The meeting was arranged on the 'sidelines' of the Group of 7 (Russia used to make '8') of "likeminded" countries days after the U.S. struck at Bashar al-Assad for having killed his own citizens with Sarin nerve gas. From that meeting, Tillerson flew to Moscow to meet with Russian leaders (other than Putin) to try convincing them to end their support for the weak chin Assad.
Also meeting with the G-7 countries are diplomats from Jordan, Saudi Arabia (who assist the world in supplying Islamic terrorists), Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and others.
Tillerson hopes to enlist these Middle East countries into helping ensure and stabilize Syria after ISIS is defeated. The meeting lasted an hour.
The Secretary of State hasn't been very visible publicly, but last week's attack had him in front of the media answering questions from reporters about Assad's chemical attack which resulted in the U.S. responding with 59 Tomahawk Cruise missiles.
One libtard politician thought that Native Americans would be insulted that Cruise missiles are labeled 'Tomahawk Cruise missiles' because she believes the tomahawk is unique to Native Americans. But the fact is that tomahawks were created as a general purpose tool used by Native Americans and European colonials. The design was originally based on a Royal Navy boarding axe used as a trade-item with Native Americans for food, etc. That's why liberals are generally stupid when it comes to identity politics.
U.S. officials along with Tillerson have projected a sense of urgency over the brutal Syria crisis but haven't told us how Assad needs to go nor how to protect displaced Syrians. It's also unclear at this time as to the Trump administration's plans for further action with Assad. For all appearances, it seems this policy is still evolving along with the President's change of heart on Syria and isolationism.
"We rededicate ourselves to holding to account any and all who commit crimes against the innocents anywhere in the world," Tillerson said on a visit to Sant'Anna di Stazzema on Monday. It's a Tuscan village where the Nazis massacred over 500 civilians.
So we shall see what lies in store for the world in the coming weeks. Nothing seems to look very bright.
