'No appetite' for major TPP changes to accommodate US: Aus

Donald Trump has warned Russia that he will conduct airstrikes on Syria

Donald Trump has warned Russia that he will conduct airstrikes on Syria

The decision to strike, after days of deliberations, marked Trump's second order to attack Syria; he authorized a barrage of Tomahawk cruise missiles to hit a single Syrian airfield in April 2017 in retaliation for Assad's use of sarin gas against civilians.

Defense officials from the countries involved in the attack gave different accounts of how much warning was given to the Russians, Syria's powerful ally.

Priest said the new version excludes several critical provisions that would have benefited the US had it not withdrawn from the agreement previous year.

This aggression will only lead to inflaming tensions in the world and threatens worldwide security.

Nobody expects a coherent and consistent trade policy from President Donald Trump.

U.S. Defence Secretary Jim Mattis called the strikes a "one-time shot", although Trump raised the prospect of further strikes if Assad's government again used chemical weapons. "A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is now under way".

It also followed the purported use of chemical weapons there on April 7, which activists say killed over 40 people in the town and led to Saturday's airstrikes by the West.

Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe will meet Trump next week.

"NATO has consistently condemned Syria's continued use of chemical weapons as a clear breach of global norms and agreements".

"We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents", the USA president said in a televised address.

"I'm supportive of this targeted attack, carried out in partnership with our allies, on the source of these barbaric chemical weapons, but as I've said before, it needs to be part of a broader strategy". A huge fire could be seen from a distance to the east.

The speaker said Trump could use existing authorization, which was approved after the September 11, 2001, terror attacks. Rather he suggested the best way to ensure peace rested with a military so powerful that no sane nation or terrorist group would even think of messing with it. "They want a reduction in both tariff and non-tariff barriers". "But our efforts have been repeatedly thwarted" by Syria and Russian Federation, she said.

Officials said Trump was also frustrated that economic, diplomatic and political efforts aimed at convincing Assad that using chemical weapons was not in his interest had failed.

An AP reporter who went to the Center for Scientific Research on the northeastern edge of Damascus found the three-story building nearly completely destroyed and still smoking hours after it was hit.

But SANA said the strikes had caused only material damage at the scientific research centre in the Barzeh district of Damascus.

Russia's defence ministry said none of the strikes had hit areas near to Russia's air and naval bases. That meant airstrikes, possibly in tandem with France and other allies that have expressed outrage at the alleged Syrian chemical attack, could be launched within hours of a presidential decision.

Moscow's ambassador to Washington Anatoly Antonov warned that such actions will not be left without consequences and all responsibility for them rests with Washington, London and Paris.

The deputy head of Russia's foreign affairs committee said Vladimir Dzhabarov said: The situation is being analysed right now.

"The time for talk ended last night", Haley told the UN Security Council.

The world is united in its disgust for any use of chemical weapons, but especially against civilians.

Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the US did not coordinate targets with or notify the Russian government of the strikes, beyond normal airspace "de-confliction" communications.

Washington described its targets as a centre near Damascus for the research, development, production and testing of chemical and biological weapons, a chemical weapons storage site near the city of Homs, and another site near Homs that stored chemical weapons equipment and housed a command post.
