Nikki Haley Calls US-Russia Relations 'Very Strained'

("Fox News Sunday")

United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley on Sunday conceded relations between the United States and Russia are "very strained," but "we won't put up with bad behavior" in trying to achieve cooperation with Moscow.

Haley told "Fox News Sunday" that Russia's involvement "with all the wrong actors" around the world — including Ukraine, Venezuela, Syria, Iran, and using a chemical weapon against a former spy in Britain.

"Our hope is always to make sure we can get a better relationship with Russia," Haley said. "It is in our best national interest to do that. We won't put up bad behavior to get it."

"There [are] multiple issues we have with Russia right now," Haley pointed out, adding, "Right now they don't have very good friends, and right now the friends that they do have are causing them harm."

"Everything that has strained this relationship has been on the side of Russia," she said. "The military strikes did not have to happen if Russia had not covered for [Syrian leader Bashar al-]Assad. Six times they vetoed chemical weapons resolutions related to Syria . . . The international community is telling Russia that either you make a decision on how you act, or the rest of us will make a decision in isolating you."
