The United States wants to try to cooperate with Russia on the Syrian conflict and counter-terrorism, but will call Moscow out if it is "doing anything wrong," U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said Sunday.
Haley also told CBS News' "Face The Nation" she would support sanctions moving through the Senate to sanction Russia.
"We don't ever want to see a country meddling in our elections," she said. "It's a serious thing. I think that we know the vote was not changed because of the meddling of Russia, but it doesn't make it right. And I think that at the end of the day, Russia needs to know that there are consequences when they get involved in our elections."
She also defended actions taken against Russia in the U.N. Security Council.
"We've stood strong on the sanctions in their situations with Ukraine," she said. "We called them out in their association with the Assad regime. . . . We're going continue to call them out as we need to."
"At the same time, we are trying to see if we can have talks with them on how to better come in line in the Syrian conflict," she said. "We're working with them on counter-terrorism. But if we see Russia doing anything wrong, we're going to tell them."
She added the international community is "concerned about Russia's meddling within all of their elections."
"But they're concerned about Russia for a lot of reasons. And so we'll continue to keep our eye on them. And when we can work with them, we want to try and do that. But when we can't, we're going to hold the line."
