Watch: Daring rescue on NYC subway tracks
US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley: “How many more children have to die before Russia cares?”The UN Security Council convened for an emergency session regarding the chemical massacre allegedly carried out by Assad’s forces in Idlib.
A day after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad allegedly attacked in Idlib, Syria using chemical weapons, today (Wednesday), the United Nation’s Security Council convened for an emergency session. During the session, which was convened at the request of Britain, France and the US, the 3 countries blamed the attack on Assad’s government.
During the session, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley presented pictures of the victims from the chemical attack. “Yesterday morning, we awoke to pictures,” Haley stated. ““To children foaming at the mouth, suffering convulsions, being carried in the arms of desperate parents. We saw rows of lifeless bodies, some still in diapers, some with physical scars of a chemical weapons attack. Look at those pictures. We cannot close our eyes to those pictures. We cannot close our minds of the responsibility to act…We know that yesterday’s attack was a new low, even for the barbaric Assad regime.”
Haley continued to attack Russia and stated that if Moscow’s administration would’ve carried out its responsibilities, Assad wouldn’t have a chemical weapon today. “How many more children have to die before Russia cares?” Meanwhile, the US rejected Russian claims that Assad forces actually attacked a chemical arsenal belonging to the rebels.
The US, British and French Ambassadors to the UN drafted a resolution for a thorough investigation into the attack and received strong opposition from the Russian side, which threatened to veto the resolution.
