As the world responded to the airstrike on a base in Syria

Statement of the UK government

The UK government fully supports the US action, which, in our opinion, provide an adequate response to the barbaric use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government and aimed at preventing further attacks.

Bahram Hashemi, the representative of Iranian foreign Ministry

Iran strongly condemns the missile attacks. Such measures reinforce the terrorists in Syria and complicate the situation in Syria and the region as a whole.

Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan

We support the determination shown by the US administration.

Jean-Marc Ayrault, Minister of foreign Affairs of France

This signal, which was given this warning. Future is not related to Bashar al-Assad, and the Americans marked the beginning of the explanation.

Marine Le Pen, candidate for the French presidency from the party “national front”

Before applying such strikes on Syria, the United States had to wait for the results of the international investigation. I’m a little surprised by what happened, because earlier, Donald trump has repeatedly stated that he did not intend to be the policeman of the world, but now he’s made it in this role.

Numan Kurtulmus, the Turkish Deputy Prime Minister

I hope that the US operation will help to ensure peace. While it is clear that this operation is limited. I think it is positive that the Syrian regime must somehow be stopped.

Malcolm Turnbull, Prime Minister of Australia

Is a proportionate and accurate response in order to stop the use of the airfield for the delivery of chemical weapons. Australia is not at war with the Assad regime, the US also made that very clear. As coalition partners we had been warned shortly before the attack, and we support the actions of the US.
