Britain explained the strike to Syria
The goal of a strike of Britain, the United States and France in Syria was not the disruption of Russia's strategic plans. This was stated by the British Defense Minister Gavin Williamson, reports Financial Times.
"It's not about interfering in a civil war, not about changing the regime. This is an aiming strike, which does not increase tensions in the region," the minister said.
According to Williamson, Britain would prefer that Russia use its influence and exert pressure on the Syrian regime. "So it will permanently stop the illegal use of chemical weapons," the politician added.
Earlier, on April 14, the armed forces of the United States, Great Britain and France released over 100 cruise missiles and air-to-surface missiles over Syrian territory. Both military and civilian objects were attacked.
