Macron condemns Syria 'chemical attacks' - Elysee

Looking Up       France forecasts the budget deficit will narrow more quickly               Source Finance Ministry

Aurelie Perrier, coordinator for Yemen and Saudi Arabia at Amnesty International France, said: 'France is potentially an accomplice to serious violations of humanitarian laws by selling weapons and military equipment to Saudi Arabia, given what we know is taking place in Yemen'.

"We're still assessing the intelligence, ourselves and our allies", Mattis said.

Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri, who was in Paris, attended. United States assessments have also been unable to conclusively link the alleged attack with the Syrian government or its allies.

Asked whether the USA military was ready to conduct an attack in Syria if ordered, Mattis replied, "We stand ready to provide military options if they're appropriate, as the president determined".

The president's remark might have raised fewer eyebrows had he left it until later in a one-hour speech on Monday night to Church dignitaries in Paris, where he began by saying that just arranging such a gathering was an achievement in itself. We are totally predictable.

Trump did not detail what a strike would look like, or whether these would be USA missiles.

"Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria", Trump wrote on Twitter, lashing out at Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Russia's Vladimir Putin, a key ally of the regime. In addition, the report goes on to add that France will be consulting with the United States and Britain on what to do next.

Observers say the Trump administration is bolstering cooperation with France and Britain to keep in check Russia's support of the Syrian government. Trump has largely avoided criticizing Russian President Vladimir Putin by name, though he singled him out in a tweet over the weekend for supporting Assad.

10 de abril de 2018, 16:47Paris, Apr 10 (Prensa Latina) French President Emmanuel Macron affirmed today that he will soon decide with other countries on an eventual military attack in Syria, following an alleged chemical aggression that some Western nations impute, without evidence, to the government of Damascus.

"If we've done so, it must be because somewhere we share the feeling that the link between Church and State has been damaged, that the time has come for us, both you and me, to mend it", he said.

Macron, 40, France's youngest leader since Napoleon, and the 32-year-old Saudi prince who goes by MBS, met privately earlier Tuesday to discuss defense, security and economic issues. The Syrian government denies responsibility.
