Nafta agreement could come in weeks, Pence, Trudeau say

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence receives a Venezuela's flag pin from Venezuelan opposition leader Antonio Ledezma during a meeting at the residence of the U.S. ambassador in Lima Peru Friday

Washington D.C. [USA], April 15 (ANI): United States Vice President Michael Pence on Saturday said that Russian Federation is "on the wrong side of the war" while referring to recent strikes on Syria by the U.S. along with Germany and France.

Pence Saturday responded to a reporter's question about if the president overstated the outcome of Syria's mission.

USA officials have emphasized that the allied attack on Syria was not meant to provoke or punish Damascus, but rather sought to target the country's chemical arsenal specifically.

Pence, however, justified the attack by merely stating that the U.S. did not act alone, claiming that other leaders at the Latin American summit had both publicly and privately expressed support for the Syria bombardment. The allied strike on Friday was prompted by a suspected chemical attack in a suburb of Damascus last week that left dozens dead.

Calling the strike "successful" and an "extraordinary success", Trump said the strike "degraded and crippled" and "significantly eroded" Syria's ability to use chemical weapons.

"Last night, the aim of the mission of this (our) commander-in-chief handed our military forces was utterly attained, with accelerated professionalism", Pence claimed in a reaction to reporters' inquiries about whether Trump reluctantly reevaluate the mission's no effect.

She sent officers to the school parking lot, where Plush was suffocating. "This matter is very disturbing", Black said. Cincinnati authorities are investigating the death Tuesday of 16-year-old Kyle Plush near Seven Hills School.

Pence attended the Summit when President Trump canceled his visit as he had to craft an official statement and take an action against the Syrian chemical attack.

Pence's description of the strikes reflected much of Mr. Trump's message the night before - including that the US stands ready to respond as needed to any further chemical weapons use by Assad's regime.

Pence said that the Trump administration considered every potential response in developing its plan for the Syrian strike and its monitoring the environment for any retaliation.

Pentagon officials earlier Saturday suggested they had proof that the Assad regime was behind the attack but could not elaborate as the information is classified.

Pence stated the united states of america acted after the intellect group and allies reasoned with a tall degree of self confidence which "at minimal", chlorine had been used from the assault, also possibly serin.

Noting that "you're known by the company you keep", Pence said Russian Federation needs to join other nations in opposing the use of chemical weapons in Syria and "live up to the commitments they made".
