Trump Doubles Down on 'Mission Accomplished'

"We will work calmly, methodically and professionally, using all opportunities to remove the situation from its current extremely unsafe political peak". She does, however, call for Trump to present an "updated, clear strategy that carefully considers the next appropriate military and diplomatic steps while avoiding an extended military conflict".

"In the United States administration there are specific people who it is possible to talk with", said Ermakov, head of the ministry's department for non-proliferation and arms control.

Speaking to Russian officials at a meeting in Damascus on Sunday, Assad praised Russian weapons for countering the more than 100 missiles fired by Western allies.

Numerous missiles fired by the US, British and French forces early on Saturday destroyed an alleged chemical weapons research centre north of Damascus.

"If the previous attack was a slap on the wrist, this is perhaps a slap on the face but nothing that destabilizes the Assad regime in any fundamental way", said Ayham Kamel, head of Middle East and North Africa research at Eurasia Group.

"We of course know that our work in Syria is not done", she said.

Had they studied the footage of victims that showed symptoms consistent, some say, with nerve agents? "And it was not about regime change", British Prime Minister Theresa May apparently felt the need to emphasize. "This is not about trying to turn the tide of the conflict in Syria", he told the BBC, adding that Russian Federation was the only country able to pressure Assad to negotiate an end to the conflict.

The remark came in a parenthical phrase during an interview on Fox News Sunday, as Haley blamed Russian Federation for strains in its relationship with the United States.

Though Heitkamp said, "Assad must be held accountable for his egregious human rights violations and the gassing of his own people - a crime against worldwide law and humanity as well as an act of unspeakable cowardice", she never directly says that she backs the strikes.

Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham have both criticized Trump's Syria strike as risky, saying they're at odds with his earlier pledges to refrain from interventions. The Russia military claimed that Syria's air defenses shot down some of the missiles launched by Western forces.

The U.S., France and the United Kingdom targeted chemical weapons sites in Syria early Saturday.

"It's not moving near as fast as any of us want it to move, but this is a political process that needs to happen", she said. Angus King (I-Maine) said on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper. Corbyn said in an interview with the BBC. "From the point of view of the president, this was aggression and we share this position", Russia's TASS news agency quoted lawmaker Sergei Zheleznyak as saying after the meeting with Assad in the Syrian capital Damascus.

The U.S. already bears a "heavy responsibility for the bloody outrage" in Yugoslavia, Libya and Iraq, he said.

"Assad knew that Russian Federation had its back, Assad knew that Russian Federation would cover for them at the United Nations, and Assad got reckless, and he used it in a way that was far more aggressive", Haley said on "Fox News Sunday". They're not resettled refugees; both have become US citizens, but Kalil says many of their relatives still live in Syria.

But until this weekend, they have refrained from targeting Assad's government, apart from a volley of U.S. missiles a year ago.

Most Gulf stock markets rose on Sunday, supported by firm oil prices and relief that the weekend's military attack on Syria was relatively limited in scope and there was no immediate retaliation.
