ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called U.S. President Donald Trump's warning to the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad on its reported planned chemical weapons attack a "serious warning" that "should be heard." Guterres took the question from a reporter during a visit to the U.S. Department of State in Washington on Wednesday (June 28) after being welcomed by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. U.S officials said the Syrian government appeared to heed the warning. The White House said on Monday (June 26) Assad and his forces would "pay a heavy price" if it followed through with a chemical weapons attack.
