Divided over Syria, Putin and Tillerson Meet

The Associated Press reports today that Russian President Vladimir Putin met with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in Moscow. The meeting was strained by the dispute concerning the nerve gas release in the city of Khan Sheikhoun, Syria that killed more than 80 people and injured hundreds more. The US and Russia disagree over the details of the chemical weapon release. The US blames Syrian President Bashar Assad for attacking civilians with aircraft and releasing the nerve agent while Russia says it has proof this was a false flag operation perpetrated to turn the international community against Assad.
