Trump says United States relations with Russian Federation at 'all-time low'

21 April 2017, 01:59 | Taylor George

The United States wants to improve ties with Russian Federation from their current "all-time low" over Syria, President Donald Trump said Wednesday, as Moscow dug in to defend its ally in Damascus. Russian Federation says rebels were responsible for whatever chemical agent was used, which the Trump administration calls a disinformation campaign. "And we suspect that they have help", a U.S. military official told reporters at a background briefing Friday. Chinese President Xi Jinping calls for peaceful resolution of rising tension on the Korean peninsula in a telephone conversation with Trump, as a US aircraft carrier strike group heads toward the region.

We noticed that when the Trump administration came to power, the U.S. role in the Astana and the Geneva process has been reduced to the very minimum.

US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, called on Moscow to stop protecting Assad, and said the US wants to work with Russian Federation toward a political solution for Syria.

The meeting between Tillerson and Russian President Vladimir Putin came after hours of tense exchanges, with both sides staking out positions that were sharply at odds.

France, the United Kingdom and the US introduced the resolution in response to the suspected sarin attack on the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun on April 4, which killed more than 80 people, including women and children.

Mr Lavrov also said there were "confusing and sometimes openly contradictory ideas" from the Trump administration on the US-Russia relationship and worldwide issues.

UK ambassador to the United Nations Matthew Rycroft said supporting the Assad regime would result in "shame" and "humiliation" for Russian Federation.

"They were there", he said.

Turkish election board rejects appeals to annul referendum
He said the remarks made following the referendum had gone too far and that the report lacked respect for Turkish voters. The German government has also questioned the vote after the European Union called for a probe into the result.

But such hopes appeared optimistic as the diplomats outlined their sharply diverging views on Syria. It was Assad's first since the alleged April 4 chemical weapons attack prompted a United States cruise missile strike on a Syrian air base.

The fate of a war measure may ultimately boil down to whether Trump's strike against Assad last week was the beginning of a larger campaign against the Syrian leader. Could World War 3 happen this year?

Tillerson was greeted frostily in the Russian capital as Lavrov began their meeting Wednesday by demanding to know America's "real intentions".

Putin denounced the USA strike and called the chemical attack a provocation aimed at blaming Assad.

Trump and others have indeed threatened similar action. The US scoops up such a large volume of communications intercepts in areas like Syria and Iraq, the material often is not processed unless there is a particular event that requires analysts to go back and look for supporting intelligence material.

But also, the U.S. feels right now that it has made the case that Russian support for Assad must end.

That's why I supported last week's limited action against the airfield from which Assad's air force launched the chemical attack.
