Clinton's remarks also came after Secretary of State John Kerry suggested earlier on Monday that if Assad turned over "every single bit of his chemical weapons to the international community in the next week" he could avoid military action. Russia also proposed on Monday that Damascus place its chemical weapons under international monitors to head off a confrontation.
"If the regime immediately surrenders it stockpiles to international control, as was suggested by Secretary Kerry and the Russians, that would be an important step," Clinton said. "It is important to note that this discussion that has taken hold today about potential international control of Syria's stockpiles only could take place in the context of a credible military threat by the United States to keep pressure on the Syrian government, as well those supporting Syria, like Russia." "I will continue to support [President Obama's] efforts and I hope that the Congress will as well," added Clinton, who said she met with Obama at the White House earlier on Monday. "The Assad regime's inhumane use of weapons of mass destruction...demands a strong response from the international community led by the United States."
Hillary Clinton's security staff get into a row with a traffic warden whilst waiting for her in London
It's reported that security staff working for the former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got embroiled in an argument with a London traffic warden after he handed out a parking ticket.
The Westminster City Council warden put an £80 penalty notice on the former US secretary of state’s silver Mercedes vehicle in Central London while she was attending an event at Chatham House. The row was caught on camera on Saturday by photographer Greg Brennan, who said five of her guards were waiting inside a Mercedes van next to her car at the time because it was raining.
Hillary Clinton returned to the campaign trail on Saturday to endorse her old friend Terry McAuliffe in the Virginia governor's race, urging voters to reject the "scorched earth" politics that led to the recent government shutdown.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told a gathering of 10,000 advocates for green construction Thursday that sustainability must be one of the country’s top priorities.
Clinton, considered an potential contender for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, pulled on her experience as first lady, a U.S. Senator and the nation’s top diplomat during a speech in Philadelphia at a conference at a conference presented by the U.S. Green Building Council. She told the conventioneers that they should continue to talk about their ideas in hopes of swaying more people that it makes ecological and financial sense.
“[In] developed countries, we still have to keep knocking barriers down to women’s full participation on boards of companies that make decisions about sustainability, in corporate suites where people make decisions about sustainability,” she said to cheers, speaking at a conference held by the U.S. Green Building Council. “Now I’m not one who will say automatically that having women involved makes a difference just by the fact of the women being there, but there’s growing evidence that corporations with women in leadership positions, as corporate executives, and in the board, are actually more focused on sustainability.”
