The Group of Seven leading industrialized nations has issued a joint statement endorsing the US -led air strikes in Syria.

In Istanbul, protesters outside the French Consulate demonstrated against the "imperialist aggression in Syria" while those in Baghdad carried Syrian flags as a show of unity as they burned USA flags. Moscow condemned the Western states for refusing to wait for the OPCW's findings before attacking.

"Yes, yes, yes - a million times yes to Bashar al-Assad", said Radina Awad, another participant who wore sunglasses.

Russian Federation and Iran have called the action a "military crime" and "act of aggression".

European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said the European Union wants to use a major meeting on Syria in Brussels next week to give impetus to United Nations peace efforts following Saturday's airstrikes.

A Kremlin statement said Mr Putin and his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani, agreed during a telephone conversation that the air strikes had damaged the chances of achieving a political resolution of the conflict in Syria.

A Kremlin statement on Sunday quoted Russian President Vladimir Putin as having told Iranian leader Hassan Rouhani that the missile strike was a violation of the United Nations charter and that future such actions "will inevitably lead to chaos in global relations". Iran's Supreme Leader called the attack a crime and the country's Revolutionary Guard Corps said it gave "the resistance a more open hand", although it did not threaten to retaliate.

The US, France and Britain launched 105 missiles against Syria on Saturday, targeting three sites they said were linked to a chemical weapons programme. When pressed, however, he acknowledged that some unspecified portion of Assad's chemical arms infrastructure was not targeted.

The US said it suspected sarin gas also was used.

A team from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) arrived in the Syrian capital on Saturday to carry out an investigation into the alleged chemical weapons attack on the town of Douma, where opposition activists said more than 40 people were killed. It later deployed another 5,000 security forces there.

He continued, "Russia must decide if it will continue down this dark path or if it will join with civilized nations as a force for stability and peace".

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov says Moscow would make every effort to improve political relations with the West, TASS news agency reports.

He said the airstrikes were proportionate and showed "the world has said enough is enough".
