Trump defends 'mission accomplished' after strike on Syria

For residents of Syrian capital attack comes as a disorienting predawn barrage of light and sound Vladimir Putin Says Missile Strikes On Syria Will Make The Humanitarian Catastrophe Worse

She said: "We can not stand by and let Russian Federation trash every worldwide norm and allow use of chemical weapons to go unanswered". The Russian vetoes have been one of the main irritants in strained relations between Washington and Moscow, with Western diplomats accusing Russia of trying to protect the Assad government.

She said that it is "entirely up to Assad" whether the missile attack on Syria was a one-time response to the suspected chemical attack by Syrian forces a week ago that killed more than 40 people or part of a continuing allied military effort.

Russian leader Vladimir Putin reaffirmed the Kremlin's skepticism about the allies' Douma claim, saying Russian military experts had found no trace of the attack.

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.

Syrian Canadians expressed a range of reactions to the recent US -led air strikes against Syria's government, with some denouncing foreign aggression and others calling for even stronger action to end the conflict that has devastated the country.

"This very easily could happen in the United States if we're not smart, and if we're not conscious of what's happening", Haley said during an interview with "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace.

The weekend's airstrikes in Syria and the country's seven-year-long civil war were also expected to be discussed.

Assad didn't comment on calls by the US State Department to declare alleged Syrian stockpiles of chemical weapons during the meeting.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime was suspected of orchestrating a chlorine attack, which occurred on April 7.

Speaking to the BBC, Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said that Western powers had no plans for further missile strikes, though they would assess their options if Damascus used chemical weapons again.

Minnesota woman suspected of killing husband may have also killed FL woman
Aged about 35 years, she was on her way to a community health centre (CHC) when the crime took place. Police have arrested one of the accused, and are trying to trace the other two.

Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said there will be additional Russian sanctions.

In late March, Trump made a surprise announcement, saying the US would withdraw from Syria in the near future.

She also said she's not impressed with the reaction of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who expressed support for the strikes but seems reluctant to get directly involved.

He says people want to see justice after seeing the chemical attacks in Syria.

On Saturday, a draft resolution brought by Russian Federation before the UN Security Council condemning the air attacks failed to pass.

"This is not going to solve the Syrian conflict". But they have refrained from targeting Assad's government, apart from a volley of United States missiles past year.

"We need more serious steps, more pressure to go to the negotiating table to find a political solution", even if that includes military intervention, she said.

"We haven't said that we're going to bring them home in six months".

Washington described the strike 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.
