U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson Tuesday said Russia bore responsibility for recent chemical attacks by the Syrian government, which Moscow backs in the country's civil war."At a bare minimum, Russia must stop vetoing, or at the very least abstain, from future Security Council votes on this issue," he added.His comments came as diplomats from 29 countries met in Paris to push for sanctions and criminal charges against the perpetrators of chemical attacks in Syria.There have been at least 130 separate chemical weapons attacks in Syria since 2012, according to French estimates, with Daesh (ISIS) also accused of using mustard gas in Syria and Iraq.
