Iranian president calls Assad, affirms support

President Donald Trump's national security adviser is calling on Russian Federation to re-evaluate its support for Syrian President Bashar Assad, leaving open the possibility of additional USA military action against Syria.

On Sunday's "Meet The Press", Haley told host Chuck Todd, "In no way do we look at peace happening in that area with Iranian influence".

Trump has received widespread support for the military action, taken to punish Syrian President Bashar Assad's government after the US concluded he used chemical weapons against Syrian civilians. Secondly, we don't see a peaceful Syria with Assad in there.

Turkey has long said Syria has no future under the Bashar al-Assad regime, while Russian Federation has come to the Syrian regime's aid.

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, said "getting Assad out is not the only priority" and that countering Iran's influence in Syria was another.

Graham also argued Sunday that the United States is "relying too much" on the Kurds in that region to defeat ISIS and that additional USA troops would attract more regional fighters in that effort.

"By proxy Russian Federation is responsible for every civilian death last week", Fallon, whose government voiced support for U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to target the Syrian air base, wrote in the Sunday Times newspaper. "There's an agreement with him not to use chemical weapons".

But in the aftermath of the attack, Trump ordered the strike targeting the Shayrat air base in central Syria's Homs province with 59 Tomahawk missiles.

Moscow and Damascus claim that the toxic gas was released when strikes by government forces hit a rebel weapons depot, an assertion the United States and others reject.

While Johnson is no longer travelling to Russia, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will be visiting the country later this week - leading Lib Dem leader Tim Farron to suggest it was America who demanded the UK's diplomatic trip be scrapped.

While former U.S. president Obama chose not to intervene militarily following Assad's use of chemical weapons in 2013, his administration sought the elimination of all chemical weapons in the country.

A separate strike on Khan Shaikhoun, where the alleged chemical attack was carried out earlier week, killed a woman and wounded her son, according to SOHR.
