Vladimir Putin predicts 'global chaos' if West strikes Syria again

"We all know our work in Syria is not done", she said.

"Everything that has strained the relationship is on Russia's side", she said, adding that the USA hopes for improved relations with Moscow, but that "we're not going to put up with bad behavior to get it".

Russian officials met with Assad after the US, France and Britain launched 105 missiles on Syria in retaliation for Assad's alleged chemical attack against his own people.

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.

Haley also repeated her comment Saturday, at an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council, that the USA remains "locked and loaded".

U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday defended his use of the phrase "Mission Accomplished" to describe the attack, tweeting that the strike was "perfectly carried out" and that "the only way the Fake News Media could demean was by my use of the term "Mission Accomplished".

United States envoy Nikki Haley said the strikes were "justified, legitimate and proportionate".

She also suggested that Russian Federation wasn't helpful in pursing global diplomatic responses to the chemical attack, saying the 105 missiles launched by the U.S., France and the United Kingdom at three Syrian sites connected to the making and storing of chemical weapons "didn't have to happen". "We have to be conscious of the fact that we can't allow even the smallest use of chemical weapons".

On the "Fox News Sunday" program, Haley again slammed Russian Federation, accusing it of enabling the Syrian government to use chemical weapons without worrying about blowback at the United Nations.

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

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

"I say to the foreign secretary, I say to the prime minister, where is the legal basis for this?" Russian Federation doesn't have "very good friends". The U.S. and its allies accused Assad's forces of using chemical weapons, a claim Syria and Russian Federation have rejected. In a USA military action a year ago in response to a sarin gas attack, the Pentagon said missiles took out almost 20 percent of the Syrian air force. Syria has always denied any chemical use and accused rebels of fabricating the attack. He said Syria's air defenses were ineffective and that numerous more than 40 surface-to-air missiles fired by the Syrians were launched after the allied attack was over.

She said too many governments are ignoring the atrocities in her home country and would like to see Canada take more of a leadership role in ending the conflict. The military said there were three targets: the Barzah chemical weapons research and development site in the Damascus area, a chemical weapons storage facility near Homs and a chemical weapons "bunker" a few miles from the second target.
