Trump Won't Impose the Russia Sanctions His Administration Announced Yesterday

17 Avril 2018

On Fox News Sunday, Haley stated that the Russian sanctions would occur on Monday.

After Britain and France joined the United States in missile salvoes meant to knock out Syrian chemical arms facilities, European Union foreign ministers eyed steps to deepen the isolation of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Haley also said the USA won't be pulling troops out of Syria right away, saying their involvement there "is not done".

The US, France and the United Kingdom responded to the suspected attack by launching missiles on Saturday that they said targeted Syrian chemical weapons production facilities.

Haley says Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will be making the announcement by Monday and it will affect companies that are "dealing with equipment related to Assad and any chemical weapons use".

In a combined operation, the US, Britain and France on Saturday launched military strikes against Bashar al-Assad's Syrian regime, almost a week after a suspected chemical attack outside the capital Damascus left over 40 people dead.

"He never thought he would get out in 48 hours", she said.

"You will see that Russian sanctions will be coming down", Haley said.

But he said neither Trump nor the American people appear to have an appetite for a more involved military campaign in Syria.

Haley spoke two days after the United States, France and Britain struck at three facilities that the administration called the "heart" of Syria's chemical-weapons program.

Regarding the diplomatic follow-up in the wake of the strike, Haley said that Assad is "not worthy" of direct talks with the U.S. Haley said the U.S. had previously gone through "every diplomatic measure of talking that we could and it was time for action".

But in recent weeks, Mr. Trump's government has obtained rising action versus Russian Federation, and also the president designated Mr. Putin over Syria's use of chemical weapons on Twitter and at a televised address on Friday night time. However, EU diplomats cautioned that until European governments had more idea of what the United States was planning, it was not possible to quickly follow suit. "And I presume everyone will feel it".

"The decisions that will be made will be very responsible", he said, adding that goods would be banned only if there are local alternatives of equivalent quality.

Republican Senator Susan Collins of ME said on ABC's "This Week" that while the air strikes on Syria were proportional and justifiable, they don't "solve the problem that we do not have an overall comprehensive strategy for dealing with Syria".

The chemical attack by Assad in Douma in early April set off a debate in the White House about whether the United States should trigger another round of economic sanctions to punish Russian Federation.

Mr Macron yesterday sought to clarify his comments and emphasise a common strategy with the Trump administration.

She said there was "clear evidence" Syria was behind the chemical attack.
