"Once the Isis threat has been reduced or eliminated, I think we can turn our attention directly to stabilising the situation in Syria", he said.

Haley on Friday told a special session of the UN Security Council that the United States was "prepared to do more" in Syria and that it was Washington's "vital national interest" to stop the use and spread of chemical weapons.

According to Bishop, the United States attack was a "proportionate response", to allegations that Assad used chemical weapons in the Syrian city of Idlib. After all, Russian Federation - a parter and supporter of Assad - made claims that regime bombs hit chemical weapon depots operated by Syrian rebels and even that the entire attack was staged.

"It is clear that Donald Trump does not have a clear or comprehensive strategy to hold Assad and his enablers in Russian Federation accountable", he said.

She told the news channel that removing Assad was not the US' only focus and "there's multiple priorities".

USA military presence in northern Syria is "illegal" and their aim to control area makes them "occupation" forces, the statement added.

The Khan Sheikhun strike prompted Washington to take its first direct military action against Assad's government, with missile strikes against a central air base on Friday morning.

Syria has been gripped by civil war since March 2011 with various terrorist groups, including Daesh (also known as ISIS or ISIL), now controlling parts of it.

The Senate's No. 2 Republican, John Cornyn of Texas, says Trump's move sends a strong message to rogue nations, and agrees that the USA needs a broader strategy.

I directed this action in order to degrade the Syrian military's ability to conduct further chemical weapons attacks and to dissuade the Syrian regime from using or proliferating chemical weapons, thereby promoting the stability of the region and averting a worsening of the region's current humanitarian catastrophe.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson will meet counterparts from leading nations in Italy for talks on Monday focusing on pressuring Moscow to pull out of Syria and ending Bashar al-Assad's grip on power.

"Russian intelligence may not be as good as ours, but it's good enough to know the Syrians had chemical weapons, were using chemical weapons".

"The intention was to take out the airfield and to remove the means of the delivery of chemical weapons".

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson blames Russia's inaction for helping fuel a deadly poison attack against Syrian civilians last week.
