Haley has been one of the strongest voices accusing Russian Federation of enabling the Syrian government in its use of chemical weapons in the civil war, which is now in its seventh year.

The Trump administration said that it will impose new sanctions as soon as this week on Russian Federation for supporting the Syrian regime as it allegedly conducted a deadly chemical attack against its own people.

"All (the U.S.) has achieved by arming the mainly jihadist opposition is the increase of Assad's dependence on Iran and Russia", Glass said.

On Friday, the United States, Britain and France launched a series of air strikes on Syria aimed at wiping out Assad's chemical weapons capability.

But US officials have blamed Russian Federation for failing to rein in its Syrian ally, as the guarantor of a 2013 agreement to dismantle Syria's chemical weapons.

Piazza foresees limited sanctions on Russian Federation, and he said Assad is unlikely to change his behavior with pressure from President Vladimir Putin.

"First of all the president made it very clear we can not have chemical weapons usage anywhere, and we will continue to combat that in any way we need to protect American interests", Nikki Haley told CBS News' "Face the Nation".

'[The sanctions] will be going directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to [Syrian dictator Bashar al] Assad and chemical weapons use, ' Haley said. "This lets them know that this not good behaviour".

"Russian sanctions will be coming down".




The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, on Sunday announced the sanctions and President Donald Trump's commitment to staying involved in the Syria crisis, hours before French President Emmanuel Macron took credit for helping turn around Trump's plan to withdraw U.S. troops. The legislation also called Putin out on human rights abuses.

'Russia can complain all it wants about fake news, but no one is buying its lies and its cover-ups, ' she said of Syria's strongest ally. We were not looking to kill people.

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.

Piazza said further, limited airstrikes are possible in Syria.

On "Fox News Sunday", Haley said the term "mission accomplished" had different definitions in military and political circles.

The White House, mired in controversies, is not likely to pursue Assad too aggressively, Piazza said.

He said on Sunday that new Western air strikes in Syria would provoke "chaos" in global relations while speaking to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani by telephone. Putin said such actions will inevitably lead to "chaos" in global relations, according to a readout released by the Kremlin. "That doesn't mean that the Syrians can't re-create the chemical weapons to use again". They also called the attack an impediment to peace.

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

She said '[Our goal is] to see American troops come home, but we are not going to leave until we know we have accomplished those things'.
