Does Boris Johnson look 'daft' after pulling out of Russian Federation meeting?

10 April 2017

"There's not any sort of option where a political solution is going to happen with Assad at the head of the regime", she told the "State of the Union" programme.

"It's important that we keep our priorities straight".

Fallon wrote in the Sunday Times and said that the Kremlin is responsible "by proxy" and the "principle baker" of Syria's president, Bashar al-Assad and his regime.

"I think that's a regrettable comment on the part of Senator Rubio", Tillerson told CBS.

After years of calling for Assad's removal during former president Barack Obama's tenure, Washington appeared to be stepping back from seeking regime change in Syria in recent weeks.

With Russia and Iran threatening the United States and President Trump ready to launch further missile strikes in Syria if necessary, could this lead to World War 3 and another draft?

Kosachev stressed that the situation in Syria had not changed during the preparations for Johnson's visit, and if Johnson meant chemical attack in Syria's Idlib under "recent developments" - no one linked this incident with Moscow.

It killed at least 87 civilians, including 31 children, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor. "It is to the benefit of all parties operating in the air over Syria to avoid accidents and miscalculation, and we hope the Russian Ministry of Defence comes to this conclusion as well", Baldanza said.

Host Chris Wallace followed up by pointing out that Assad is still committing mass murder, just with different weapons, and asking if the USA is now prepared to retaliate against him for attacks on civilians with conventional weapons as well.

But there have been repeated allegations of chemical weapons use by the government since then.

Saturday's phone call was the first between the top diplomats of Russian Federation and the U.S. since the strikes on the Syrian airfield.

Russian Federation is responsible "by proxy" for the deaths of civilians in a nerve gas attack in Syria last week, the Defence Secretary has said.

The two men "condemned the American operation against a Syrian airbase which is an aggression against an independent country", Iran's state news agency IRNA said.

The foreign ministers of the seven most powerful industrial countries are scheduled to meet on April 10-11 in Italy preparing for the high-level leaders' summit in Italy later in May to discuss issues concerning global peace and security.

Earlier in the day, Johnson announced in a statement published on the United Kingdom government official website that he had canceled his visit to Moscow, scheduled for April 10, due to the recent developments in Syria.

Sky News Political Correspondent Tamara Cohen said: "The meeting was seen as an attempt at bridge-building after Mr Johnson's high-profile swipes at Russian Federation, accusing them previous year of "war crimes" in Syria and perpetrating more violence in Ukraine".
