"Regimes that think they can do everything they want, including the worst things that violate global law, cannot be allowed to act".

President Emmanuel Macron says France has proof that the Syrian government launched chlorine gas attacks.

"We have proof that. chemical weapons were used, at least chlorine, and that they were used by the regime of Bashar Al Assad", Macron said during an interview on France's TF1 television on Thursday.

Mr. Macron said that he would respond "at a time of our choosing, when we judge it to be the most useful and the most effective".

In a tweet sent Wednesday morning, Trump warned that missiles would be coming "nice and new and "smart" on Syria, but in a later tweet insisted he "never said" an attack would take place.

He had also blamed Russian President Vladimir Putin as well as Iran for "backing Animal Assad" and warned they would have a "big price to pay".

Germany wanted, however, to ensure "that all efforts are made to demonstrate that this attack with chemical weapons is not acceptable", she said.

The timing of the U.S.'s response is also unclear.

MSNBC also reported U.S. officials had obtained blood and urine samples from victims of the alleged chemical attack in Syria last weekend and the samples tested positive for chemicals, mainly for chlorine and some for a nerve agent.

The French president, who said he was in daily contact with President Trump, said any strikes would go after Syria's "chemical capabilities". "Could be very soon or not so soon at all!"

The regime in Syria and its ally Russian Federation have vehemently denied that the Assad regime is behind the attack, instead pinning it on rebels.

The Syrian president added that the threats endanger worldwide peace and security and that military action would only contribute to the "further destabilization" of the region.
