Trump praised China for its decision to abstain vote on syria

Vastavam Web: President Donald Trump has praised China for its decision to abstain from voting on a UN Security Council resolution condemning last week’s chemical attack on civilians in Syria, terming it an honour for the US.”I think it’s wonderful that they abstained. As you know, very few people expected that. And no, I was not surprised that China did abstain,” Trump told reporters at a joint White House news conference with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.Later, a senior White House official described this as a positive step.

China’s abstention at the UN was “another significant victory for all civilised peoples because it really showed how isolated the Assad regime and its international sponsors” are, the official told reporters.”We have a very big problem in North Korea. And as I said, I really think that China’s going to try very hard and has already started, trump said.
