A fact-finding team from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) arrived in Syria on Saturday, the same day the US, UK and France carried out airstrikes against Syrian government targets in response to the April 7 attack in Douma. President Trump was responding to a chemical weapons attack earlier this month that killed dozens of Syrians.

"You will see that Russian sanctions will be coming down", Haley said. They're willing to endure the pressure that is being put on American allies, like Jordan, Iraq and Turkey, because of refugees from Syria. "They are crimes of a monster instead".

KING: All right. So President Trump said these strikes were meant to discourage the Syrian regime from using chemical weapons again.

Syria and its ally Russia deny any chemical attack took place, and Russian officials went even further, accusing Britain of staging a "fake" chemical attack.

British medical and scientific experts analyzed reports, images and video footage from the incident and concluded the victims were exposed to a toxic chemical, she said. He is expected to insist on France's "legitimacy" to launch airstrikes on Syria. Government forces and Russian troops have been deployed in Douma, which is now controlled by the Syrian government. He was reportedly furious when he discovered Germany and France were expelling only a handful of Russians, and was surprised that the USA was matching the total European Union figure.

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 denies the accusations. On Monday, he told the BBC's Hardtalk show that he guaranteed there had been no Russian tampering.

SCHAKE: I personally think it is a mistake, but I understand that they are trying not to have us take over the outcome of the Syrian civil war.


The action was in response to a recent deadly attack in the town of Douma. "Russia and Syria must cooperate". He said government officials met with the delegation, which has been in Damascus for three days, a number of times to discuss cooperation.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told the BBC the primary objective of the attack was to "say no to the use of barbaric chemical weapons".

The OPCW team dispatched to Syria to investigate does not have a mandate to assign blame.

"The overwhelming majority of people in this country oppose this action just as they have opposed the series of wars of the last seventeen years". Britain says there's proof Syria is responsible, not the rebels because a government helicopter delivered the chemicals inside a barrel bomb.

The leader of Hezbollah, the Lebonon-based, Iranian-backed militant group, said the strikes have strained worldwide relations and could totally "torpedo" United Nations peace talks in Geneva.

On Monday, Syrian and Russian authorities prevented investigators from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) from going to the scene, the head of the OPCW said, blocking global efforts to establish what happened and who was to blame. He spoke in an interview with Turkey's NTV television on Monday.

"Good souls will not be humiliated", Assad tweeted, while hundreds of Syrians gathered in Damascus, the capital, where they flashed victory signs and waved flags in scenes of defiance after the early morning barrage.
