Amrita Sen from Energy Aspects said that despite Middle Eastern tensions and looming new USA sanctions on Iran, she believed oil has outperformed most expectations this year and may have rallied too far too fast.

Russian news agencies say a group of Russian lawmakers met with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus on Sunday.

"The global community will not allow chemical weapons to come back into our everyday life", she said. "[Treasury Secretary Steven] Mnuchin will be announcing those on Monday if he hasn't already and they will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use".

Gold and oil will extend their gains on Monday, albeit modestly, when the markets open for the first time since Western powers launched a missile attack on Syria but equities and bonds are unlikely to suffer big losses unless the West strikes again or Russian Federation retaliates.

The United States, Britain and France fired more than 100 missiles at three alleged chemical weapons facilities Friday, angering Syria's military backer Moscow, which threatened to retaliate.

And she said President Donald Trump told her Saturday morning that if the Syrian regime uses poisonous gas again "the United States is locked and loaded" to strike again.

Russian Federation had earlier warned that it would equip Syria with better anti-air missile defense systems to take down any missile attacks in the future.

Later, the hero answers earnestly, saying he has waited a long time for an opportunity like the one Beckett is giving him. Woody Harrelson , Emilia Clarke , Thandie Newton , Paul Bettany , and Phoebe Waller-Bridge are also amongst the cast.

"Assad knew that Russian Federation had its back, Assad knew that Russian Federation would cover for them at the United Nations, and Assad got reckless, and he used it in a way that was far more aggressive", Haley said on "Fox News Sunday".

The sanctions follow USA -led airstrikes against Syria's chemical weapons capability and President Trump's promise that Assad and his allies, namely Moscow, would pay a "big price" for enabling the use of chemical weapons.

Britain argued that the strikes were "both right and legal" to alleviate humanitarian suffering from repeated use of toxic gas in attacks in Syria's seven-year war.

The nighttime assault on Syria was carefully limited to minimize civilian casualties and avoid direct conflict with Russian Federation, but confusion arose over the extent to which Washington warned Moscow in advance. What happens next, she said, is up to Assad and to his Russian and Iranian allies. Moscow has also tempered its tone, saying only that "there will be consequences".

A draft resolution circulated by the three countries and obtained late Saturday by The Associated Press would condemn all use of chemical weapons, especially the April 7 attack in Douma.

Oil prices fell, however, as geopolitical tensions were somewhat eased by signs that there would be no significant retaliation in response to a US-led air strike on Syria over the weekend.
