Macron, Trump want “firm reaction” on Syria after alleged chemical attack: Elysee

Paris (AFP) – French President Emmanuel Macron and US leader Donald Trump said they wanted a “firm response” to the alleged chemical attack on Syrian civilians in Douma, in a new telephone call on the assault, according to the Elysee Palace late Monday.

In their second discussion in two days about Saturday’s suspected chemical attack, which has drawn widespread condemnation, the two leaders “reiterated their desire for a firm response from the international community to these new violations of the chemical weapons ban”.
