The United States and Russia had contradicting responses to the gas attack in Syria this week that killed more than 80 people, setting the stage for a diplomatic collision.
The White House is blaming Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for the attack, but Russia is blaming anti-Assad rebels. The differing perspectives appear to derive from the manner in which each country believes the attack was carried out.
Was it Syrian aircraft that dropped the deadly Sarin gas on its people, or did Syrian warplanes bomb a facility wherein rebels were building chemical weapons?
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will discuss Syria with Russian leaders when he visits Moscow next week. It will be the first visit by a top U.S. official to Russia since President Trump’s inauguration in January.
