  • В НАТО решили что Россия готова к ядерному удару

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation says all 29 of its members in the alliance back the airstrikes on Syria as a effect of the country conducting a suspected chemical attack against its civilians last weekend.

Recalling the consistent North Atlantic Treaty Organisation condemnation of Syria's continued use of chemical weapons, the alliance chief said the alleged use of such weapons had been a clear breach of global norms and agreements.

Stoltenberg said that the strike "will reduce the regime's ability to further attack the people of Syria with chemical weapons". The attack evoked large-scale criticism of President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg supports strikes on Syria, the USA and its allies. North Atlantic Treaty Organisation was not involved in the strikes.

The NATO Secretary General on Saturday backed the joint strikes by the United States, the United Kingdom, and France targeting the Syrian regime's chemical weapons capabilities.

'Before the strikes took place last night, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies exhausted all other possible ways to address this issue through the UN Security Council by diplomatic and political means, ' he said. They also made clear that their military action was limited to the Syrian regime's facilities enabling the production and employment of chemical weapons.

Jeremy Corbyn has criticised the Prime Minister for not seeking parliamentary approval, adding that "bombs won't save lives or bring about peace".

At the same time, Stoltenberg expressed his conviction that those responsible for chemical attacks must be held to account.
