My government is absolutely convinced that we are correct in the pursuit of the goals of Syria that we are pursuing. But we acknowledge in sorrow, and I have to tell you, with a great sense of outrage, that Russia has turned a blind eye to Assad's deplorable use of these weapons of war that he's chosen.
Chlorine gas, barrel bombs, against his people. And together, the Syrian regime and Russia seem to have rejected diplomacy in furtherance of trying to pursue a military victory. Over the broken bodies, the bombed out hospitals, the traumatized children of a long-suffering land. People who are serious about making peace behave differently from the way Russia has chosen to behave.
