Russia says US will want dialogue after Syria strikes

Ms Haley said the United States and its allies had given diplomacy "chance after chance" but Russian Federation had continued to veto UN resolutions.

In a UN Security Council session Saturday, American UN Ambassador Nikki Haley warned that the USA was "locked and loaded" to take aim at Syria again if Assad uses chemical weapons again.

The airstrike, which the US military says was precise and targeted, aimed to knock out the Syrian government's ability to use chemical weapons.

Meanwhile Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said Parliament should have been given a vote ahead of the strikes.

"We'll see how smart he is", Haley said. Mr Corbyn said in an interview with the BBC.

Western countries blamed Syria's government for a chemical attack on a rebel-held area earlier this month that killed more than 40 people.

The strike came almost a week after an apparent chemical attack took the lives of dozens of Syrian civilians in the rebel-held city of Douma.

Assad told his visitors that the U.S., Britain and France, which carried out the strikes, had waged a campaign of "lies and misinformation" against Russian Federation and Syria.

Sixers' Joel Embiid to remain sidelined for Game 2
The 76ers finished the regular season on a 16-game winning streak despite his absence. "But everything has been going well". However, should they play similar to how they played in Game 1, it will be very tough for the Heat to even win a game.

Syrian President Bashar al Assad said the strikes will only increase his government's determination to continue what he described as his 'war against terrorism'.

"From the point of view of the President, this was aggression and we share this position", Russia's TASS news agency quoted politician Sergei Zheleznyak as saying after the meeting with Mr Assad.

The Pentagon also says none of the missiles filed by the us and its allies was deflected by Syrian air defenses, rebutting claims by the Russian and Syrian governments. But late Saturday, senior administration officials called the evidence "incontrovertible". The operation targeted three Syrian chemical weapons facilities - one in the capital of Damascus and two others near Homs, near the border with northern Lebanon.

Mr Sablin also said Mr Assad accepted an invitation to visit the Siberian region of Khanty-Mansi in Russian Federation.

In a news conference that took place on Saturday morning Pentagon Chief officials said they can't speculate on what will happen next.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the three countries fired over 100 cruise and air-to-surface missiles, most of which were shot down by the Syrian air defense. Syria has rejected any role in the suspected gas attack. Moscow condemned the Western states for refusing to wait for OPCW's findings before attacking.

"Last night, the United States along with our British and French allies showed the world that the United States will not sit idly by while the Syrian regime uses chemical weapons to murder and maim its own people".
