  • US troops to stay in Syria until goals achieved- Nikki Haley
  • The US will not pull its troops out of
    Syria until Washington's goals are
    accomplished, Nikki Haley, the US
    ambassador to the UN said.
    According to Haley, the three aims for
    the US are ensuring chemical weapons
    are not used in any way that poses a
    risk to US interests; Islamic State of
    Iraq and the Levant (ISIL , also known
    as ISIS) is defeated; and there is a
    good vantage point to watch what Iran is doing. "[It is our goal] to see American troops come
    home, but we
    are not going to
    leave until we
    know we have accomplished those
    things," Haley said on Fox News on
    Sunday.

    In a separate interview, Haley said
    that the US was preparing new
    sanctions on Russia over its continued support of Syrian President Bashar-al Assad .

    The sanctions would be announced by
    US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin
    on Monday, Haley said on CBS.
    "They will go directly to any sort of
    companies that were dealing with
    equipment related to Assad and
    chemical weapons use," she said.
    Haley also ruled out any one-on-one
    talks between President Assad and the
    US over the Syrian crisis .
    She said Syria had so far refused to
    take part in multilateral negotiations
    as part of a political process facilitated by the UN, adding that Syria was not "worthy" of direct talks with Washington. Tense relations,The relations between Moscow and Washington are tense after the US, UK and France carried out a wave
    of strikes on the alleged chemical
    facilities of Assad's government early on Saturday.

    Russia has been the foremost
    supporter of the Assad government
    since the Syrian war began more than seven years ago. The attack came a week after a suspected
    deadly chemical attack on the
    rebel-held Damascus suburb of Douma. The White Helmets, a local civil defence agency, accused the Assad government of carrying out the gas attack, which is believed to have killed 85 civilians, including children, and injured hundreds of others. The US and allies say they have evidence that the attack was carried out by Assad's forces. In response, Russia pledged to retaliate for what it described as a "fabricated" chemical gas attack.
