Tillerson: Russia should think carefully about supporting Syrian regime

The US top diplomat said Wednesday that it is time that Russia thinks “carefully” about their support to the Syrian regime following the chemical attack in Syria that killed dozens of innocent people, including women and children.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters ahead of his meeting with Mexican Foreign Secretary “there’s no doubt in our mind that the Syrian regime under the leadership of Bashar al-Assad is responsible for this horrific attack.” “We think it’s time that the Russians really need to think carefully about their continued support of the Assad regime,” he remarked.

Meanwhile, following his meeting with Mexican Foreign Secretary, Acting Spokesperson Mark Toner said in a statement that Tillerson and Foreign Secretary of Mexico discussed “a range of bilateral and regional issues, including economic cooperation, security, and migration.” He added they discussed cooperation in Central America and “ongoing efforts to combat transnational criminal organizations.” They also discussed “efforts at the Organization of American States to encourage Venezuela to resolve its current political and humanitarian issues.”
