Prime Minister David Cameron and President Barack Obama spoke on the phone for 40 minutes on Saturday, Mr Cameron's office said.
Both were "gravely concerned" by "increasing signs that this was a significant chemical weapons attack carried out by the Syrian regime".
Syria will let UN inspectors probe chemical attack - with video ~ link ~ It does not matter. The fix is in...it makes no difference what the truth is or who knows it...the globalist/Zionist controlled Western mainstream news media and governments will blame the victim, Syria, no matter what...to begin a General Middle East War and World War III.

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem says Damascus will provide the UN team with access to the site of the recent alleged chemical attack in the country.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Obama had asked the Pentagon to prepare a range of military options for Syria.
The US Navy repositioned a ship armed with cruise missiles in the Mediterranean on Friday and moved forces closer to Syria in anticipation of a possible order for attack by the president.
Officers at the Pentagon also said they were updating target lists for potential airstrikes on a number of government and military installations in Syria, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The military options being revised at the Pentagon range from possible strikes on Syrian military "delivery capabilities and systems" to command-and-control facilities and artillery batteries, officials said.
Russia, a principal ally of Syria, insists that the chemical attack was "clearly provocative in nature" and that footage posted online seeking to incriminate the Syrian government had been posted before the attack actually took place.
Faced with the possibility of a Russian veto at the United Nations Security Council, Obama’s national security advisers are looking at the air war in Kosovo in the late 1990s as a possible blueprint for strikes on Syria without a UN mandate.
“Kosovo, of course, is a precedent of something that is perhaps similar,” a senior administration official told The New York Times on condition of anonymity when discussing US options for Syria.
One needs to understand when looking at the Syrian conflict that even though Washington is trying to play to high morality card by arguing that its main concern is to save civilians’ lives, it is really its interests and that of its main ally and patron, Israel, which the Obama administration is looking to protect, defend and promote.
If back in 2011, Syria seemed like an easy win, given the speed at which revolutionaries in Egypt and Tunisia ousted their respective regime, Western powers soon realized that President al-Assad was indeed no easy target and that consequently some level of military interventionism would have to take place if they were ever to regain control of the situation.
The attempted Syrian coup which hid behind the veil of the Islamic Awakening stands now in all the splendor of its deceptiveness. Those who in 2011 smiled and shrugged at President al-Assad’s warnings of a foreign plot now stand in dismay before the destruction Western powers brought upon the Syrian nation, realizing that their president’s words rang true.
Just as Washington used al-Qaeda militants in Afghanistan to fight off Russia in the 1980s, the West has been bankrolling militants to oppose the Syrian army, thus risking to set alight the Levant. The arrival into the region of militants has turned the region into a sectarian hotbed, with Sunni and Shiite communities everywhere rising in condemnation of the death of their brothers.
A people which stood once united, now stand divided.
The West has worked to demonize the Syrian government and its allies - Iran and the Hezbollah - ensuring through its control of the media that only their truth would make it through, thus brainwashing not only Western viewers but Arabs everywhere.
At a time where grave allegations of mass murder are being thrown around, caution is mandatory. One needs only to look at history and America’s track records for manipulations and lies to simply take media reports at face value. Not so long ago the Pentagon claimed Iraq was manufacturing weapons of mass destruction. As it turned out no such weapons were ever found, but by the time reporters challenged then-President W. Bush, America’s new mantra was that it liberated the Iraqi people and brought democracy to the region; WMD became by then an irrelevant argument.
In light of such deceit, it would only be natural to ponder over not only Washington’s claims against Syria but also to look at its motives...
Three other destroyers are currently deployed there - the USS Gravely, USS Barry and USS Ramage. All four warships are equipped with Tomahawk cruise missiles.
Zoubi made the remarks in an interview with Lebanese TV station al-Mayadeen on Saturday.
"The basic repercussion would be a ball of fire that would burn not only Syria but the whole Middle East," said the Syrian information minister, adding, "An attack on Syria would be no easy trip."

The answer is, the Syrian government did not use chemical weapons in Damascus, or elsewhere. And while the strawman currently being knocked down by the Western media is whether the attacks were faked or real, the stark reality is that NATO and its terrorist proxies most likely did expose a large number of people to something, seeking mass casualties in a last ditch effort to salvage what is clearly the end of their "Arab Spring" blitzkrieg.
As previously reported, NATO and its proxies in Syria have both the means and the motivation to carry out chemical weapon attacks.This includes access to Libya's stockpile of chemical weapons and a NATO-enabled pipeline feeding fighters, cash, and weapons from Libya into Syria via NATO-member Turkey.

Four USN destroyers positioned near Syria - Syria: Attack us and we'll turn the Middle East into a Mass of Flames ~ link ~ The Syrian government accused rebels of using chemical weapons Saturday and warned the United States not to launch any military action against Damascus over an alleged chemical attack last week, saying such a move would set the Middle East ablaze.
Syria is intertwined in alliances with Iran, Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas and Palestinian militant groups. The country also borders its longtime foe and U.S. ally Israel, making the fallout from military action unpredictable.
NBC/WSJ Poll: Americans oppose intervention in Syria ~ link ~ Yes but the globalists and Zionists want it and they own the political whores in Washington!!! So get ready to face the worst nightmare in human history!!! Stirling
Syria: The predictable and false chemical attack ~ link ~ To date, the only use of chemical weapons in Syria has been by the Syrian so-called opposition, you know, the same people (?) who indulge in cannibalism, who are rapists, torturers, thieves and terrorists, who recently sliced the heads off Kurdish children ... and why were the videos uploaded from outside Syria the day before the "attack" happened?
The Syrian Chemical Weapon Media Hype - Pushing for military intervention ~ link ~ Washington’s official response is predictable by now: “The White House is ‘deeply concerned’ about reports that chemical weapons were used by Syria’s government against civilians”.
In the UK, the mainstream media has put on a full-court press, clearly delivering a guilty verdict even before any claims can be independently verified, a coordinated trial-by-media which looks to be designed to coax a majority public support for either a direct supply of arms to the confab of ‘rebel’ insurgencies in Syria.
