Russia-Syria Ties to Dominate G7 Meeting of Foreign Ministers

Boris Johnson cancels visit to Moscow due April 10 - Foreign Office

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has criticised Russian Federation, saying it had failed to prevent Syria from carrying out a chemical attack on a rebel-held town.

Meanwhile, Italy wants the group to issue a communique that will reinforce the United Nations -backed peace process in the war-torn country, Reuters reported.

It was later announced that Russia, Iran and Hezbollah would increase their support for the Syrian military after the United States fired 59 cruise missiles at the airbase from which it believes the gas attack was launched.

Boris Johnson decided not go to Russian Federation amid growing pressure on President Vladimir Putin to cut his ties with Syria's Bashar al Assad in the wake of a suspected chemical attack that killed at least 87 people, including children.

The Trump administration had seemed ambivalent over whether it would push for regime change in Syria.

When asked if President Trump could order more air strikes against the Syrian regime, she said: "If he needs to do more, he will do more".

"The U.S. launched a cruise missile attack against Syria two days after Bashar al-Assad's regime used poison gas to kill scores of civilians, an act that drew worldwide condemnation and that President Donald Trump called "'an affront to humanity". Secondly, we don't see a peaceful Syria with Assad in there.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says Russia's inaction played a part in fuelling a deadly gas attack on Syrian civilians.

But instead of regime change, what we should focus on is humanitarian relief ...

Syria agreed to remove its chemical weapons stockpile in 2013 when the USA threatened military action after hundreds of people were killed in a sarin chemical attack on a Damascus suburb.

Soon after, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson appeared in a hastily arranged news conference in Florida - his first in the USA since he was confirmed for the job - ostensibly to discuss Xi's visit.

"Once Daesh threat has been reduced or eliminated, I think we can turn our attention directly to stabilising the situation in Syria", he said.

Elsewhere in Syria, at least seven people were killed in air strikes in Eastern Ghouta, near the capital Damascus.

But the regime has denied any responsibility, saying its air strikes hit a rebel depot containing chemical materials.
