US to announce new sanctions against Russia on Monday

Also, Haley excluded West's direct talks with Assad

The United States will soon announce new sanctions against Russia in connection with the situation in Syria, CBS News reports citing the US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley.

"You will see that Russian sanctions will increase. Minister (US Treasury) Mnuchin will announce this on Monday, if he has not already done so, and they will be directed to companies that supply equipment and technologies related to Assad's chemical weapons," the diplomat said.

Also, Haley excluded the possibility of direct negotiations between the West and Bashar Assad:

"The US will never agree to direct negotiations with the Assad regime, because the government of the Syrian president is" not worthy "to participate in the talks" one on one", said Haley.

Recall that on the night of April 14, the United States, Britain and France struck at Syrian military facilities associated with chemical weapons. Countries have resorted to military intervention, since they are responsible for the alleged Syrian government, the Russian Federation and Iran for the alleged chemical attack in the city of the Duma.

Later on the same day, the UN Security Council refused to support the draft resolution submitted by Russia during an emergency meeting, in which it acknowledged the "aggression" a blow to Syria.
We recall, on the evening of April 13, US President Donald Trump ordered to conduct the rocket attacks on Syrian territory in response to the use of chemical weapons in the Douma. They were also joined by the United Kingdom and France. According to Reuters, the United States struck with cruise missiles Tomahawk.

After the attack, the statement was also made by British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron. The leaders noted that the strikes were applied exclusively to objects that are associated with chemical weapons. The Russian ambassador to the US, Antonov, threatened sides with the consequences for striking Syria.

On April 7, the volunteer organizations reported that the chemical attack at Douma, the East Ghouta took place. As a result of this attack at least 70 people died. The Syrian government and Russia called this information untrue, while the US and allies have blamed Bashar al-Assad for the attack.

Later U.S. President Donald Trump announced about a coming missile attack in Syria and urged Russia to be prepared. Also, the British troops prepare for the operation.

In its turn, Russia’s Foreign Ministry claimed that the missiles should aim the ‘terrorists’. The General Staff of Russia recommended the US and its allies to restore Syrian Raqqa instead of threats.
