Nikki Haley says U.S. 'work in Syria is not done'

The United States' "work in Syria is not done," U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Fox News Sunday. "We're not going to leave until we know we have accomplished [U.S. goals]," she continued. "Be very clear, if we leave — when we leave — it will be because we know that everything is moving forward."

Haley listed three goals to be achieved in Syria: no use of chemical weapons in a manner that could harm U.S. interests, complete defeat of the Islamic State, and limiting Iranian influence in Syria. She argued a chemical weapons attack could happen in the United States "if we're not smart."

In an appearance on CBS, she announced new "Russian sanctions will be coming down," likely Sunday or Monday. These new sanctions "will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad] and chemical weapons use," she said. "I think everyone knows that we sent a strong message, and our hope is that they listen to it."
