While in Peru, Pence briefs USA lawmakers on Syrian strikes

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence right shakes hands with Venezuelan opposition leader Julio Borges during a meeting at the residence of the US ambassador in Lima Peru Friday Russia on wrong side of Syria war: Mike Pence warns Putin

With reporters' cameras and tape recorders rolling, Trudeau told Pence that the airstrikes were "unfortunate, but necessary" to stop the Syrian government from launching further chemical-weapons attacks against civilians.

Calling the strike "successful" and an "extraordinary success", Trump said the strike "degraded and crippled" and "significantly eroded" Syria's ability to use chemical weapons.

Seated alongside Trudeau, Pence said there was a "real possibility" the USA could reach a deal with Canada and Mexico on NAFTA "within the next several weeks".

US Vice President Mike Pence has threatened that Washington is set to respond to possible retaliatory moves against its missile attacks on Syria, by Damascus or its allies, specifically Russian Federation and Iran.

Pence, however, justified the attack by merely stating that the U.S. did not act alone, claiming that other leaders at the Latin American summit had both publicly and privately expressed support for the Syria bombardment. Maduro has been barred from the summit over his plans to hold a presidential election that the opposition is boycotting and that many foreign governments consider a sham.




The discussions on the sidelines of the Summit of the Americas in Peru came as USA officials said they believed they were narrowing differences over a revised North American Free Trade Agreement, 24 years after its inception.

"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.

The US Vice President said the topic of funding for the border wall did not come up in the meeting, while acknowledging that the two countries have differences.

Hours after Trump hailed the missile strike targeting the Syria's suspected chemical weapons - tweeting, "Mission Accomplished!" Left unsaid was whether Pence's overtures might eventually lead to a joint Trump-Pena Nieto meeting, their first. "We are very close to the kind of breakthrough on issues of immigration, drug interjection" that will be of benefit to both sides, Pence said. Pence then attended a banquet hosted by Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra.
