Russia Vetoes UNSC Condemnation of Assad's Chemical Attack

CORRECTS DATE- US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson left and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov walk prior to their talks in Moscow Russia Wednesday

During his campaign, then President-elect Donald Trump pledged that he would have a much better relationship with Russian Federation than President Barack Obama had.

US ties with Russian Federation are at an "all-time low" due to Syria, President Donald Trump has said, adding that they want to improve ties with their Cold War enemy. "This means that they do not want success in the peace process", the top Syrian diplomat said, according to SANA news agency.

Afghanistan officials say the US attack on a tunnel complex in eastern Afghanistan with the largest non-nuclear weapon ever used in combat by the USA military killed 36 IS fighters.

During a meeting with his Russian Counterpart Sergey Lavrov in Moscow, Moallem said the U.S. aggression was aimed at disabling peace process in the war-hit country. "Right now, we're not getting along with Russia at all - we may be at an all-time low in terms of our relationship with Russia", Trump said alongside NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg at the White House on April 12.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Thursday called for the United Nations' chemical weapons watchdog to send an worldwide group of inspectors to investigate an alleged toxic gas attack in Syria last week. He told CBS's "Face the Nation" that the threat of ISIS would first need to be reduced, then "I think we can turn our attention directly to stabilizing the situation in Syria".

Damascus values highly Russia's position regarding the United States aggression against Syria, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said Thursday. "But we are sure in advance that the west will not agree to it", Muallem said during a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

Fox stock holds steady following O'Reilly firing
His nightly program, "The O'Reilly Factor, " generated high ratings and pulled in hundreds of millions in advertising revenues. While O'Reilly likely would have preferred to keep his job on the popular news network, he won't be walking away empty-handed.

Russian Federation vetoed a Western draft United Nations resolution Wednesday saying it failed to mention the need to inspect the area of the attack.

Iran, Russia and Syria deny that the authorities in Damascus were behind the attack, in which more than 80 people were killed and hundreds injured.

The missile attack on Assad's air base hurt Russia's prestige.

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Moallem said the meeting sent a "strong message" to Washington. "However, the question is if there will be new attempts to carry out aggression against Syria".

Russian Federation has staunchly backed Assad's government throughout Syria's six-year civil war.
