U.S. ambassador speaks to Russians about attack on Syria [video]

U.S. ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman said the Americans, British and French responded together in a targeted way to Syria’s latest chemical weapons attack and took steps to prevent civilian casualties.

“Before we took action, the United States communicated with the Russian Federation to reduce the danger of any Russian or civilian casualties,” Huntsman said. “All of the targets were directly linked with the Assad regime’s illegal chemical weapons program.”

He said we will “not tolerate the Assad regime’s use of these horrific, illegal weapons.”
