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.

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.
