Trump wants to put American on moon again, Pence tells space summit

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence left shakes hands with Peru's President Martin Vizcarra before the Summit of Americas inauguration ceremony in Lima Peru Friday

But that was before the U.S., Britain and France launched the joint airstrikes Friday in retaliation for a suspected chemical-weapons attack on April 7 that killed 43 people and injured hundreds more in a rebel-held enclave near Damascus.

While attending the America summit at the Washington D.C. Pence said he supported the statement of US President Donald Trump referring to Syria attack as "mission accomplished" saying that Syria operation is "completely successful" as quoted by The Fox. He said the USA and its allies "will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons against innocent men, women, and children".

"This was the morally right act to take", he said.

Pence's team finally got wind of the controversy and after his plane landed, the vice president called Trump to plead Lerner's case.

There were nearly daily calls between France, the United Kingdom and the U.S., he said in response to a question.

"The goal of this meeting is not only to address the issue of NAFTA, but also to talk about the bilateral relationship, which should continue to be based on cooperation and mutual respect", Pena Nieto said.

At a minimum, Chlorine was used and he said that an investigation could show that Sarin was also used.

Noting that "you're known by the company you keep", Pence said Russian Federation needs to join other nations in opposing the use of chemical weapons in Syria and "live up to the commitments they made".

The U.S., Canada and their allies have largely dismissed Damascus's denials, but have not said how they know that the Syrian government was responsible.
