U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on Sunday praised President Donald Trump's actions in Syria but reiterated his stance that troops on the ground will be needed to stop Bashar al-Assad and the Islamic State.

The strikes resulted in the death of a woman, and three other people were reportedly wounded in Saturday's attack, two activists in Khan Sheikhoun said. "We had leaders in Congress who questioned that evidence that was presented and voted against that war because they were not convinced by the administration then saying that they had the proof necessary to launch this war".

However, Haley defended the action, saying "there are times when states are compelled to take their own action".

As US secretary of state Rex Tillerson makes the Trump administration's first official trip this week to Russia, Mr McMaster said Russia will have to decide whether it wants to continue backing a "murderous regime".

Russian Federation and Iran have provided Mr Assad with critical military support in his war against rebel groups fighting to topple him.

Putin said on Tuesday Russia would be urgently asking the global chemical weapons watchdog - the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons - to investigate the incident.

Haley said "getting Assad out is not the only priority" and that countering Iran's influence in Syria was another.

Writing in The Sunday Times, Sir Michael added that Russian Federation needed to take action to make sure the "needless suffering" of Syrian civilians can be brought to an end.

Much will obviously depend on how U.S. policy develops in Syria.

Boris Johnson has pulled out of a visit to Moscow in the wake of the Syrian chemical weapons attack. "Assad signed the chemical weapons treaty ban".

"It was a very deliberate, very proportional, and very targeted strike undertaken in response to the chemical weapons attack".

Britain's defence secretary, Michael Fallon, on Sunday criticised Russia's support of Assad, describing the chemical attack as a war crime that happened "on their watch".

It was around this time previous year that Sen.

McMaster continued, insinuating that he believed Russian Federation had to be knowledgeable of Syria's plan to launch a chemical attack.

"Developments in Syria have changed the situation fundamentally", he said.

That's according to Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi.
