Nikki Haley Now Says Removing Assad From Power Is A US Priority

Trump Ordered Attack on Syrian Airfield

Trump Ordered Attack on Syrian Airfield

The comments were made after US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he would look into stepping up sanctions on Russian Federation and Iran, which support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

This statement referred to the U.S. President's campaign promise that unlike former president Barack Obama, he would not be focused on ousting President Assad from power.

McCain also placed himself in opposition to Tillerson's policy of the US focusing on the defeat of ISIS before it can concentrate on Assad's reprehensible behavior or a regime change in Syria.

Some have criticized the administration for ordering the strikes without Congressional approval, but Haley told CNN's Jake Tapper that Congress would always be kept informed. "We're not going to have you cover for this regime anymore, '" Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said on NBC's Meet the Press.

Over the past two years USA and allied warplanes striking IS targets in Syria have had to fly among formidable Syrian and Russian-supplied air defenses. "The idea of the casualties came after".

Johnson scrapped the trip just hours before he was due to fly out, saying: "We deplore Russia's continued defence of the Assad regime".

Writing in the Sunday Times, Sir Michael reiterated his support for the US's action against Assad's brutal regime.

"We're going to call you out for the fact that you're covering up".

"And Secretary (of State Rex) Tillerson basically saying the same thing after kind of contradicting himself and then saying the same thing argues vigorously for a plan and a strategy", McCain added.

The United States has threatened Russian Federation and Iran with tougher sanctions over their support for Syria, saying nothing "is off the table" in this regard.

Tillerson accused Moscow of failing to enforce the 2013 agreement meant to get Syria rid of its chemical arsenal.

He attributed the chemical attack in Syria "in large measure" to a "failure on Russia's part to achieve its commitment to the global community".

Graham said while he believes troops will be needed to ultimately solve the Syrian problem and that sanctions should be pursued against Russian Federation, he said Trump's course of action has been encouraging.

In a phone call with Syrian President Bashar Assad, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called the strike on Friday a "blatant violation" of Syrian sovereignty, Syrian state media reported.

UK election talk builds ahead of surprise statement from May
The opinion polls might give the opposition no chance at the moment, but in two months time the numbers could look very different. Mr Cameron said she made a "brave - and right - decision", wishing the Conservative candidates the best via Twitter.

Mr Tillerson said on Sunday that Russia's inaction had allowed the chemical attack to take place.

"We're prepared to do more".

Syria's Foreign Ministry condemned the United States strike as "a flagrant aggression" against the country and said Washington's real objective was to "weaken the strength of the Syrian army in confronting terrorist groups".

Graham said the Syrian leader intentionally did so to send a signal back to the USA commander in chief.

"Or do they want it to be a relationship in which we can find areas of cooperation that are in our mutual interest?" He emphasized that point on CBS' Face the Nation, noting that the administration is "hopeful ... we can navigate a political outcome in which the Syrian people, in fact, will determine Bashar al-Assad's fate and his legitimacy". The chemical strike left scores of civilians dead - including children - and left many others wounded. "The president will make whatever decision he thinks that is best for the American people". He also warned the USA was prepared to take further military action if necessary. Haley, for example, questioned why Moscow rushed to Syria's defense so soon after the chemical weapons attack.

They were fired from two warships in the Mediterranean Sea (USS Ross and USS Porter), in retaliation for Tuesday's deadly chemical attack, which officials said used chlorine mixed with a nerve agent, possibly sarin.

Earlier on Sunday, Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said on ABC News' "This Week" that Russian Federation is "complicit" in the chemical attack in Syria.
