Nikki Haley accuses Russian Federation of allowing chemical weapons use in Syria

Nikki Haley accuses Russian Federation of allowing chemical weapons use in Syria”

Nikki Haley, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, called out the Russian government for what she called its "unilateral responsibility" for the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

While Haley admitted that no decision has yet been made by the U.S.to respond with military force to the latest chemical attack in Syria, she stressed any future action by the US will be directed at deterring the use of chemical weapons of any kind, in "defense of a bedrock worldwide norm". That was four days ago.

"All nations and all people will be harmed if we allow Assad to normalize the use of chemical weapons", she added.

"It is Russian Federation alone that has stopped at nothing to defend the Syrian regime's multiple uses of chemical weapons", Haley said.

Russia's foreign minister claimed the suspected attack was staged by a country with an anti-Russia agenda.

But Vassily Nebenzia, Russia's ambassador to the United Nations, accused Western powers on Friday of using the alleged attack as a pretense to oust Assad and to check Russia's power. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said his government has worked "robustly and fully" to de-escalate tensions in worldwide relations.

Nearly a week later, Russian Federation is making claims the chemical attack was staged. Experts from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons are expected to arrive Douma on Saturday. Both the Syrian government and the Kremlin, which backs Assad, have denied such a chemical attack took place.

Asked if the United States had proof of that, she said, "Yes".

As the worldwide community waits to see if there will be a military response, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned of the dangers of escalation.

Haley then went on to describe the gruesome effects of chemical weapons, which were used on the battlefield in World War I and by Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.

If Trump does decide to use force in Syria, it is expected to be a more robust response than the strike he launched in April 2017 after a similar chemical weapons attack, which didn't seem to deter Assad.

Guterres added that the situation in Syria is now the "most serious threat to worldwide peace and security".
