Haley: No political solution in Syria with Assad in power

A day before the Khan Shekhoun attack, Haley indicated the United States had ditched the Obama administration's policy of removing Assad.

On March 25, a chlorine attack as launched in Hama, and a second chemical weapons attack of an undisclosed kind of gas was launched March 30, one senior US military official said. "Secondly, we don't see a peaceful Syria with Assad in there".

"So much has been put towards Israel and the Palestinian Authority and not enough has been put towards some of the other issues", Haley said at a press conference Monday, noting that she will focus an April 20 Security Council debate around issues such as Iran's support for terrorism, Syria, Hezbollah and Hamas. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had said Assad's long-term future would depend on the Syrian people.

"Once the ISIS threat has been reduced or eliminated, I think we can turn our attention directly to stabilising the situation in Syria", he told CBS television's "Face the Nation" in a clip released ahead of its air time. "And then finally move towards a political solution, because at the end of the day this is a complicated situation, there are no easy answers and a political solution is going to have to happen", she said in the interview with anchor Jake Tapper, to air on Sunday.

Tillerson and his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, spoke by phone on Saturday, according to a statement posted on the official Facebook page of the Russian Foreign Ministry, which said the United States had initiated the call.

"I have had conversations with He very much sees Russian Federation as a problem, and I think if you look at his actions-everybody wants to look at his words, look at his actions", Haley said.

As some members of the audience shouted at her remarks, Haley said "we have to express America's values". Thirdly, get the Iranian influence out.

Senior U.S. military officials said they are investigating whether the Russian military participated in any recent chemical weapons strikes against civilians in Syria, but said they do not yet have any information that suggests they did.

But Russia condemned the strikes against its ally in Damascus, and said it was suspending an agreement to minimize the risk of in-flight incidents between US and Russian aircraft operating over Syria.

Syrian Deputy UN Ambassador Mounzer Mounzer denied the country's use of chemical weapons, stating at the UN session that Syria "would never use such weapons in any of its operations against armed terrorist groups".

"If they [the administration] feel they need additional sanctions, or we can come up with something that seems to enjoy bipartisan support, I'd be open to it", McConnell said.

Tensions between Russian Federation and the U.S. have increased sharply since Trump ordered the missile strikes.

Haley alluded to the possibility of action from western leaders.
