United States urges new UN resolution on Syria gas attack

Last year, the USA launched 59 tomahawk missiles on a Syrian base that was believed to have launched a chemical attack.
The US carried out air strikes a year ago after the Syrian regime used a sarin nerve agent in an attack at Khan Sheikhoun that killed 90 people.
U.S. officials said that Washington was weighing a multinational military response.
"We're making decisions as to what we do with respect to the awful attack", Trump said Monday.
The U.S. has also requested that the U.N. Security Council vote Tuesday afternoon on a resolution calling for a new investigation into the use of chemical weapons in Syria.
"Since the beginning of the humanitarian operation in Eastern Ghouta terrorists have failed to fake a single so-called chemical weapon attack against the civilian population", he said.
"This provocation was like a breeze of the fresh air needed by militants who received such timely support from the U.S. and other Western countries", Nebenzia said at the UNSC meeting on Tuesday.
The statement by the Foreign Ministry in Damascus comes as a war of words is raging between Washington and Moscow over last weekend's suspected chemical attack on a rebel-held town near the Syrian capital. "The United States is determined to see the monster who dropped chemical weapons on the Syrian people held to account".
In the 15-member Security Council, 12 voted in favour of the proposal, while Bolivia joined Russian Federation in voting "no" and China abstained.
Russian Federation is disputing the claim that Assad's government was behind the attack; Trump has said evidence indicates otherwise.
At the same timeRussia's special envoy to Syria, Alexander Lavrentiev reportedly visited Tehran in secret for discussions with the secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani. Nebenzya noted that over the weekend, when Douma was allegedly targeted by chemical weapons, the U.S. side declared it already knew who was at fault - "Animal Assad", Russia and Iran - so the United States proposal appeared insincere.
Before the vote, Russian ambassador to the United Nations Vassily Nebenzia accused the USA of pushing for a vote as a pretext for possible use of force against Syria.
As the showdown between Russian Federation and the United States got underway, Moscow's Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia accused the United States of "planting this resolution" as a "pretext" to justify action against Syria and "taking yet one more step toward confrontation".
He called Mueller's investigation "an attack on our country", prompting new speculation that he might seek the removal of the Justice Department's special counsel. "Sadly, these actions are consistent with Assad's established pattern of chemical weapons use".
Arizona, which unlike OR shares a border with Mexico , has long sought to address the adverse effects of illegal immigration. Immigration advocates accused Trump of manufacturing a crisis to demonize immigrants . "We've got to protect our borders ".
