Chemical attack could happen in USA 'if we're not smart': Nikki Haley

France, the United States and Britain plan to put forward a new draft resolution aimed at dismantling Syria's chemical weapons program, wiping out terrorism, demanding a ceasefire across Syria and finding a political solution to the war, French UN Ambassador Francois Delattre told the council on Saturday.

"You will see that Russian sanctions will be coming down", Haley said. "And they will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use". And so I think everyone is going to feel it at this point.

A group of Russian politicians has met with Syrian President Bashar Assad, whose mood they describe as good a day after Western airstrikes.

Haley has been one of the strongest voices accusing Russian Federation of enabling the Syrian government in its use of chemical weapons in the civil war that is now in its seventh year. Russian Federation has long backed the Assad regime and has repeatedly vetoed UN Security Council resolutions concerning chemical weapons. He said the message must demonstrate that the United States and its allies have the will and capability to continue imposing those costs, and that Iran and Russian Federation will ultimately be unsuccessful in protecting Assad from our punitive response. But the rollout of new sanctions is usually closely guarded, in part to prevent people subjected to them from quickly moving their money around. There was no immediate comment from the Treasury Department.

U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley announced on Sunday that the USA will imminently impose a new rounds of sanctions on Russian Federation.

Chelsea claim first win from 2-0 down since 2002
Chelsea were lacklustre in the first half and they couldn't even respond when Southampton took the lead in the 21st minute. The visitors were level, four minutes after grabbing their first goal, as Hazard fired home from inside the box.

Ireland will not condemn the air strikes and Irish sources said there was no division within the European Union about the need to deter chemical attacks and that the Assad regime was involved in wholesale slaughter of its own people.

Russian and Iranian military help over the past three years has allowed Assad to crush the rebel threat to topple him.The US, Britain and France have all participated in the Syrian conflict for years, arming rebels, bombing Islamic State fighters and deploying troops to fight the militants.

She said: "I spoke to the president this morning and he said, "if the Syrian regime uses this poisonous gas again, the United States is locked and loaded". As soon as Trump tweeted [his threat] that missiles will fly over to Syria, Prime Minister May responded instantly (we can imagine her clapping her hands and calling her Defence Secretary with relief ) that the British forces were ready to rain Syria with missiles once the Americans took the lead.

London and Washington have played down the prospect of further military action against Syria but Nikki Haley, the United States ambassador to the United Nations, said there would be fresh sanctions against Russian companies which have helped the Assad regime's chemical weapons programme.

The White House says the leaders agreed the airstrikes in Syria "were successful and necessary to deter" the future use of chemical weapons. Carol Morello wrote this story.
