Through his tweets, which do not fit the severity of the subject as it has always been, U.S. President Donald Trump is both shaking global markets and adding a new one to the U.S. administration's complicated messages in the recent period.

Germany has welcomed the US -led military strikes on the Syrian regime's chemical sites after last week's chemical attack in Douma.

"A perfectly executed strike last night".

"Tomorrow in London, the talks between France, the United Kingdom, the United States and [Germany] will take place during which we will coordinate further actions", Maas told reporters in Berlin.

"Could not have had a better result".

US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis called the strikes a "one-time shot" with no additional military action planned for now.

Germany and France will introduce the new format of talks on Syria, which would include influential states to ensure the political settlement of the conflict in the Middle Eastern country, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said on Saturday.

Germany's foreign minister said on Friday that Berlin is looking to step up its pressure on Russian Federation over the Syria issue. "We support the decision of our American, British and French allies, who, being permanent members of the UN Security Council, thus taking responsibility" - continued Merkel.

Chancellor Angela Merkel has said that Germany won't join military strikes against Assad, while leaving non-military options open. But she added that the violation of worldwide rules against chemical weapons is serious, and "the reactions will be appropriate".

"Germany will strongly support all diplomatic steps in this direction", - assured the Chancellor.
