We set their chemical weapons program back years.Our job was never to take Assad out. There will be more.

In a separate interview with the BBC, the foreign secretary said Britain and its allies "would study what the options were" should there be another chemical attack by Assad.

"We'll see how smart he is", Haley said.

Asked about US-Russia relations, US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said ties were "very strained" but that the United States still hoped for a better relationship.

President Donald Trump's recent air strike on Syria was controversial enough, but his tweets about the operation drew a wave of backlash on social media.

But Haley said the USA would not pull its troops out of Syria - despite vows by President Trump to bring the military home - until its goals are accomplished.

Haley, in her Fox News interview, also defended its use as a military term, rather than as a broader political statement.

She said: "We can not stand by and let Russian Federation trash every worldwide norm and allow use of chemical weapons to go unanswered".

On the "Fox News Sunday" program, Haley again slammed Russian Federation, accusing it of enabling the Syrian government to use chemical weapons without worrying about blowback at the United Nations. And so I think everyone is going to feel it at this point. "We can't control what a country does to its people".

Haley also said the United States would not pull its troops out of Syria before three goals have been accomplished: defeating Islamic State militants, ensuring chemical weapons will not be used and maintaining the ability to watch Iran.

"Everything that has strained the relationship is on Russia's side", she said, adding that the USA hopes for improved relations with Moscow, but that "we're not going to put up with bad behavior to get it".

A senior Russian military official said on Saturday that Syria's air defences, which mostly consist of systems made in the former Soviet Union, had intercepted 71 of the 105 American, British and French missiles.

USA military officials said an initial assessment showed every one of the missiles struck its target on Saturday, reducing the facilities to rubble while avoiding any civilian casualties. The operation targeted three Syrian chemical weapons facilities - one in the capital of Damascus and two others near Homs, near the border with northern Lebanon.

US defense officials say they have high confidence chlorine gas was used and are still assessing evidence indicating the presence of sarin gas.

"Yesterday we saw American aggression".

The nighttime Syria assault was carefully limited to minimize civilian casualties and avoid direct conflict with Syria's key ally, Russia, but confusion arose over the extent to which Washington warned Moscow in advance.

Trump has made clear he wants to withdraw the roughly 2000 U.S. troops involved in the anti-Islamic State campaign in Syria. "That's why you saw the president strike this past weekend", she continued.
