Russian Federation must end "blind support" for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and help find a political solution to the six-year Syrian civil war, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Tuesday.

"We were not asked for specific support, but it is my belief-I stress that no such decision has yet been taken-that were such a request to be made in future and were it to be a reasonable request in pursuit of similar objectives, it would be very hard for the United Kingdom to say no", the top British diplomat said, without elaborating.

On President Trump's orders earlier this month, us warships launched between 50-60 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syria Government airbase where the warplanes that carried out the chemical attacks were based.

Denying the allegations, Damascus argues that the incident on April 4 was a result of an air strike hitting a chemical depot belonging to militants fighting the Syrian government.

The US airstrike this month was the first direct military action taken against President Assad by the US.


Johnson revealed that it would be very hard for the United Kingdom to turn down the U.S. if they requested support in Syria.

Former foreign minister Alistair Burt asked Johnson whether the government felt bound by a previous vote in 2013.

"This administration attacked the Syrian government within 48 hours, said Hamza". After being raised in Syria, Hamza believes the impact of the attack was limited.

The global chemical weapons watchdog was quoted as saying Sarin or similar toxin was used in Syria attack.

Lavrov argued that composition of the missions "runs contrary to the principles of an worldwide organization, the structures of which must be maximally balanced".
