France is urging Russia to join in renewed peace efforts after Western missile strikes on Syria aimed at punishing Bashar Assad for an alleged chemical attack, while the Syrian leader was said to have appeared unfazed Sunday in a meeting with Russian politicians.
Much like USA statements, Britain's foreign secretary Boris Johnson said there are no plans to launch additional military strikes against Syria, but that his country and its allies will consider further action if Assad uses chemical weapons against his people in the future. Calling the three-nation attacks an "act of aggression" against Syria, Russia has even issued a statement suggesting that retaliatory steps will be taken.

"So far, thank heavens, the Assad regime has not been so foolish to launch another chemical weapons attack", he said, adding that Britain and its allies "would study what the options were" in the event of another attack.
Haley said the United States successfully hit the heart of Syria's chemical weapons enterprise, and because of these actions, it is confident that it has crippled Syria's chemical weapons programme.
Russian President Vladimir Putin stated on Saturday that the strikes had been carried out in violation of norms and principles of the worldwide law.
"Important infrastructure was destroyed which will result in a setback for the Syrian regime".
Speaking on the BBC on April 15, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said that the strikes were about saying "enough is enough" over what he called the "barbaric" use of chemical weapons.

Syria condemned the attack as a "flagrant violation of the worldwide law", according to Syria's official SANA news agency.
