Rouhani, Putin Slam US Aggression on Syria

Rouhani, Putin Slam US Aggression on Syria

Talking with ABC's This Week host George Stephanopoulos, the official, who is set to visit Moscow April 11-12, said he would "call upon Foreign Minister Lavrov and the Russian government to fulfill the obligation it made to the worldwide community when it agreed to be the guarantor of the elimination of chemical weapons".

"We recently welcomed the USA strike on the Assad regime".

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley [profile] told CNN in an interview set to air Sunday that removing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad [Al Jazeera profile] from power in Syria is one of the top priorities of Donald Trump's administration.

When asked about Washington's anti-Russia sanctions, the US Secretary of State said "there is no reason to be lifting sanctions". "From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from whoever it is and America knows our ability to respond well", officials from Russia, Iran and pro-Assad militias said in a statement on Sunday.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC doesn't think so.

In a speech on Sunday, Rouhani also criticised US -allied Gulf Arab states for endorsing the USA missile strike.

"I'm a strong supporter that the US should take action to protect humanitarian causes like the ban on use of chemical weapons".

"So they now have to answer for this", she said.

"I have to say, you used the initials, but I think that's a first for 'Meet The Press, ' Senator Graham", host Chuck Todd said.

Speaking on "Fox News Sunday", McMaster said the United States would take further action in Syria if necessary. "Vladimir Putin and Hasan Rouhani spoke in favor of an objective, unbiased investigation of all the circumstances of the chemical weapons incident on April 4 in the Syrian province of Idlib".

The Conservative minister has been criticised for pulling out of planned talks with Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov following discussions with the US.

Turkey's foreign minister said Sunday that Turkey has no obligation to take a side in any dispute between the US and Russian Federation.

The possession and use of chemical weapons is unacceptable, and many nations have agreed to bind themselves to the provisions of the Chemical Weapons Convention calling for their destruction.

Syrian army forces had been losing ground across the country until Russian Federation intervened militarily in September 2015, propping up Mr Assad and protecting its own interests in the region.

But the missile strike had a second message, Haley said.

President Bashar al-Assad's office calls the USA missile strike on an airbase in central Syria on Friday "foolish and irresponsible".
