Trump officials say no new United States focus on ousting Syria's Assad

Trump Ordered Attack on Syrian Airfield

"You're going to continue to see the United States act when we need to act".

"It's very hard to understand how a political solution could result from the continuation of the Assad regime", McMaster said on "Fox News Sunday".

"We are not saying that we are the ones who are going to effect that change".

But the cancellation of tomorrow's meeting, which came after discussions with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, led to him being criticised as "Washington's poodle", an attack dismissed by the Foreign Office.

The official said that the United States hadn't been able to determine whether Syria or Russian Federation was operating the drone, but confirmed on Monday it was Russian Federation. Tillerson has slammed Moscow for either failing or neglecting to enforce that agreement.

"Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women and children", Trump said. Washington hurried to accuse the Syrian government for the suspected chemical attack.

He said he would call on Russian Federation "to fulfill the obligation it made to the worldwide community when it agreed to be the guarantor of the elimination of the chemical weapons".

Saudi Arabia, one of the most vehement opponents of Assad, said the missile barrage was the right response to "the crimes of this regime to its people in light of the failure of the global community to stop it".

U.S. officials blame Moscow for propping up Syrian President Bashar Assad. "We are prepared to do more but we hope that will not be necessary".

"This is a great opportunity for the Russian leadership to reevaluate what they are doing", he said.

Trump talks tough on North Korea, says Kim 'gotta behave'
One US official said the prospective shoot-down strategy would be aimed at occurring after a nuclear test, reports The Guardian . But we're going to redouble our efforts to bring diplomatic and economic pressure to bear on North Korea .

In a phone conversation, the two senior officials described the USA attacks as a "support" for terrorists.

"Do they want it to be a relationship of competition and potential conflict?"

"The first air raid conducted by the Syrian army was at 11:30 am (local time) on that day (Tuesday) and it attacked an arms depot belonging to Al-Nusra Front that contained chemical weapons", Muallem said.

Trump explained his decision Saturday in a letter to Congress, in which he said the decision to carry out the strikes was in America's "vital national security and foreign policy interests".

McCain - who vocally supported the USA military response to the attack - added that the White House must put forward a detailed Syria strategy.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that the strike does not signal a new US offensive in Syria, where there are already almost 1,000 USA troops focused on the fight against ISIS.

On Friday, senior United States military officials were looking more closely at possible Russian involvement in the poison attack.

Russian Federation is the Syrian government's main ally, and helped facilitate a 2013 agreement to destroy Syria's chemical arsenal.

Use of chlorine weapons is prohibited under the global chemical weapons convention, but production of chlorine is not. "But we have got to have a strategy and a plan to follow through".
