Trump advisers: US seeks to fight IS and oust Syria's Assad

Speaking on NBC's Meet the Press, Haley said that "in no way do we see peace in that area with Assad as the head of the Syrian government".

U.S. Senator John McCain accused Russian Federation on Monday of having cooperated with Syrian government forces in a chemical weapons attack that has killed more than 80 people, including more than a dozen children.

Speaking on Fox News Sunday, McMaster said the United States would take further action in Syria if necessary.

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.

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 USA 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".

"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.

"Three months ago Syria wasn't really an issue for them but our push and recent events have made a difference".

The statement by the group, published on media outlet Ilam al Harbi (War Media) said: "What America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines".

The province remains a primary target Syrian and Russian jet fighters. "And we believe that the first priority is the defeat of ISIS", Tillerson said in an interview with CBS television's "Face the Nation" that was to be broadcast later on April 9. "And Russia was never part of the targeting". In no way do we see peace in that area with Russian Federation covering up for Assad.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says he aims to clear up "sharp differences" with Russia as he opens a tense meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

The United States is "playing the terrorism game", Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Saturday during his first phone talks with his U.S. counterpart Rex Tillerson since the USA air strikes on Syria last week.

The Russian foreign ministry said the decision showed once more that there was little to gain from talking to Britain, which it said had no real influence over world affairs.

Team Trump, meanwhile, was still basking in the praise he received from many quarters for the retaliatory attack on the Syrian air base from which the planes carrying chemical weapons were launched. A very small percentage of the people have been slaughtered in Syria have been slaughtered by chemical weapons.

Washington has long backed rebels fighting Assad in a multi-sided civil war that has killed more than 400,000 people and driven half of Syrians from their homes since 2011.
