No Political Solution In Syria With Assad In Power : Haley

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Sunday said there is no political solution to the conflict in Syria until President Bashar al-Assad is out of power.

"There's not any sort of option where a political solution is going to happen with Assad at the head of the regime," Haley told CNN in an interview airing on Sunday.

The Indian-origin diplomat's remarks came days after the US on April 6 unleashed 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airbase in a retaliating for the Assad-led government’s alleged chemical weapons attack that killed nearly 80 persons in Idlib province.

Haley on Friday told a special session of the UN Security Council that the US was "prepared to do more" in Syria and that it was Washington's "vital national interest" to stop the use and spread of chemical weapons.

According to Haley, the Assad regime has committed atrocities on innocent Syrian civilians multiple times.

"It just - if you look at his actions, if you look at the situation, it's going to be hard to see a government that's peaceful and stable with Assad."
