In a separate interview, Haley told CBS News that new sanctions against Russian Federation, which has forces in Syria supporting the Assad regime, would be announced Monday that would "go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use".

The U.S. has previously expelled Russian diplomats and sanctioned Russia, a Syrian ally, for a suspected nerve-agent attack against a former spy in Britain and other actions. The U.S., he said, didn't want to oust Assad because he was a dictator - most U.S. allies in the region are led by dictators. "This lets them know that this not good behaviour".

On the "Fox News Sunday" program, Haley again slammed Russian Federation, accusing it of enabling the Syrian government to use chemical weapons without worrying about blowback at the United Nations.

President Trump backpedaled on a plan to issue additional sanctions against Russia Monday, directly contradicting an announcement by his United Nations ambassador, according to a report.

She said President Trump "has made it very clear that, when it comes to weapons of mass destruction, we have no tolerance for it". The legislation also called Putin out on human rights abuses.

"I don't say we've ever said it's OK", she said.

French President Emmanuel Macron said he had persuaded Trump to commit long-term to Syria.

That agreement was brokered by Moscow to avert retaliatory USA strikes in the wake of a sarin attack in the rebel-held Eastern Ghouta suburbs of Damascus on August 21, 2013 that reportedly killed more than 1,400 civilians.

The first and largest was the Barzah Research and Development Center which was considered to be the "heart" of the regime's chemical weapons program. The dictator has said the airstrikes against Syria came with a campaign of "lies" and misinformation in the United Nations. After the middle-of-the-night attack on Syria, some US television commentators poked fun at Trump's use of the "Mission accomplished" term, first used in 2003 by former President George W. Bush, who claimed prematurely and wrongly that the USA had successfully completed its military attack on Iraq. "With support from Russian Federation and Iran".

Russian news agencies reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin, in a phone call, told Iranian President Hassan Rouhani there would be chaos in global relations if there are further Western strikes on Syria. "We know that it is now up to Bashar al-Assad on whether he's going to use chemical weapons again".

"We felt like we had gone through every diplomatic measure of talking that we could".

"We of course know that our work in Syria is not done", she said.
