US' Haley rules out one-on-one talks with Syria's Assad

16 April 2018

The U.N. Security Council met to debate the strikes, but rejected a Russian resolution calling for condemnation of the "aggression" by the three Western allies.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime was suspected of orchestrating a chlorine attack, which occurred on April 7. "What we are saying is at some point we want to see our military come home", she said. While he declared success, the Pentagon said the pummeling of three chemical-related facilities left enough others intact to enable the Assad government to use banned weapons against civilians if it chooses.

In his televised address from the White House on Friday evening, Trump said the US was prepared to sustain economic, diplomatic and military pressure on Assad until the Syrian leader ends what Trump called a criminal pattern of killing his own people with internationally banned chemical weapons.

Ms Haley said the United States and its allies had given diplomacy "chance after chance" but Russian Federation had continued to veto UN resolutions.

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. Demonstrators say they are against Trump's administration and believe this is a war of aggression.

"We convinced him it was necessary to stay", the French leader added.

"Um. I would have recommended ending this tweet with not those two words", wrote President Bush's former press secretary, Ari Fleischer, who went on to explain the story of the banner for those who didn't remember.

Sen. Tim Kaine, also appearing on "Face the Nation", slammed the air strikes as illegal and reckless without approval from Congress. "President Trump is not a king".

"It's illegal because he didn't come and ask permission", he said.

While some Syrians are in favour of air strikes, others say foreign aggression isn't the answer.

Likewise, they expressed their strong support and confidence in the Syrian Army and its ability to respond to any military action and defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity. "And we were able to repel it with Soviet missiles from the 70s", lawmaker Dmitry Sablin quoted Assad as saying, according to Russia's TASS news agency.

A day after the bombardment, Assad appeared briefly on state TV and told a group of visiting Russian lawmakers that the US and its allies were spreading "lies and misinformation" against Syria.

Disputing the Russian military's contention that Syrian air defense units downed 71 allied missiles, McKenzie said no US or allies missiles were stopped. He also called for a "war powers act" that would force the British government to seek parliamentary approval for future military action. The Kremlin said in a statement that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani spoke by phone and agreed that the Western airstrikes were an "illegal action. adversely impacting prospects for political settlement in Syria".

Putin called the military action a violation of the UN Charter and warned that if it continues, "it will inevitably entail chaos in worldwide relations", according to the statement.
