USA to hit Russian Federation with new sanctions over Syria

The sources said Trump was upset by Haley's announcement. "Politically, "mission accomplished" means something broader, and I think that the president was referring in military terms". "Saying it's been a success - we won't know until we see if the regime continues to use chemical weapons".

Haley rejected the premise posed by Fox News anchor Chris Wallace that the USA has condoned Assad's use of conventional weapons to kill rebels attacking his forces, just not chemical agents.

As the coming sanctions underscore, the United States will continue to bear down on Russian Federation over its ongoing support of the Assad government and to prod it to rid Syria of chemical weapons, as Moscow committed to do in a 2013 agreement negotiated with the Obama administration.

Haley said Trump is prepared to strike Syria again if that happens, though she declined to say how the United States would respond to the use of conventional weapons.

Assad and Russian Federation have denied involvement in the attack.

'Russia can complain all it wants about fake news, but no one is buying its lies and its cover-ups, ' she said of Syria's strongest ally. Haley stressed the US was "not looking for war" and "not looking to kill people".

"More bombings and the continued presence of 2,000 US troops in northeast Syria. would undoubtedly prolong the war and the suffering of Syria's people", Glass told USA TODAY.

"Everything that has strained the relationship is on Russia's side", she said, adding that the USA hopes for improved relations with Moscow, but that "we're not going to put up with bad behavior to get it".

"We all know our work in Syria is not done", she said.

Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson attends the BBC's Marr Show in London, Apr. 15, 2018.

The U.S., France and the United Kingdom launched military strikes Friday night on what the Pentagon said were three Syrian chlorine and sarin gas research facilities, in response to a suspected chemical attack by Syrian President Bashar Assad.

US military officials said an initial assessment showed every one of the missiles struck its target on Saturday, reducing the facilities to rubble while avoiding any civilian casualties.

The second target was the Hinshar Chemical Weapons Storage Facility.

Talking points provided by the White House to DailyMail.com on Saturday mentioned upcoming sanctions and emphasized the grotesqueness of the photos of "dead and dying children" as a 'call to action among the world's civilized nations'.

Putin, in a phone call Sunday with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, described the US strike as a violation of global law.
