US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson delivered an ultimatum to the Russian Federation in the framework of participation in the meeting of the Foreign Ministers of G7 countries, according to CNN reports. Tillerson denounced Moscow's "failure" to uphold commitments it made in 2013 and laid down an ultimatum for Russia, saying that Moscow must think about whether to remain an ally with the Assad regime, the Iranians and Hezbollah.
"Is that a long term alliance that serves Russia's interests? Or would Russia prefer to realign with the United States, with other Western countries and Middle East countries that are seeking to resolve the Syrian crisis," the American politician said.
The US Secretary of State also expressed the hope that Russia would end its cooperation with the regime of Bashar al-Assad.
Earlier, QHA reported that in the morning of April 7, the United States of America launched a military operation against the forces of the Bashar Assad regime. The American missile hit the Air Force base of the Bashar Assad regime "Shayrat". According to Pentagon spokesperson Colonel Jeff Davis, a massive strike was a response to the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime in the city of Khan Sheikhun in the province of Idlib.
As a result of the chemical attack carried out by Assad regime forces in the village of Khan Sheikhun in the province of Idlib on April 4, more than 100 civilians were killed, about 500 people were injured, mostly children.
The UN Security Council failed to adopt the draft resolution on the chemical attack in Syria on April 4, as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia called it absolutely unacceptable.
