Tillerson arrives in Moscow for potentially heated Russian Federation talks

Tillerson arrives in Moscow for potentially heated Russian Federation talks

Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, said comments made by people in President Donald Trump's administration are "partially to blame" for encouraging Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's apparent use of chemical weapons on his people last week.

Barrel bombs are oil drums or cylinders packed with explosives and shrapnel.

Last week, the US military launched a missile strike against a Syrian government airfield in response to the chemical weapons used against civilians.

Meanwhile, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said in a briefing on Monday that Tillerson will try during his visit to Moscow "to get the Russian government back on the same page" as the United States with respect to commitments in Syria.

In an interview with the New York Post, Trump was asked about infighting among top members of his administration in which Bannon is said to be a center figure. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Monday that the Assad regime would be "ill-advised" to use chemical weapons in the future, foreshadowing a potentially greater U.S. response than last week's strike.

During his first day in Italy, Mr Tillerson plans to meet on Monday with foreign ministers from the United Kingdom and France before the G-7 summit formally opens.

It echoes the position of U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who flew straight from the summit in Italy to Moscow, carrying the G7's strong desire for a new start in Syria, but few concrete proposals to make it happen.

Tillerson accompanied Alfano to Santa'Anna di Stazzema, where 560 civilians, including some 130 children, were killed in 1944.

A spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said Britain was "in discussions with our key partners on how we can bring further pressure to bear on the regime and those who are backing it, which includes the Russians".

Washington's missile strike was the first time it had intervened directly against the regime of Assad, who is fighting a civil war with the backing of Russian Federation and Iran.

In an interview on Fox Business Network Wednesday, Trump said the USA was "not going into Syria", and that Putin was backing "a truly evil person".

"Now, we are not saying that we are the ones who are going to effect that change".

Another U.S. official cautioned that no final American determination has been made that Russian Federation knew ahead of time that chemical weapons would be used. And so Russian Federation can be a part of that future and play an important role.

United States officials said the strike against the Shayrat airbase hit aircraft, fuel storage, weapons dumps and other equipment, and was aimed at sending a message to the Syrian regime that the use of chemical weapons would not be tolerated.

"We have information from various sources that such provocations - I can not call them otherwise - are being prepared in other regions of Syria, including in the southern outskirts of Damascus, where they are again planning to throw some kind of substance and accuse Syrian official authorities of using it", Putin said at a televised press conference. "Japan and the United States will jointly call on China to play a bigger role", Kishida told reporters after meeting Tillerson in Lucca.
