UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) – The repetition of the attacks by the United States and the coalition on Syria will lead to a more severe reaction on the part of those who advocate respect for international law, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said.
“If something like this happens in the future, it will only exacerbate the disengagement of healthy forces in the international community.” I am sure that other groups will also join the group of countries responsible for international law, and I believe this group of healthy forces will give everything more resolute political resistance of this kind to attempts at the foundations of international relations,” Ryabkov said.
The United States, Britain and France hit rocket attacks on Syrian government facilities Saturday morning, which, according to the West, are used to produce chemical weapons. The coalition issued 103 missiles on Syria, of which 71 missiles were shot down by Syrian air defense.
President Vladimir Putin described the attacks as an act of aggression against a sovereign state, despite the fact that neither Russian military experts nor local residents confirmed the fact of the chemical attack, which became the pretext for strikes.
