U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley says President Trump has not made any decision about possible military actions in Syria.
During an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting Friday, Haley said the president is analyzing the situation and taking measures to avoid any repercussions. She blamed Bashar Al-Assad for the alleged attack in Douma, saying the Syrian president has used chemical weapons during the war at least 50 times. Haley also criticized Russia for not condemning Assad and said the U.S. is taking every precaution necessary.
“Should the United States and our allies decide to act in Syria, it will be in defense of a principle on which we all agree,” said Ambassador Nikki Haley. “It will be in defense of a bedrock international norm that benefits all nations.”
Defense Secretary James Mattis says the Trump Administration’s main priority is protecting civilians in Syria.
