Syria's Assad in a 'good mood,' scorns United States weaponry after airstrikes

16 April 2018

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

Behind closed doors, Trump pushed for a more aggressive response than the one taken a year ago, wanting options that would involve attacks on targets in Syria associated with Russian Federation and Iran, officials said.

"Last night, we obliterated the major research facility that it used to assemble weapons of mass murder", Haley told an emergency UN Security Council meeting on Syria here.

Another administration official laid out evidence on Saturday for the United States' conclusion that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government was behind the chemical weapons attack; that included eyewitness accounts of Syrian government helicopters circling the site of the attack on April 7 and high-resolution photos that "clearly" documented asphyxiation and foaming at the mouth. She called for a renewed diplomatic effort to strengthen the global laws against the use of such weapons.

The US is "locked and loaded" if Syria uses chemical weapons again, America's United Nations envoy Nikki Haley said today.

Earlier Saturday, Pence held off from expressing a final judgment about whether sarin gas was deployed in the chemical weapons attack.

Some analysts described the British military action as "largely symbolic" - out of the 120 missiles that were fired against three targets in Syria, only four came from the UK.

President Trump announced the attacks late Friday as explosions were reported over Damascus, the Syrian capital.

After the vote, Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the meeting confirmed that the USA and its allies "continue to put worldwide politics and diplomacy in the realm of myth-making - myths invented in London, Paris and Washington".

He also claimed the military action made the humanitarian catastrophe worse and hurt civilians.

Later Sunday, Haley told CBS' "Face the Nation " that the US will be imposing more economic sanctions on Russian Federation for its support of Assad and his apparent use of chemical weapons. "The alleged use of chemical weapons, if true, is deplorable", Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said in response to queries. "We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents", Mr Trump said in a televised address as the attacks were being carried out.

Haley noted that Russian Federation has vetoed six resolutions in the U.N. Security Council regarding chemical weapons.
