Haley: US to Impose New Sanctions on Russia Over Syria

OCT. 7 2016 Haley: US to Impose New Sanctions on Russia Over Syria
Patty Aguilar | 16 April, 2018, 18:31

However, Trump "seemed to believe that other individual countries would largely equal the United States, was furious that his administration was being portrayed in the media as taking by far the toughest stance on Russian Federation", while he had said that Washington would not take the lead and would only match the number of expulsions.

Yesterday, the USA ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, warned a wave of new sanctions were on the way with the aim of punishing Russian Federation for its backing of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad.

"Everyone is going to feel it at this point", Ms Haley said, warning of consequences for Assad's foreign allies.

"You will see that Russian sanctions will be coming down", she said. 'The fact he was making this more normal and that Russian Federation was covering this up, all that has got to stop'.

Trump tweeted "Mission Accomplished" on Saturday after U.S., French and British warplanes and ships launched more than 100 missiles almost unopposed by Syrian air defenses. "[Treasury Secretary Steven] Mnuchin will be announcing those on Monday if he hasn't already and they will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use".

Haley made clear the United States won't be pulling troops out of Syria right away, saying U.S. involvement there 'is not done'.

The sanctions follow US -led airstrikes against Syria's chemical weapons capability and President Trump's promise that Assad and his allies, namely Moscow, would pay a "big price" for enabling the use of chemical weapons.

"We're not going to leave until we know we've accomplished those things", she said. Russian Federation claims that 71 of 103 missiles fired were shot down, although the Pentagon says that is not true.

Andhra Pradesh to observe bandh over special status today
Reacting to the shutdown call, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu said bandhs were not welcome as they hamper development. He appealed to the people of Andhra Pradesh to give the TDP all 25 MP seats to play a crucial role at the Centre.

The White House countered the Post's story, with spokesman Raj Shah telling the paper, "while we would like to work with Russian Federation, when faced with their malign activities on the worldwide stage, the president will hold them accountable". This was playing with fire after Russia - Syria's strongest ally - had warned that a missile attack would be met with force by Moscow, raising fears of a straight fight between the USA and Russia.

Gold and oil traded slightly lower as markets opened for the first time since Western powers launched a missile attack on Syria, but equities are unlikely to experience big losses unless the West strikes again or Russian Federation retaliates.

The Washington Post reported that Trump explained to administration officials that the USA would "match" the number of expulsions doled out by European allies in the wake of a chemical attack on an ex-Russian spy living in the United Kingdom.

That did not mean military strikes would continue. The Joint Chiefs chairman confirmed that normal deconflicting lines were used.

"The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers".

Frank Benzimra, head of global markets for Asia Pacific at Societe Generale Corporate and Investment Banking, also said stocks were set to plunge only in case of new strikes by Western powers.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent.

"Sentiment, still, will be tempered awaiting the Kremlin's response to the USA -led strike in Syria, to US sanctions of last week and potential new sanctions".
