The United States will not pull its troops out of Syria until Washington’s objectives are accomplished, Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the UN, said in a television interview on Sunday. 

According to Ms. Haley, the three aims for the U.S. are ensuring chemical weapons are not used in any way that poses a risk to US interests, so-called Islamic State is defeated and to establish a good vantage point to watch what Iran is doing.

“[It is our goal] to see American troops come home, but we are not going to leave until we know we have accomplished those things,” Haley said on Fox News Sunday.

In a separate interview, Haley said that the U.S. was preparing new sanctions on Russia over its continued support of Syrian President Bashar-al Assad.

The sanctions will be announced by U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Monday, Haley said on CBS network.
