US to maintain Syria presence until goals accomplished: Haley

Britain France say they joined strikes on Syria

"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, '" Haley said at emergency Security Council talks.

That bid however failed, with only China and Bolivia voting alongside Russian Federation to condemn the air strikes.

However, he said it was still a "positive step", taken by three allied countries. Four countries abstained - Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Equatorial Guinea and Peru. The missile strike followed a week of chemical attacks that took the lives of dozens of civilians in the rebel-controlled town of Douma that has led the opposition to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The U.S., U.K., and France launched airstrikes on the Assad regime's alleged chemical weapons facilities in Syria earlier on Saturday.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley told the council "there is clear information demonstrating Assad's culpability".

Nikki Hayley, the USA envoy to the United Nations, told the Security Council its forces were ready, "locked and loaded", to mount further strikes if there were signs Mr Assad was again planning to use chemical weapons.

The singer established the program in 2017 to mark the one-year anniversary of her 2016 visual album, " Lemonade ". All finalists and winners will be selected by the universities and winners will be announced some time this summer.

"When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line".

U.S. Representative Peter Roskam, a Republican, praised Trump's action saying in a statement, "Assad must pay a price for ruthlessly slaughtering his own citizens with chemical weapons".

Haley said the U.S. successfully hit the heart of Syria's chemical weapons enterprise, and because of these actions, it is confident that it has crippled Syria's chemical weapons programme.

U.S. President Donald Trump again praised the decision to carry out the air strike in a tweet on Sunday, reiterating his claim that the missiles had delivered on their intended objective. "If we continue on this path, we will soon reach the diplomacy of the absurd".

Pope Francis spoke of this week's air strike after his traditional Sunday blessing, saying he is "deeply disturbed" by the global community's failure to come up with a common response to the crises in Syria and other parts of the world.

He said: "So far, thank heavens, the Assad regime has not been so foolish to launch another chemical weapons attack", adding that Britain and its allies "would study what the options were" in the event of another attack.

And, Syrians danced in the street as a show of defiance against the United States.

"You will see that Russian sanctions will be coming down", she said.

France, the United States and Britain planned 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 conflict, French U.N. Ambassador Francois Delattre told the council on Saturday.

Saeed Saeed, head of the Institution for the Development of Pharmaceutical and Chemical Industries, said the center was previously used by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) but now works on pharmaceutical products. That could make it easier for chemical weapons inspectors, who arrived in Damascus Saturday, to get to the site of the purported April 7 chemical attack.

Mr Nebenzia responded saying the environment was "not very conducive for any rapprochement" and "the political and risky military situation we are in now" must be sorted out first.

"Where is the legal basis for this?" he said.
