Syria's allies say airstrikes undercut political resolution

World war 3 Russia UK Syria chemical attack

She said the three U.S. goals for accomplishing its mission are making sure chemical weapons are not used in a way that could harm USA national interests, defeating the Islamic State group and having a good vantage point to watch what Iran is doing.

"We are prepared to sustain this pressure, if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will", she said.

Speaking on Fox News on Sunday, Haley listed three aims for the United States: ensuring that chemical weapons are not used in any way that poses a risk to U.S. interests, that so-called Islamic State group is defeated and that there is a good vantage point to watch what Iran is doing.

Russian Federation has denied involvement, and on Saturday also condemned strikes against Syria by Western powers, which Britain took part in. And it would establish a new body to determine responsibility for chemical attacks, call for a cease-fire in Syria, unimpeded access for all humanitarian aid, and an urgent resumption of negotiations on a political settlement.

The bombings, hailed by US President Donald Trump as a success but denounced by Damascus and its allies as an act of aggression, marked the biggest intervention by Western countries against Assad and ally Russian Federation, whose Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called them "unacceptable and lawless".

The comments came during a closed-door meeting at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, convened after an April 7 attack in the town of Douma, outside the Syrian capital, in which dozens of people were allegedly killed with poison gas.

Russian Federation and Syria also clashed with the three Western allies over the legality of the airstrikes and responsibility for the Security Council's paralysis.

Asked what he thought the defeat meant for his own position, he said: "I'm not going to talk about my role". We didn't put them under enough pressure and allowed them to play through us too easily.

Iran and Russian Federation should not allow the "fire of a new tension" to flare up in the region, Rouhani said, adding that the airstrikes were an "invasion" aimed at "emboldening defeated terrorists", IRNA reported.

United States' ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Sunday said that her country would announce more sanctions against Russian Federation on Monday.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said Monday the government was discussing possible measures to support Russian companies hit by new USA sanctions, RIA said.

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria". The U.N. Security Council rejected a Russian resolution calling for condemnation of the "aggression" by the U.S., France and Britain.

Following up on President Donald Trump's threat, the United States - along with allies Britain and France - rained cruise missiles at three locations in Syria on Saturday, the biggest strike by the West in the seven years of the war in Syria. "Reports show a lot of care was taken not to hit Russian targets, which is a good sign and the market should take heart from that", said Salman Ahmed, chief investment strategist at Lombard Odier investment managers in London, speaking before trading resumed.

"And what's most important is no one contests that the use of chemical weapons can not be tolerated and must be deterred", he said.
