The U.S warns Syria not to use chemical weapons

The United States of America  National Security Adviser John Bolton has warned the Syrian government against using chemical weapons amidst the withdrawal of their troops. 

The United States of America  National Security Adviser John Bolton has warned the Syrian government against using chemical weapons amidst the withdrawal of their troops.

The warning on Saturday came as Bolton began a four-day trip to Israel and Turkey to discuss the pace of the troop pullout.

 The move which was announced before Christmas, was initially expected to be completed within weeks, but the timetable has slowed as US President Donald Trump acceded to requests from aides, allies and members of Congress for a more orderly withdrawal.

 "There is absolutely no change in the US position against the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime and absolutely no change in our position that any use of chemical weapons would be met by a very strong response, as we've done twice before," Bolton told reporters onboard his plane shortly before landing in Tel Aviv.

 Bolton said they have tried twice through the use of military force to demonstrate to the Assad regime that the use of chemical weapons is not acceptable.

 "And if they don't heed the lessons of those two strikes, the next one will be more telling."

 Trump has twice bombed Syria over the government's alleged use of chemical weapons in April 2017 and the same month last year. 

 In September, a senior US official said there was evidence showing chemical weapons were prepared by Syrian government forces in Idlib, the last major rebel stronghold in the country. 

Bolton said he was not suggesting Syria appeared ready to use chemical weapons.
