US Government urges Russia to stop support for Syrian President

12 April 2017 International

US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson has urged Russia to stop supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, during talks in Moscow.

The visit came amidst rising tensions over last week’s suspected chemical attack in Syria and US air strikes on a Syrian airbase launched in response.

Russia has condemned the US strikes and stood by Syria, its long-time ally.

President Trump has however made clear the US had no further plans there and was not going into that country’s civil war.
