China's Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Hua Chunying, during a daily briefing on Friday, said her country was urging calm.
When CNN asked about USA allegations that Russian Federation might have been complicit, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov replied via text message: "That is not true".
He stopped short of accusing Russian Federation of being directly involved in the planning or execution of the attack, saying he had not seen "any hard evidence" to suggest the nation was an accomplice to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
"I have hit Russian Federation over the head more times than I can count and it's because if they do something wrong we're going to call them out on it", she told the annual Women in the World Summit.
