Haley fires back at White House: 'I don't get confused'
Washington, Paris and London have all described the strikes as a success, but Johnson acknowledged he did not know whether Assad could still possess chemical weapons and activity in Syria would be monitored on a daily basis.
The leaders "agreed that this illegal action is adversely impacting prospects for political settlement in Syria", a statement by the Kremlin said Sunday.
The strikes came after the Assad regime was accused of carrying out a chemical attack in Syria's Douma, which killed 78 civilians and injured hundreds of others.
She said that it is "entirely up to Assad" whether the missile attack on Syria was a one-time response to the suspected chemical attack by Syrian forces a week ago that killed more than 40 people or part of a continuing allied military effort.
"Tonight's announcement of United States targeted strikes in Syria sends a strong message to the Assad regime that their brutal and horrific chemical attacks against their own people will not be tolerated".
In his national address an hour prior to the Pentagon press conference, President Trump condemned Russian Federation and Iran for backing the Assad regime and demanded the two nations withdraw their support for Syria's "barbarism and brutality".
In a private meeting with Trump and national security officials earlier in the week, Haley was a leading voice pushing for a robust military response to the chemical weapons attack on humanitarian grounds, the person said.
After the failure of the Russian motion, the US, UK and France circulated a new draft resolution to UN Security Council members, calling for an independent investigation into Syria's alleged use of chemical weapons, AFP news agency reported. Saudi Arabia said it would take part in the USA coalition if asked. "There is no proposal on the table at the moment for further attacks because so far thank heavens the Assad regime have not been so foolish as to launch another chemical weapons attack", he told the BBC's Andrew Marr show.
British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told the BBC the primary objective of the attack was to "say no to the use of barbaric chemical weapons".
President Donald Trump has warned Syria's government the United States is "locked and loaded" to strike again if it carries out new chemical attacks.
Haley said the U.S. would not pull its troops out of Syria until its goals were accomplished.
The global inspectors arrived in Syria over the weekend to visit the site of a suspected gas attack in Douma, near the capital Damascus, but had not gained access until now.
Russian Federation and Syria also clashed with the three Western allies over the legality of the airstrikes and responsibility for the Security Council's paralysis. "I say to the foreign secretary, I say to the prime minister, where is the legal basis for this?" It was not clear when the visit would occur. Unless Russian leader Vladimir Putin retaliates, which Smith says is unlikely at this point, he doesn't expect prices to move up again.

The mechanism would look at cases where the OPCW fact-finding mission has established chemical weapons were used or likely used. She said Syrian officials have been searching evacuees from Douma to ensure samples are not smuggled out.
