Russian Federation blocks United Nations resolution on Syria attack

Reacting to the USA strike Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said Washington had carried out an "unjust and unabashed assault" against Syria which 'shows nothing but short-sightedness, a narrowness of vision and blindness to political and military realities'.

The US military and intelligence community has intercepted communications featuring Syrian military and chemical experts talking about preparations for the sarin attack in Idlib last week, a senior US official tells CNN.

Rex Tillerson, the US Secretary of State, and Sergey Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, announced they would restore a military hotline created to avoid their forces clashing in Syria and would both support a United Nations investigation into last week's poison gas attack.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson got an unusually hostile reception in Moscow.

But Lavrov said some progress had been made on Syria at the meeting and that a working group would be set up to examine the poor state of U.S. -Russia ties.

The Foreign Secretary said the move puts the Kremlin "on the wrong side of the argument" while it continues to act "as a lifeline for Assad's murderous regime" in Syria.

"If the regime is innocent, as Russian Federation claims, the information requested in this resolution would have vindicated them". No one has yet visited the site of the crime. "And it was very, very successfully done", the US President said at a joint press conference with visiting NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the White House.

Declaring that "the best time is now", Brown said she is enjoying life and is not sitting around waiting to die. She attended church regularly, avoids pork and chicken and celebrated her 117th birthday last month.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said that Russian Federation by vetoing a Security Council draft has said no to peace in Syria.

France, the United Kingdom and the USA introduced the resolution in response to the suspected sarin attack on the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun on April 4, which killed more than 80 people, including women and children.

Looking at the resolution's supporters sitting around the horseshoe-shaped table in the Security Council, he said: "You are afraid of an impartial investigation" that the Syrian government was being blamed for chemical weapons attacks carried out by extremists. He said the Russian hope was that Putin's message would be passed on to U.S. President Donald Trump. This team has already found Syrian government forces were responsible for three chlorine gas attacks in 2014 and 2015 and that Islamic State militants used mustard gas.

Russian Federation and Bolivia were against - while China, Kazakhstan and Ethiopia abstained.

He used the bombings - which still haven't been solved, with the case officially closed - to justify a scorched-earth warfare in Chechnya and to boost Russian nationalism, making him popular in Russia soon after he took over as the country's president.

During his campaign, then President-elect Donald Trump pledged that he would have a much better relationship with Russian Federation than President Barack Obama had.

After the USA launched a Tomahawk missile barrage on a Syrian air base last week, Russian Federation announced that it was suspending observance of the memorandum that established the hotline. It was unclear if Moscow planned to put the text to a vote.
