Vice President Mike Pence, attending an global summit on Saturday, claimed he backs President Trump's assertion earlier in the day from the afternoon which the US -led airstrikes that weekend at Syria led to "mission realized", And he warned Syrian president Russian Federation that it was "around the incorrect side of record". While attending the America summit at the Washington D.C. Pence said he supported the statement of US President Donald Trump referring to Syria attack as "mission accomplished" saying that Syria operation is "completely successful" as quoted by The Fox.

With reporters' cameras and tape recorders rolling, Trudeau told Pence that the airstrikes were "unfortunate, but necessary" to stop the Syrian government from launching further chemical-weapons attacks against civilians.

This was Pence's first media interaction after U.S. forces launched precision strikes against Assad regime targets associated with the use of chemical weapons in Syria. 'It's time for Russian Federation to get the message President Trump delivered last night.

Noting that "you're known by the company you keep", Pence said Russian Federation needs to join other nations in opposing the use of chemical weapons in Syria and "live up to the commitments they made".

There "will be a price to pay" if Syria ever uses chemical weapons again, as the USA is ready to take additional action, Pence told reporters travelling with him to Peru to attend the Summit of the Americas.
