The United States, Britain and France launched air strikes in response to a suspected chemical attack in the rebel-held town of Douma a week ago that killed at least 40 people.

China and Bolivia supported the Russian measure, while the three allies along with Sweden, the Netherlands, Poland, Kuwait and Ivory Coast opposed it. Peru, Kazakhstan, Ethiopia and Equatorial Guinea abstained.

"The United Kingdom, France and the United States acted - not as revenge, not as punishment, not as a symbolic show of force", said U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley.

The military operation was ordered in retaliation for what the West says was repeated use of chemical weapons by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces against civilians. "We acted to deter the future use of chemical weapons by holding the Syrian regime responsible for its atrocities against humanity".

"You are not only placing yourselves above worldwide law, but you are trying to re-write global law", Nebenzia said after the vote.

France's U.N. Ambassador Francois Delattre said the result of the vote sends "a clear message" that Security Council members recognized the need for the airstrikes, and "their proportional and targeted nature".

He went on to stress that the UN Security Council, of which the three countries are permanent members, "has primary responsibility for the maintenance of worldwide peace and security". "I have repeatedly expressed my deep disappointment that the Security Council failed to agree on a dedicated mechanism for effective accountability for the use of chemical weapons in Syria".

Britain's ambassador said she would "take no lessons" in global law from Russian Federation. I call on the members of the Security Council to unite and exercise that responsibility.

Addressing told the council, Haley said the United States was confident that the military strikes had crippled Syria's chemical weapons program.

Nebenzia responded saying the environment is "not very conducive for any rapprochement" and "the political and risky military situation we are in now" must be sorted out first.

Guterres said he has asked Syrian special envoy Staffan de Mistura to come to NY as soon as possible to consult "on the most effective way to accelerate the political process".

"There are no military solutions to the crisis in Syria", Guterres said.
