Russian Federation knew Syrian chemical attack was coming

Russian Federation knew Syrian chemical attack was coming

Speaking after the meeting, Tillerson denounced Russia's "failure" to ensure the elimination of chemical weapons in Syria and said it had not made enough progress in peace talks.

Putin said Moscow would urgently ask the United Nations chemical weapons watchdog to investigate last week's incident.

"Why should USA taxpayers be interested in Ukraine?".

"We have seen it all already", Putin said.

"I will tell you: ... if you gas a baby, if you put a barrel bomb into innocent people, I think you will see a response from this president", Spicer said. But he says that distinction "doesn't much matter to the dead".

The official, who wasn't authorized to speak publicly on intelligence matters and demanded anonymity, didn't give precise timing for when the drone was in the area.

So Trump's decision to launch the strikes — an action President Barack Obama declined to take after a 2013 chemical attack — has raised optimism among rebels that Trump will more directly confront Assad.

"We want to relieve the suffering of the Syrian people".

"And those countries must also be part of the solution as we hold the Assad regime to account and as we move tangibly forward as an worldwide community to ending this conflict in Syria".

Putin added that some in the West are using Syria to cast Russian Federation as a "common enemy".

Ending a G-7 foreign ministers meeting, he says "we must have a dialogue with Russian Federation". The third is the demonstration that the US has eyes on the Syrian target and intelligence capabilities that should help the president, as long as he is prepared to use them.

Moscow has said Washington lacks a strategy in Syria, though Tillerson is expected to propose that Russian Federation change its own strategy and drop support for Syria's President Bashar al-Assad.

In his first televised interview, H.R. McMaster pointed to dual USA goals of defeating the Islamic State group and removing Assad from power.

Foreign ministers are to discuss a way to end President Putin's support for the Assad regime today after Russian Federation warned the United States that it had crossed a "red line" with its missile attack on Syria.

"Is that a long term alliance that serves Russia's interests?"

"The reign of the Assad family is coming to an end", he confidently predicted. "But the question of how that ends and the transition itself could be very important in our view to the durability, the stability inside of a unified Syria", which he said he "hopes" Assad will not be a part of.

In her interview with CNN's "State of the Union", Haley said removing Assad from power was one of a number of priorities for the US.

Tillerson flew on the administration's first cabinet mission to Russian Federation after meeting foreign ministers from the Group of Seven advanced economies and Middle Eastern allies in Italy.

A key focus since the chemical attack has been on increasing pressure on Russia, Assad's strongest ally, which has used its own military to keep Assad in power.

The U.S. official said the presence of the surveillance drone over the hospital couldn't have been a coincidence, and that Russian Federation must have known the chemical weapons attack was coming and that victims were seeking treatment. This includes the arrest of Russians in third countries by USA forces, violation of that northern country of the rights of adopted Russian children or the creation of artificial obstacles for the work legally established of our diplomats, it stresses. Trump's military calculation appears to have been that the Assad regime (and the wider world, especially North Korea) needed a clear reminder that the US does have red lines and will use force to deter transgressors.
