New tests indicate sarin used in Syria attack

21 April 2017, 02:56 | Terri Saunders

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.

Underlining an open support for US strikes, Johnson claimed it helped "create an opportunity to break the deadlock" and pave the way for a political settlement and a truce, following a succession of failed cease-fires.

On April 6th, the United States launched a military strike on a Syrian government airbase in response to a chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of civilians earlier in the week. Burt asked what the United Kingdom government's reaction would have been if, instead of just hitting Syria's Shayrat airfield on April 7, Washington made a decision to first enlist military help from Britain.

Former foreign minister Alistair Burt asked Johnson whether the government felt bound by a previous vote in 2013. After being raised in Syria, Hamza believes the impact of the attack was limited.

According to the Trump administration, the attack was created to stop the Assad's regime from using chemical weapons on his own people. At the time, the rebels accused the Syrian government of perpetrating a sarin gas attack in a Damascus suburb.

The Foreign Secretary has previously said there will be "no impunity" for the people responsible for the chemical weapons attack.

'The essential thing will be to have a political process that preserves the institutions of the Syrian state while decapitating the monster'.

Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov cast doubt on the impartial character of the OPCW fact-checking missions, entrusted with investigation of the alleged chemical attack, calling it "a very unusual coincidence" that they are both chaired by the British citizens.
