More than 80 people were killed in a suspected chemical attacked on the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun in north-western Syria on 4 April.
Following the attach, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said the incident was fabricated, while his ally Russia said an air strike hit a rebel depot full of chemical munitions. Contrary to the Syrian regime claim, Britain, France and the United States have accused President Bashar al-Assad’s forces of carrying out the attack on opposition controlled neighbourhood.
Kremlin (Russia) has vetoed a US-drafted resolution that would have extended by a year an investigation of who is behind chemical weapons attacks in Syria, making it the ninth time Russia will use her veto power.
Speaking at the UN Security Council meeting, Nikki Haley”Russia has once again demonstrated it will do whatever it takes to ensure the barbaric Assad regime never faces consequences for its continued use of chemicals as weapons,” Haley said in a statement.
