Trump officials say no new United States focus on ousting Syria's Assad

Trump officials say no new United States focus on ousting Syria's Assad”

But he backed calls for an independent inquiry into a suspected chemical weapons attack on a rebel-held town in northwestern Syria on Tuesday that Trump blamed on the Damascus regime.

"[Russian President Vladimir Putin] views the USA strikes on Syria as aggression against a sovereign state in violation of the norms of worldwide law and on a made-up pretext.", said Dmitry Peskov, a Kremlin spokesman, according to the Independent.

When Wallace asked what the United States will do if Russia defends its interests in Syria, mentioning Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev's comments Friday that the US missile strike in Syria put the two countries "on the verge of a military clash", McMaster stood firm on his position that Russia is "part of the problem" and should become "part of the solution".

Residents of the Syrian town devastated by a chemical-weapons attack earlier this week said that warplanes had returned to bomb them Saturday as Turkey described a retaliatory US assault as "cosmetic" unless President Bashar al-Assad is removed from power.

April. 9 (ANI): Responding to Russia's claim that the USA missile strike on a Syrian airbase wasn't very effective, President Donald Trump has explained as to why the runways were not attacked and remain undamaged.

President Donald Trump ordered the strike in response to a chemical weapons attack against civilians earlier in the week, which US officials say was carried out by the Assad government.

"The failure related to the recent strike and the recent bad chemical weapons attack in large measure is a failure on Russia's part to achieve its commitment to the global community", Tillerson said in an interview aired on ABC on Sunday. Syria's governmental SANA news agency said six people died, but later reported the deaths of nine civilians. He also said the top US priority in the region hasn't changed and remained the defeat of Islamic State militants.

"Once the ISIS threat has been reduced or eliminated, I think we can turn our attention directly to stabilising the situation in Syria", he told CBS television's "Face the Nation" in a clip released ahead of its air time.

Russian Federation has warned that the USA missile strikes could have serious consequences for the region.

Tehran is Syrian President Bashar Assad's main regional ally and has provided military and economic support for his fight against rebel groups and Islamic State militants.

Russia noted that Johnson's plan to "discuss the Russian support for the Assad regime" with G7 countries shows a "fundamental misunderstanding or ignorance of what is happening in Syria, Russia's efforts to settle this crisis, and the objective of diplomacy in general". The Syrian Army has no chemical weapons. "Secondly, we don't see a peaceful Syria with Assad in there".

Russian minister for foreign affairs Sergei Lavrov and USA secretary of state Rex Tillerson spoke by phone on Saturday about the situation in Syria after U.S. strikes on a Syrian air base, the Russian foreign ministry has said in a statement.
