U.S. envoy to UN Nikki Haley says new sanctions coming on Russian Federation

U.S. envoy to UN Nikki Haley says new sanctions coming on Russian Federation

Asked about U.S. -Russia relations, Haley said ties were "very strained" but that the United States still hoped for a better relationship.

Haley also said the United States would not pull its troops out of Syria before three goals have been accomplished: defeating Islamic State militants, ensuring chemical weapons will not be used and maintaining the ability to watch Iran. "That's why you saw him expel sixty Russian spies after the attack in Salisbury". Chlorine, in contrast, has been used more widely in Syria's conflict without past USA reprisals, and the chemical is far easier to find and weaponize, experts say.

The United States, Britain and France launched airstrikes Friday night against Syrian research, storage and military sites after the Assad regime was blamed for a chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of civilians. "These air strikes are not only unconstitutional, they are dangerously escalating a conflict that could send us into a war with multiple countries", Jayapal said. A senior Russian military official said on Saturday that Syria's air defences, which mostly consist of systems made in the former Soviet Union, had intercepted 71 of the 105 American, British and French missiles. "We of course know that our work in Syria is not done", she said.

"In the US administration there are specific people who it is possible to talk with", said Ermakov, head of the ministry's department for non-proliferation and arms control.

"They will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to (Syrian President Bashar al) Assad and chemical weapons use".

But Haley said the USA would not pull its troops out of Syria - despite vows by President Trump to bring the military home - until its goals are accomplished.


For a president who has been widely criticized for not using strong language against Russia, Trump framed Russia's role in remarkably personal terms. He added that the Congress must have a full role in reviewing and approving the strategy.

The monitoring group said the source of the blast on April 14 was not immediately clear and could have been caused by an air strike or an incident.

Moscow and Damascus are waging the same "battles" against terrorism and "to protect worldwide law based on respect of the sovereignty of countries and the wills of people", Assad said in comments carried by state media, an apparent jab at the three Western allies.

Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke by phone with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, and they agreed the Western airstrikes were an "illegal action. adversely impacting prospects for political settlement in Syria", a Kremlin statement said.

Celebrating his crushing victory over rebels in Douma, Eastern Ghouta, where the suspected chemical attack took place, Assad was said to be in a "good mood" today.
