Guterres delayed a planned trip to Saudi Arabia to deal with the aftermath of the military action.

United nations , Apr 7 UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres today urged restraint and the search for a political solution in Syria a day after the United States struck an air base in the country in retaliation for a chemical attack.

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.

"Any use of chemical weapons is abhorrent. The suffering it causes is horrendous," Guterres said.

The UN chief said it was important to act in line with the UN charter and international law.

He urged the UN Security Council to agree on establishing an inquiry that would identify the perpetrators of chemical attacks.

Russia this week vetoed a US proposal to set up such a panel following an alleged chemical weapons attack on the rebel-held town of Douma that killed more than 40 people, according to medics and rescuers.
