USA to announce more sanctions against Russian Federation

OCT. 7 2016

The two sides agreed to closely cooperate to counter aggressive policies by Western nations.

By contrast, eight countries voted against the Russian draft - the USA, U.K., France, Netherlands, Sweden, Kuwait, Poland and Ivory Coast.

China and Bolivia supported the Russian measure, while the three allies along with Sweden, the Netherlands, Poland, Kuwait and Ivory Coast opposed it. Peru, Kazakhstan, Ethiopia and Equatorial Guinea abstained.

The United States will want to maintain a dialogue with Russia about strategic stability following Western missile strikes on Syria, Russian news agencies cited a Russian Foreign Ministry official as saying on Sunday.

Assad denies he has used chemical weapons, and the USA has yet to present evidence of what it says led to the allied action: a chlorine gas attack on civilians in Douma on April 7 that killed more than 40 people.

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.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley told the council "there is clear information demonstrating Assad's culpability".

In an indication that the West, too, would prefer to lower tensions, the United States and Britain both reiterated that their military action on Saturday was not aimed at Assad, Putin's ally, only at his use of chemical weapons.

"When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line", Haley stressed. Russian Federation has vetoed at least six resolutions in the U.N. Security Council regarding chemical weapons.

Referring to the airstrikes, Haley said: "I think everyone knows that we sent a strong message".

Asked about Trump's "Mission Accomplished" assertion, White said it pointed to the successful targeting of the three Syrian chemical weapons sites. The US ambassador in Moscow, John Huntsman, said in a video, "Before we took action, the United States communicated with" Russia to 'reduce the danger of any Russian or civilian casualties'.

"If we do break above $1,365, that next week we would be very bullish", said Aslam. "If we continue on this path, we will soon reach the diplomacy of the absurd".

The United States will place more sanctions on Russian Federation this week related to its support for Syria's chemical weapons program, according to Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations.

Britain believes "that is wholly within the principles and practices of the United Nations", she said.

"Russian sanctions will be coming down", Haley said during a CBS interview on Sunday.

A team from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is in Syria to investigate the Douma incident and was expected to visit the town.

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on Sunday that further Western attacks on Syria would bring chaos to world affairs, while signs emerged that Moscow and Washington wanted to pull back from the worst crisis in their relations for years.

Nebenzia responded saying the environment is "not very conducive for any rapprochement" and "the political and risky military situation we are in now" must be sorted out first.
