Advisor to Pence withdraws Following Trump objects

"We could not be more grateful to all of you, who work every day to provide for the common defense for the United States of America", said Vice President Mike Pence.

Pence said he was grateful for the opportunity to meet with the Mexican president, although he made no reference to Pena Nieto's call for "mutual respect".

— Pence defended the president while building support among USA allies for the joint strikes with Britain and France.

"This is something we can not accept, the use of chemical weapons on civilians", Trudeau said, "and the global community needs to continue to stand extremely strongly as we continue to hold Syria accountable".

The issue boiled over on Friday, when Mr Pence and his senior staff were on an eight-hour flight to Peru to attend the Summit of the Americas.

The Syrian government has denied responsibility for the attack, while Russian Federation has pointed the finger at Israel and Britain.

Pence repeatedly praised the "strong leadership" of President Donald Trump and American allies in responding to the chemical attacks in Syria.

The meeting between the Pens and Trudeau was largely overshadowed by the air strikes conducted in Syria; in addition, both politicians condemned the alleged use by the Syrian government of chemical weapons on April 7, which killed at least 40 people and injured hundreds more.

Further Pence said that "minimum" chlorine was used in the attack along with serin.

The U.S., Canada and their allies have largely dismissed Damascus's denials, but have not said how they know that the Syrian government was responsible.

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.
