US Security Adviser Reaffirms Pressure on N. Korea

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov

"So the time is now, we think, to act against Iran", he said.

President Trump's national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, acknowledged on Saturday that the evidence that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election is now "incontrovertible" in light of Friday's Justice Department indictment of 13 Russian nationals for "information warfare" during the US election.

"Public accounts and photos clearly show that Assad's chemical weapons use is continuing", McMaster said at a major worldwide security conference taking place in Munich.

HR McMaster speakss at the Munich Security Conference in Munich, Germany, February 17, 2018. Furthermore, he claimed, Russian Federation has failed in its efforts, in part because the U.S.is "becoming more and more adept at tracing the origins of this espionage and subversion".


He cited Russian Federation and China as Iran's biggest trading partners, but also included Japan, South Korea and Germany. In January, it placed new sanctions on the country.

President Trump has famously ridiculed the agreement, however.

"Public accounts and photos clearly show that Assad's chemical weapons use is continuing", McMaster said, although he did not specify which public accounts or pictures he was referring to. "It is time for all nations to hold the Syrian regime and its sponsors accountable for their actions".

"We know that Syria and North Korea are not the only rogue states developing, using, spreading risky weapons", said McMaster.
