New sanctions on Russian Federation coming, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley says

New sanctions on Russian Federation coming, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley says”

American officials said the strikes were retaliation for a suspected.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime was suspected of orchestrating a chlorine attack, which occurred on April 7.

On Sunday, French President Emmanuel Macron took credit for convincing Trump to change his mind about pulling out of Syria.

"We will work calmly, methodically and professionally, using all opportunities to remove the situation from its current extremely risky political peak".

Thousands of people in such area carried banners that described the aggression as a cowardly action, which aims at increasing the moral collapse of terrorist groups operating in Syrian territory.

He said Russian Federation and Syria are united in trying "to protect worldwide law based on respect of the sovereignty of countries and the wills of people".

In the emblematic square of Sadallah Jaberi, in the northern city of Aleppo, over 15,000 citizens assembled as an expression of condemnation of the attack perpetrated by the United States and other Western countries. It was not clear when the visit would take place.

The action was in response to a recent deadly attack in the town of Douma.

Although officials said the singular target was Assad's chemical weapons capability, his air force, including helicopters he allegedly has used to drop chemical weapons on civilians, were spared.

Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said there will be additional Russian sanctions.

Haley also repeated her comment Saturday, at an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council, that the USA remains "locked and loaded".

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

Russian Federation also decried the USA -led operation as a failure, saying the majority of the rockets fired at Syria were intercepted by the Syrian government's air defense systems.

Haley said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will be making the announcement by Monday and it will affect companies that are "dealing with equipment related to Assad and any chemical weapons use". He added that he knew the media would "seize" on the phrase, but said it should be used often.

She also said she's not impressed with the reaction of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who expressed support for the strikes but seems reluctant to get directly involved. Corbyn said in an interview with the BBC. Russian Federation doesn't have "very good friends".

Syrian Canadians expressed a range of reactions to the recent US -led air strikes against Syria's government, with some denouncing foreign aggression and others calling for even stronger action to end the conflict that has devastated the country.

"Good souls will not be humiliated", Assad tweeted, while hundreds of Syrians gathered in Damascus, the capital, where they flashed victory signs and waved flags in scenes of defiance after the early morning barrage. The U.S. and its allies accused Assad's forces of using chemical weapons, a claim Syria and Russian Federation have rejected. Syria has always denied any chemical use and accused rebels of fabricating the attack.

Sarin had previously appeared to be the threshold for intervention.

"We of course know that our work in Syria is not done", she said.
