There will be price to pay for chemical weapons use: Pence

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence delivers a statement on January 22, 2018, in the Prime Minister's residence in Jerusalem.

He further mentioned of the NAFTA wall being built up at the US-Mexico border while saying that United States, Mexico, and Canada are close to renegotiating a new NAFTA deal.

Syria came under attack one week after a suspected chemical weapons attack hit the Syrian town of Douma near Damascus.

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

The unified front was presented during a highly anticipated meeting between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence on the sidelines of the Summit of the Americas in Peru's capital.

Pence attended the Summit when President Trump canceled his visit as he had to craft an official statement and take an action against the Syrian chemical attack.

The US and its allies France and Britain launched air strikes, targeting sites associated with Syria's chemical weapons capabilities.

"Last night, the objective of the mission of that (our) commander in chief gave our military forces was completely accomplished, with swift professionalism", Pence said in response to reporters' questions about whether Trump hastily overstated the mission's outcome.

Vice President Pence also addressed the recent airstrikes on Syria, thanking the American companies in the audience for creating missile technology.

Vice President Mike Pence says the topic of funding President Donald Trump's long-promised border wall did not come up in his meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto at an global summit in Peru.

While the crisis in Syria was front and centre, Trudeau and Pence also expressed optimism about the state of NAFTA negotiations, the results of which will have dramatic ramifications for the USA and Canada.
