United Kingdom foreign minister cancels planned visit to Moscow over Syria's

Saul Franklin | 18 April, 2017, 02:55

Trump ordered a cruise missile attack on a Homs airbase on Friday in response.

US Ambassador to UN and current UN security council president, Nikki Haley leaves after presiding a United Nations Security Council meeting on Syria, at the UN headquarters in NY on April 7, 2017.

Pressed to clarify, McMaster said the goals of fighting IS and ousting Syria's president were somewhat "simultaneous" and that the objective of the missile strike was to send a "strong political message to Assad".

U.K. Defense Secretary of State Michael Fallon has claimed Saturday, writing in the Sunday Times that Russian Federation is responsible for the "barbaric chemical gas attack" in Syria Tuesday that claimed the lives of nearly 100 people and left 300 wounded. At the same time, Tillerson said Assad's fate would be decided by the Syrian people.

"A political solution is going to have to happen but we know that there is not any sort of option where a political solution is going to happen with Assad at the head of the regime", she said. Jake Tapper asked. "Regime change is the policy?"

Mr Johnson had originally planned to fly out to Moscow at the end of March, but rescheduled the visit in order to attend a meeting with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation counterparts, including U.S. secretary of state Rex Tillerson.

"It's important that we keep our priorities straight", said Tillerson. Mevlut Cavusoglu said Saturday that the United States intervention was only "cosmetic" unless it removes Assad from power.

Speaking during an emergency Security Council session, Haley said the USA was prepared to take further action in Syria but hoped it wouldn't be necessary.

Goals by Robert Huth and Jamie Vardy put them 2-0 ahead but Palace hit back through Yohan Cabaye and Christian Benteke. Long-time leaders Chelsea are away at Manchester United on Sunday for what looks the toughest fixture of their run-in.

President Trump called the chemical attack "reprehensible" and blamed it on the Obama administration. "There's an agreement with him not to use chemical weapons".

On Tuesday, a chemical attack by the Syrian government against civilians left at least 72 people dead and hundreds were injured. Rebels have denied they own or can produce nerve agents like Sarin.

Tillerson stopped short of accusing Russian Federation of direct involvement in planning or carrying out the attack, saying he had not seen "any hard evidence" to suggest Moscow was an accomplice to Assad. The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) is investigating the attack, but has yet to reach a conclusion.

"I hope Russian Federation is thinking carefully about its continued alliance with Bashar al-Assad because every time one of these horrific attacks occurs, it draws Russian Federation closer into some level of responsibility".

"By proxy Russian Federation is responsible for every civilian death last week", Fallon wrote in the Sunday Times newspaper.

On Saturday British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson announced he had canceled a planned trip to Russian Federation because of fast-changing developments in Syria.

"The world is clearly witnessing who is the peace-breaker and destroyer through this military attack of USA to Syria", the statement said, according to the Korean Central News Agency.
