  • However, the Syrian government and Russia refused the reports are true.
  • On Tuesday, Russia and the United States met at the United Nations in an attempt to stave off a military confrontation in Syria but failed as Russia and western allies were unable to compromise on a concerted international response to the use of chemical weapons.
  • US President described the attack as “sick” and criticized Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iran for supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
  • threatened that there would be a “big price to pay” for the deaths.
  • Donald on Tuesday canceled a planned trip to Latin America later this week to focus instead on talks with Western allies about possible military action to punish Assad for the suspected gas attack.
  • US President described the attack as “sick” and criticized Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iran for supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
  • threatened that there would be a “big price to pay” for the deaths.
