US Preparing New Sanctions on Russian Federation over Syria, Haley Says

US ambassador to the United Nations discusses USA -led strikes on the Assad regime in retaliation for suspected chemical weapons attack, future of USA policy toward Syria, Russia and Iran.

Haley later told CBS that sanctions would be announced, likely on Monday, against Russian companies supplying the Syrian regime.

Directly taunting US President Donald Trump, Assad said the effectiveness of Russia's weapons in repelling the strike proved whose military was really "lagging behind". Angus King (I-Maine) said on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper. "I think everyone knows that we sent a strong message".

"There is no proposal on the table for further attacks because so far, thank heavens, the Assad regime has not been so foolish as to launch another chemical weapons attack", he told BBC1's Andrew Marr Show.

Global leaders have been reacting to Friday night's air strike in Syria.

In the days leading up to the USA -led airstrike, both Syria and Russian Federation said that reports of the chemical attack were fabricated.

"When it comes to this use of chemical weapons, it is clear to Canada that chemical weapons were used and that they were used by the Assad regime", Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said Friday. Chlorine, in contrast, has been used more widely in Syria's conflict without past USA reprisals and is far easier to find and weaponize, experts say. That's the last thing the President wanted was war.

The US said it had communicated with Russian Federation ahead of the strikes through the normal procedures of their "deconfliction" hotline but no details of the attacks were given. "This was not muscle flexing".

Nasr al-Hariri, a senior opposition leader, said the global community must take responsibility for any retaliation by the Syrian government against civilians in opposition areas. He wrote, "If we do nothing there will be other people and other governments around the world who will look at the impunity of Assad and ask themselves: they got away with it - why shouldn't I?" "They went out to destroy critical chemical weapons infrastructure in Syria, and they did exactly that".

U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence is attending the Summit of the Americas in Trump's stead, and is scheduled to meet with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday.

Haley said the three US goals for accomplishing its mission are making sure chemical weapons are not used in a way that could harm USA national interests; that the Islamic State group is defeated; and that there is a good vantage point to watch what Iran is doing.

"We all know our work in Syria is not done", she said.

French President Emmanuel Macron said he had persuaded Trump to commit long-term to Syria.

Khatib said she doesn't believe most Canadians are aware of the true scale of the human rights atrocities that are striking her home country.

If you just give me a few seconds just to tell President Trump once again, please, sir, what you did was unbelievable, what you did was powerful message of hope for a lot of people inside and outside of Syria.

Sen. Tim Kaine, also appearing on "Face the Nation", slammed the air strikes as illegal and reckless without approval from Congress. Syria said they were meeting officials in Damascus today and that a visit to the site of the alleged chemical attack was being facilitated.

President Trump has not yet responded to Eid's "beer summit" invitation.
