More strikes by West on Syria would spark 'chaos,' Putin tells Rouhani

GETTYThe US has denied Syria shot down any missiles

Haley said the sanctions, to be announced Monday by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, would target companies that supplied Damascus with equipment and other material related to chemical weapons.

Speaking to a group of visiting Russian politicians, he said the US, Britain and France had waged a campaign of "lies and misinformation" against Syria and its ally Russia. I think everyone is going to feel it at this point.

"I can really confirm that the sanctions are to be imposed on Russia without any link to reality", she said on Russian television.

The warning came a day after Donald Trump's statement that the U.S. was "locked and loaded" to strike Syria again if the country carries out new chemical attacks.

Putin made his remarks on Sunday in a telephone conversation with his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani after the US, France and Britain launched missile strikes on Syria on Saturday over a suspected poison gas attack.

She said it would affect companies "dealing with equipment related to Assad and any chemical weapons use" as Russian Federation needed to feel the consequences for "protecting" the Assad regime. Bush addressed sailors aboard a Navy ship in May 2003 alongside a "Mission Accomplished" banner, just weeks before it became apparent that Iraqis had organized an insurgency that would tie down US forces for years. "This is not about trying to turn the tide of the conflict in Syria", he said, reported Reuters.

He was maligned on social media for using the phrase "mission accomplished", which became notorious in 2003 when then-President George W. Bush declared "mission accomplished" two months into what would become an eight-year-long war in Iraq.

"My view is that it's time the President seek an authorization from Congress, and it's up to congress to debate that and give some definition to what it is we're doing", said Welch.

He said earlier this week that France was ready to attack the "chemical capabilities" of the Assad regime. Several large explosions have been heard in the Syrian capital Damascus.

He said the threat from Moscow is being taken "very seriously" by the Government.

Russian Federation and Iran have called the strikes a "military crime" and "act of aggression".

Negotiations on the draft resolution are set to begin on Monday, but diplomats said it remained unclear when the council would vote on the proposal.

"The United States and its allies have no proof and, without even waiting for the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to take a position, have carried out this military attack. and are responsible for the regional consequences", said foreign ministry spokesperson Bahram Ghasemi.

The attacks have also drawn widespread condemnation across the US, France and the UK.

In Damascus, hundreds of Syrians gathered on Monday in a landmark square Damascus, rallying in support of their armed forces, which they say succeeded in confronting the airstrikes by the West.

Mr Assad was described by the Russians as being in a good mood, a day after the airstrikes destroyed three chemical weapons facilities.
