Russia says US will want dialogue after Syria strikes

Russia says US will want dialogue after Syria strikes

But Washington said on Sunday it would impose further sanctions against Russian Federation on Monday over Moscow's support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The Russian measure would have condemned the "aggression" against Syria and demanded that the three allies refrain from any further strike.

"Everyone is going to feel it at this point", Ms Haley said, warning of consequences for Assad's foreign allies.

Russian Federation had said all along that Syria had no need to use chemical weapons.

Haley made clear the United States won't be pulling troops out of Syria right away, saying USA involvement there "is not done".

French president Emmanuel Macron claimed on Sunday that his country convinced Donald Trump to keep an American presence in Syria.

Diplomats said negotiations on the draft resolution would begin on Monday and it was not immediately clear when the United States, France and Britain wanted to put it to a vote. Her father remains hospitalized but British health officials say he is improving.

The White House pushed back against Macron's comments about Trump's intentions for USA forces.

Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the meeting confirmed that the USA and its allies "continue to put global politics and diplomacy in the realm of myth-making - myths invented in London, Paris and Washington".

"With the political and diplomatic actions that we're taking now, we wanted [Syria's] friends, Iran and Russian Federation, to know that we meant business and that they were going to be feeling the pain from this as well", Haley said. He said Syria's air defenses were ineffective and that numerous more than 40 surface-to-air missiles fired by the Syrians were launched after the allied attack was over.

The government's capture of Douma, the last town held by the rebels in eastern Ghouta, marks a major victory for Assad.

Naeem Aslam, chief market analyst at Think Markets, said gold was poised to gain on Monday but the rally would not be very steep: "The focus will be on the counter-reaction from Russian Federation".

On Saturday, US, French and British missile attacks struck at the heart of Syria's chemical weapons programme in retaliation for a suspected poison gas attack a week ago.

The strikes "successfully hit every target", said Dana W. White, the chief Pentagon spokeswoman. "We know that it is now up to Bashar al-Assad on whether he's going to use chemical weapons again".

In his televised address from the White House on Friday, Trump said the USA was prepared to keep up the economic, diplomatic and military pressure on Assad until he ends a pattern of killing his own people with internationally banned chemical weapons.

The air defense forces of Syria and Russian Federation is not impressed, none of the more than 100 shells fired by the U.S., Britain and France on the production facilities of the chemical substances in Syria. That did not mean military strikes would continue.

Asked about Trump's "Mission Accomplished" assertion, White said it pointed to the successful targeting of three Syrian chemical weapons sites.

Haley appeared on "Fox News Sunday" and CBS' "Face the Nation".
