The non-binding measure, which passed 392-3, denounced a litany of crimes perpetrated by the Assad regime, including having committed "widespread torture and rape, employed starvation as a weapon of war, and massacred civilians, including through the use of chemical weapons, cluster munitions, and barrel bombs;...

A main point of that meeting "was telling Russian Federation to use its power to rein in the regime", she said.

Although the State Department cast its unusual news conference as an effort to press Assad's key backers, Russian Federation and Iran, it also underscored Trump's lack of a strategy for stopping Syria's violence.

On May 15, ahead of the Geneva peace talks aimed at trying to find a solution to the Syria conflict which has killed more than 320,000 people since it broke out more than six years ago, United Nations mediator Staffan de Mistura said that the discussions in Switzerland should benefit from a tighter format - and the recent Astana agreement to create the de-escalation zone.
