Pence: US prepared to respond to possible retaliation by Syria

Pence’s pick for national security adviser backs out

Pence made the remarks after a reporter commented that U.S. -Russia relations have seemed to sour over the last week in particular, as the U.S. accuses Syrian President Bashar Assad of being behind a deadly chemical weapons attack against civilians last weekend in Douma.

Pence went one step further than most USA officials have said publicly since the strikes so far, claiming that further use of chemical weapons will mean a "price to pay" - military action.

US Vice President Mike Pence has threatened that Washington is set to respond to possible retaliatory moves against its missile attacks on Syria, by Damascus or its allies, specifically Russian Federation and Iran.

"Last night, the objective of the mission of that (our) commander in chief gave our military forces was completely accomplished, with swift professionalism", Pence said in response to reporters' questions about whether Trump hastily overstated the mission's outcome.

Pentagon officials earlier Saturday suggested they had proof that the Assad regime was behind the attack but could not elaborate as the information is classified.

Pence also said, "It's time for Russian Federation to get the message President Trump delivered last night".

Pence said that the United States acted on information from the intelligence community and allies, and they had a high degree of confidence that 'at a minimum, ' chlorine was used in the attack, and possibly sarin. You're known by the company that you keep.

'Our message to Russian Federation is, "you're on the wrong side of history", ' Pence also said.

The meeting comes amid tensions between Trump and Mexico over immigration and the president's calls for a border wall.

Later, speaking in a cavernous hall of world leaders at the Summit of the Americas, Pence expressed gratitude to Canada, Colombia and other nations that had voiced support for the strike and urged "every nation in this hemisphere of freedom" to support the military action.

The decades-old trilateral trade agreement has been a frequent target of President Trump, who has criticized large trade deficits the US has with Mexico and Canada, as well as the relocation of American jobs and companies.

Pence met with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, who has yet to meet with Trump amid an impasse over the wall Trump has pledged to build along the U.S. -Mexico border.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said on Saturday he was leaving a summit of Latin American countries in Peru very hopeful that the United States, Mexico and Canada were close to a deal on a renegotiated NAFTA trade pact. "And it will have a kind of fairness that will permit us to go forward in a productive, mutually beneficial relationship".
