USA to announce more sanctions against Russian Federation

President Donald Trump addresses the nation about the U.S.-led airstrikes in Syria

Russian President Vladimir Putin stated on Saturday that the strikes had been carried out in violation of norms and principles of the global law.

On Sunday Nikki Haley, the United States ambassador at the United Nations, announced in an interview with CBS that the U.S.is imposing sanctions against Russian companies that have anything to do with Syrian president Assad and chemical weapons in Syria.

The OPCW inspectors will not assign blame for attacks.

Iran and Russian Federation should not allow the "fire of a new tension" to flare up in the region, Rouhani said, adding that the airstrikes were an "invasion" aimed at "emboldening defeated terrorists", IRNA reported.

President Donald Trump was furious last month when the US announced it would expel 60 Russian diplomats, far less than its Europe allies, although he instructed his aides to "match their numbers" because he didn't want his administration to be perceived as taking the toughest stance on Moscow, the Washington Post reports.

He also offered to play the role of intermediary between the United States and Russian Federation, whose relationship has been on edge over the chemical weapons attack and amid allegations that Russian Federation tried to interfere in the USA 2016 presidential election.

Then Khris Middleton forced overtime with an absurd 3-pointer at the buzzer that barely got off his fingertips in time. He got off to a great start , and it continued all game long, as he finished with 27 points and 10 rebounds.

Asked about Trump's "Mission Accomplished" assertion, White said it pointed to the successful targeting of three Syrian chemical weapons sites.

The Netherlands sees no sense in implementing more sanctions against Russian Federation for its role in the situation in Syria, Minister Stef Blok of Foreign Affairs said.

According to the lawmaker, Russian Federation is ready for a new round of sanctions, although there is nothing good in this situation.

The Syrian leadership has denied any involvement in the attack, and invited the experts from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to investigate into the reports. His comments at the closed-door meeting were obtained by Reuters. This was playing with fire after Russia - Syria's strongest ally - had warned that a missile attack would be met with force by Moscow, raising fears of a straight fight between the USA and Russia.

But the three countries said the strikes were limited to Syria's chemical weapons capabilities and not aimed at toppling Assad or intervening in the civil war.

Oil prices fell, however, as geopolitical tensions were somewhat eased by signs that there would be no significant retaliation in response to a US-led air strike on Syria over the weekend.

The enraged gatecrasher then proceeded to grab the woman by the throat and "would not release his grip". At the party, Bieber was walking by when a man walked into the party, saw a woman and went ballistic.

The leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah said Sunday that Western strikes on Syria had failed to achieve anything, including terrorizing the army, helping insurgents or serving the interests of Israel.

Moscow brokered that agreement to forestall US strikes in retaliation for an August 2013 chemical-weapons attack in a Damascus suburb that killed hundreds.

'We're not going to leave until we know we've accomplished those things, ' she said.

The U.N. Security Council overwhelmingly rejected a Russian resolution calling for condemnation of "aggression" by the United States, United Kingdom and France against Syria on Saturday, a vote reflecting support for the allied airstrikes on Syrian chemical sites.

"Ten days ago President Trump wanted the United States of America to withdraw from Syria".
