US plans fresh sanctions on Moscow as Johnson defends Syria strikes

17 April 2018

Foreign Minister Boris Johnson said there were now no plans for further attacks in Syria after Britain and its allies France and the U.S. launched air strikes on the regime's chemical weapons facilities.

Mr Johnson's comments echoed those of USA ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who told an emergency Security Council meeting that Mr Trump told her that if Syria uses poisonous gas again, "the United States is locked and loaded". There will be more.

"We don't want to see our country just spending all this money on the military while we're getting cutbacks in healthcare, education and housing", said Sale.

Or perhaps there would need to be a series of violations, as was the case before 7 April, prior to any USA action. "Hopefully he's gotten the message".

The White House said the leaders agreed the air strikes in Syria "were successful and necessary to deter" the future use of chemical weapons.

Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said troops would not be removed until ISIS was defeated, chemical weapons no longer threatened USA interests and it could ensure the monitoring of Iranian activity.

The bombings, hailed by US President Donald Trump as a success but denounced by Damascus and its allies as an act of aggression, marked the biggest intervention by Western countries against Mr Assad and his ally Russian Federation. Defensive effort of Syria was ineffective, he said.

Haley warned that the United States was "locked and loaded" if any new chemical attack was carried out in Syria.

"We put facts contrary to your myths", he said. "We can't control what a country does to its people".

The Syrian Scientific Research Establishment is one of the targets that were hit by USA missile strikes that hit Syria shortly before dawn on Friday.

He added that the Him Shinshar chemical-weapons bunker facility near Homs was targeted with seven missiles and was "successfully hit".

The action was in response to a recent deadly attack in the town of Douma.

"Last night, the United States along with our British and French allies showed the world that the United States will not sit idly by while the Syrian regime uses chemical weapons to murder and maim its own people". Western powers say chemical substances, most likely chlorine and sarin, were used in the attack and killed at least 40 civilians.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry Saturday condemned what it called "the brutal American-British-French aggression. which constitutes a flagrant violation of worldwide law".

On Friday evening, President Donald Trump ordered a military attack against Syrian President Bashar Assad.
