Bashar al-Assad's ouster a priority of United States: Nikki Haley

Iranian President Rouhani speaks during joint news conference following meeting with Russian President Putin at Kremlin in Moscow

Jake Tapper asked. "Regime change is the policy?"

And I think he's making a serious mistake.

The Hawaii congresswoman continued, "I have not seen that independent investigation occur and that proof presented showing exactly what happened and there are a number of theories of exactly what happened that day".

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani called Bashar al-Assad to reaffirm his support for the Syrian leader in the wake of a United States missile strike, Rouhani's office said on Sunday.

Standing firm, the Trump administration has signalled new sanctions would soon follow the missile attack, and the Pentagon was even probing whether Russian Federation itself was involved in the chemical weapons assault that compelled President Trump to action.

However, this has upset some members of the public who believe she is forgetting about the historic European Union referendum. May's governing Conservatives now have a slight majority, with 330 seats in the 650-seat House of Commons.

The Syrian government has categorically denied the accusation, saying it had struck an arms depot belonging to a jihadist group.

Ms Bishop said the attack on the base from which the chemical weapons attack took place was a "proportionate, calibrated and targeted". However, a USA official said all but one of the 59 missiles struck their targets, hitting multiple aircraft and air shelters, and destroying the fuel area.

USA officials said the presence of Russian advisers at the airfield used to launch the attack raised questions about how they could not have known. "And I'm sure when they can declassify that, they will".

But Haley reiterated her statements about further actions in Syria in her interview with Tapper.

"This very airport that was attacked by the United States has been fighting against terrorists for the last six years", Assad adviser Buthaina Shaaban told the AP in Damascus. "If he needs to do more, he will do more".

Looking at some alternate time periods, the 12 month price index is 0.96150, the 24 month is 0.87499, and the 36 month is 1.03072. Winslow Evans & Crocker Inc.'s holdings in Martin Midstream Partners L.P. were worth $198,000 as of its most recent SEC filing.

The Russian Defense Ministry made no mention of any Russian presence at the base before, during or after the attack, and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said there were no Russian casualties.

The GOP lawmaker on Sunday defended the Trump administration's decision to attack Syria, calling the Assad regime's chemical weapons attack a "moral outrage". "And why Russian Federation has not been able to achieve that is unclear to me".

Haley echoed his comments in somewhat harsher tones on "State of the Union".

"The entire administration was in agreement that this was something that had to be done", Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said on NBC's "Meet the Press". "So, yes, I'm skeptical", she said. "How can they with a straight face cover for Assad, because if they're covering for Assad, then what are they really saying?" Assad signed the chemical weapons treaty ban.

Trump's national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, said today that he saw the situation as a "great opportunity" for Russian Federation. "So they want to make sure they're tracking those (US) ships". "The crimes he has committed against his own people are so enormous", Mr Turnbull said from Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.

McGinn also pledged to support a city-wide income tax this year, though he's certain it would immediately be challenged in court. The city should first "thoroughly review our budget" for possible savings.

Another official privy to the discussions said the administration has contingency plans for possible additional strikes as early as Friday night, depending on how Assad responds to the first attack.
