United Nations rejects Russian attempt to condemn U.S. 'aggresion'

United Nations rejects Russian attempt to condemn U.S. 'aggresion'

"However that I presume we think it is astonishing, as do most folks, a nation which helped assemble the chemical weapons convention along with the worldwide non-proliferation regime, " which Russian Federation can now be clearly one of these rogue states which are looking to undo it", the ambassador explained.

The US' keenness to strike stemmed from its charge that the Syrian government had attacked a rebel-held enclave within the country with chemical weapons, killing about 50 people, and the West says it draws the line at chemical weapons, whose use is banned in worldwide law.

"The worldwide community will not allow chemical weapons to come back into our everyday life", she said in an interview aired Sunday.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told the BBC he hopes there is no need for more strikes in Syria, but that Britain and its allies will consider further action if Assad uses chemical weapons again.

Her remarks come just a day after her country led fellow allies United Kingdom and France in launching air strikes in Syria in response to last weeks alleged chemical attacks.

President Donald Trump said a US-led missile attack on Syria's chemical weapons program was "perfectly carried out".

Russian Federation had earlier warned that it would equip Syria with better anti-air missile defense systems to take down any missile attacks in the future.

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

Britain argued that the strikes were "both right and legal" to alleviate humanitarian suffering from repeated use of toxic gas in attacks in Syria's seven-year war.

This comes after the Trump administration announced another set of sanctions earlier this month on 24 wealthy Russians and government officials, as well as over a dozen Russian-controlled entities.

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria". The U.S. says it suspects that sarin gas also was used.

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

Syria and Russian Federation deny chemical weapons were used in the final offensive that captured Douma, a rebel-held territory east of Damascus. What happens next, she said, is up to Assad and his Russian and Iranian allies. According to Damascus, which has repeatedly said it had eliminated its chemical weapons stockpiles, the attack damaged Syrian infrastructure, and left three civilians injured.

U.S. Marine Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie, director of the Joint Staff at the Pentagon, said the allied airstrikes "took out the heart" of Assad's chemical weapons arsenal.
