United States to impose new sanctions on Russian Federation

United States to impose new sanctions on Russian Federation

While insisting the action taken early Saturday morning in Syria was "a very strong attack on the chemical weapons program", Haley hit back on more hawkish critics who argue the United States didn't go far enough because it did not change the balance of power in the long-running Syrian civil war.

The Swedish delegation cited a briefing from the director-general that said Syria and Russian Federation were concerned that security on the ground could not be guaranteed.

Tayyip Erdogan, president of Syria's neighbor Turkey, said on Friday he had spoken by phone with Trump and Putin and told both that increasing tensions in the region was not right.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies targeted three place which includes Syrian capital Damascus with cruise-missile-equipped ships and warplanes. Israel says in response to the American-led strike in Syria that the Middle Eastern country's "murderous actions" put itself in danger. Bush addressed sailors aboard a Navy ship in May 2003 in front of a "Mission Accomplished" banner, just weeks before it became apparent that Iraqis had organized an insurgency that would tie down US forces for years.

No military measures were immediately announced, but in a clear warning to the USA and its allies, Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoi of the Russian military's General Staff said Moscow could boost Syria's Soviet-era air defense assets with batteries of state-of-the-art S-300 missiles. The Kremlin readout said that Putin warned against rushing to blame the Syrian government before conducting a "thorough and objective probe".

"Russia convenes an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss aggressive actions of the USA and its allies", President Vladimir Putin said in a statement published on the Kremlin website. Oil fell Monday from its highest close in three years in NY amid speculation that US-led military intervention in Syria won't go beyond the weekend's missile strikes.

Piazza said further, limited airstrikes are possible in Syria.

Russian Federation has military forces, including air defences, in several areas of Syria to support Assad in his long war against anti-government rebels.

Russian Federation and Iran called the use of force by the United States and its French and British allies a "military crime" and "act of aggression".

Russian officials, including President Vladimir Putin, described the strike as an act of aggression against a sovereign state carried out on the pretext of a staged chemical attack.

US President Donald Trump has warned Russian Federation of imminent military action in Syria over a suspected poison gas attack, declaring that missiles "will be coming" and lambasting Moscow for standing by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, write Susan Heavey, Makini Brice and Tom Perry.

The US says it suspects that sarin gas also was used. More than 100 precision missiles targeted a scientific research center near Damascus, a chemical weapons storage facility west of Homs and a storage facility and command post near Homs.

In addition, the summit is the first to take place since US President Donald Trump announced his plans to move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a decision roundly criticized by Arab states and their inhabitants.

"In Syria, we see confrontations and proxy wars involving several national armies, a number of armed opposition groups, many national and global militia, foreign fighters from everywhere in the world, and various terrorist organizations", he said. He said the allies acted without a United Nations mandate because of the "constant stalemate of the Russians" in the Security Council.

The U.S. -led operation won broad Western support.

A fact-finding mission from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is expected to head to Douma, the site of the suspected attack.

"First of all the president made it very clear we can not have chemical weapons usage anywhere, and we will continue to combat that in any way we need to protect American interests", Nikki Haley told CBS News' "Face the Nation".

"For its part, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford said the Pentagon specifically identified targets to mitigate the risk of Russian forces being involved".

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

"I would like to believe that we will not see a day that is worse than today", he said.
