TILLERSON: US CONSIDERING ‘APPROPRIATE RESPONSE’ TO SYRIAN GAS ATTACK

Washington, – The United States is considering “an appropriate response” to this week’s chemical weapons attack in Syria, said US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

“It a serious matter; it requires a serious response,” he said, referring to Tuesday’s attack.

Tillerson also said the next steps in Syria require an effort by the international community to first defeat Islamic State within Syria and stabilize the country before moving on to work with partners to see Syrian President Bashar al-Assad removed from power, dpa reported.

“Those steps are under way,” Tillerson said.(QNA)
