April 12, 2018

Malcolm Turnbull has strongly warned Russia to investigate a chemical weapons attack in Syria.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has issued Russia a strong warning to ensure the latest chemical weapons attack in Syria is investigated.

Russia has vetoed the United Nations Security Council investigating the attack in Douma, where up to 80 people were killed and hundreds more injured.

"We call on Russia to use its enormous influence in Syria to ensure that this is investigated and those who have been responsible are brought to justice," Mr Turnbull told Triple M radio on Thursday.
