US ambassador to UN warns Assad after strikes with UK and French allies on targets associated with chemical weapons
- Syria strikes: what we know so far
Nato secretary general Jens Stoltenberg has said all members of the organisation back this morning’s airstrikes conducted by the US, the UK and France following a meeting of the North Atlantic Council – the principal political decision-making body of Nato.
The UK ambassador to the UN, Karen Pierce, told the security council meeting there had been “clear boundaries” in the action that had been taken in an attempt to avoid escalation.
She said repeated attempts to hold the Syrian regime to account had been met with Russian “obstruction and resistance”.
