“Our Syria strategy has not changed, however, the Syrian regime has forced us to take action based on the repeated use of chemical weapons,” Hayley added.

After an emergency meeting of the North Atlantic Council at NATO headquarters in Brussels, Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg acknowledged the strike offered no guarantee against future chemical attacks by Assad.

NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg added: ““I am not saying the attacks last night solve all problems but compared to the alternative — do nothing — this was the right thing to do,”

“It deters further attacks; it degrades the ability of the Syrian regime to conduct new attacks; and it’s a way to support the ban on chemical weapons.” he added.

“The area where the chemical weapon attacked happened,” he said, “is an area where the Assad regime operates with the support of Russia.” said Stoltenberg.

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin condemned the attacks and accused the western powers of an attack on a “sovereign state.”

The attack was an “act of aggression against a sovereign state … committed without a mandate from the U.N. Security Council and in violation of the U.N. Charter and norms and principles of international law.”
