Her words, however, came a day after she said Washington was ready to take additional action after a solo USA strike on a Syrian air base.

It followed days of outrage at images of dead children and victims suffering convulsions from the suspected sarin gas attack in the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhun.

"Developments in Syria have changed the situation fundamentally", Johnson said in a statement, according to a Reuters report.

"If Russia wants to be absolved of responsibility for future attacks, Vladimir Putin needs to enforce commitments, to dismantle Assad's chemical weapons arsenal for good, and to get fully engaged with the United Nations peacekeeping process", he wrote.

Mr Tillerson is due to meet his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, in Moscow on Tuesday. "This was something that needed to tell Assad, 'Enough is enough, '" she said.

The surprise strike - on the 77th day of Donald Trump's presidency - saw USA forces in the Mediterranean strike the Shayrat military airfield early on Friday.

Elsewhere in Syria, US-led air strikes killed at least 21 people, including a woman and her six children who were fleeing on a boat across the Euphrates River near ISIL's stronghold, Raqqa.

The comments from the Trump administration signal a new course in the foreign policy regarding Syria. "In no way do we see peace in that area with Assad as the head of the Syrian government".

"We were fully justified in doing so", she said.

Despite worldwide agreement that Tuesday's launched chemical attacks were carried out by the Assad-led government, Russian Federation and Iran have defended their mutual ally.

Haley went on to describe the missile strike as a "moderate approach" and warned that Trump is capable of much more.

But Secretary Tillerson called Russian Federation "incompetent" for allowing Syria to hold on to chemical weapons in interviews on Sunday, while America's United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley told CNN her country wanted regime change.

"The minister noted that the allegations Syrian government forces used chemical weapons in Idlib on April 4 are untrue", the ministry said.

But asked about the possibility of further intervention, the secretary of state said Washington's "first priority" in Syria was to defeat Islamic State terror group, also known as Daesh.

The White House says President Donald Trump spoke with Saudi Arabia's king about Syria and he "reaffirmed strong Saudi support for the United States' military strike against the Sayrat airfield".
