinet agreed the Prime Minister should continue to work with allies in the United States and France to coordinate an worldwide response", the statement added.

She further expressed her disinterest towards the fact-finding mission conducted by the Organization of the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons while reiterating that as per the USA intelligence President Assad orchestrated the attack.

So far, the United Kingdom has been launching air strikes in Syria from its military base in Cyprus, but only against targets linked to the Islamic State terrorist group.

"The government appears to be waiting for instructions from President Donald Trump on how to proceed", Corbyn said in a statement.

But they backed action in Iraq the following year, and again in Syria in 2015, strictly limiting strikes to Islamic State (IS) group targets.

Prime Minister Theresa May has condemned the suspected chemical attack in Syria calling it "shocking and barbaric".

British lawmakers voted down taking military action against Damascus in 2013, in what was widely viewed as an assertion of parliamentary sovereignty on the use of force.

Another Conservative MP, former London mayoral candidate Zac Goldsmith, tweeted: "We need a clear response to the Syrian chemical outrage".

The Prime Minister has recalled her cabinet ministers from an Easter break in anticipation of action, and they will be asked to "consider the next steps" at a meeting this afternoon, a Downing Street source told The Times.
