Syria, U.N. Secretary-General Discuss U.S. Aggression on Syria

Syrian Ambassador to the United Nations Bashar al-Jaafari met with U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to discuss the recent U.S. aggression on Syria, as well as plans to open investigations into the attacks on Khan Sheikhoun and Shayrat air base.

During a meeting on Tuesday, Guterres condemned Saturday’s bombing which took place in the Al-Rashideen area in western Aleppo. Buses carrying locals from the besieged towns of Kefraya and Fouaa were struck by a suicide bomber, killing more than 120 people.

Guterres stressed the U.N.’s keenness to make the political process a success through the Geneva track, adding that the international body will work to limit the impact of recent attacks on political talks.
