What next in the aftermath of USA strikes on Syria?

But he suggested that Trump was seeking a global political response for regime change from US allies as well as Russian Federation, which he said needed to reevaluate its support of Syria.

"Ambassador Haley just said on your program, 'You'll never end the war with Assad in power, '" Graham said. "Right now I think everyone in the world [sees] Russian Federation as part of the problem".

"Well, I think what the president did was an excellent first step, and it was a reversal of the last eight years", McCain said.

Pin that infamous inaction on former President Barack Obama, who drew a "red line" that he said Assad could not cross - then regrettably gave Assad a pass. Obama called off threatened air strikes when he struck a deal with Russian Federation, an ally of Assad, to remove Assad's stockpiles of chemical weapons.

"We're calling (Russia and Iran) out", Haley told "State of the Union" anchor Jake Tapper.

"The entire administration was in agreement that this was something that had to be done", Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said on NBC's "Meet the Press". "If you look at his actions, if you look at the situation, it's going to be hard to see a government that's peaceful and stable with Assad".

He said the United States expected Russian Federation to take a tougher stance against Syria by rethinking its alliance with Assad because "every time one of these horrific attacks occurs, it draws Russian Federation closer into some level of responsibility".

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson also suggested that Assad should be removed, but that this should be achieved in the context of a political transition.

"Getting Assad out is not the only priority", she continued. Once ISIS is defeated, the United States could turn its attention to trying to help bring about a "political process" that could bring about stability in Syria, he said.

It also stated that Pyongyang's ballistic missile launches are "illegal" and that the country has been developing nuclear weapons. Asked what plan of action he would present to Trump if forced to pick one, he responded: "I would resign first".

A United States defence official also clarified that the strikes conducted by the nation were not meant to damage runways or fully disable the Syria base.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson was branded a USA "poodle" after abandoning a visit to the Russian capital at the last minute, in order to clear the way for Mr Tillerson's Moscow trip.

The suspected chemical attack on Khan Sheikhoun on Wednesday left 89 people dead.

The site was targeted because USA intelligence indicated Syrian military forces operating from the airfield were responsible for the attack in southern Idlib Province on Tuesday.

Barazi did not offer further details, and the U.S. Defense Department referred questions about conditions at the air base to the Damascus government.

Moscow has sought to deflect blame from its long-time ally al-Assad over the incident and says Syrian jets struck a rebel arms depot where "toxic substances" were being put inside bombs.

Rouhani added the USA attack was in line with policy to strengthen the terrorists.

"We've seen the evidence on Assad, we know exactly what happened", Haley said.

However, the Russian Defense Ministry insisted that the USA authorities have presented "no evidence whatsoever" to back up their accusations against Assad's government.
