Tillerson says no reason for Russian Federation to retaliate

"If you look at his actions, if you look at the situation, it's going to be hard to see a government that's peaceful and stable with Assad", said Haley.

"We have got to be frank with them and we shouldn't just allow the Americans to go off and do that, we should be doing that ourselves". He also said the top USA priority in the region hasn't changed and remained the defeat of Islamic State militants.

U.S. officials blame Moscow for propping up Assad.

The regional alliance said the United States cruise missile strikes on the Syrian base which Washington said was involved in a chemical attack that killed dozens of civilians would not deter their forces from "liberating" all of Syrian territory.

Trump said the attack was in response to "the Syrian government's recent chemical attack in Idlib province".

A handout picture released by the official website of the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani shows him (R), the Head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization Ali Akbar Salehi (2R) and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif (2L) as they celebrate nuclear achievements during a ceremony marking the National day of Nuclear Technology in Tehran on April 9, 2017.

More than 320,000 people have been killed in Syria since the conflict began in March 2011 with anti-government demonstrations.

"I think the real failure here has been Russia's failure to live up to its commitments under the chemical weapons agreements that were entered into in 2013", he said on ABC's This Week.

But there have been repeated allegations of chemical weapons use since.

Syria's ally Russian Federation says the deaths were caused when a Syrian air strike hit a depot where rebels were making chemical weapons, leading to a leak of toxic gas.

An emergency session of the UN Security Council on Friday cast the divide over America's missile strikes on a Syrian government airbase into stark relief, with Britain and France supporting the US action but Russian Federation warning it of "extremely serious" consequences.

"By proxy Russian Federation is responsible for every civilian death last week", Fallon wrote in the Sunday Times newspaper.

Talking on ABC's "This Week" programme, Mr Tillerson - who is expected in Moscow tomorrow for talks with Russian officials - said the U.S. expected Russia to take a tougher stance against Syria by rethinking its alliance with Mr Assad because "every time one of these horrific attacks occurs, it draws Russia closer into some level of responsibility".

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has spent the weekend drumming up support for a joint plan to demand Mr Putin pulls his military out of Syria, The Sunday Times reports.
