An aide to Johnson said: "It is a shame the Lib Dems would rather snipe and be silly when the United States and United Kingdom are trying to work on a plan to help the innocent people of Syria and stop a devastating civil war".
Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani said in a phone call that aggressive USA actions against Syria were not permissible and violated worldwide law, the Kremlin said yesterday. "It's important that we keep our priorities straight". "And once the ISIS threat has been reduced or eliminated, I think we can turn our attention directly to stabilizing the situation in Syria".
The Trump administration had seemed ambivalent over whether it would push for regime change in Syria.
Ben Cardin of Maryland says the administration hasn't been clear on next steps and whether it would escalate a USA response if Syrian President Bashar Assad continues his assault on rebel forces with conventional weapons. She said late last month that "our priority is no longer to sit there and focus on getting Assad out".
Trump launched the 59 Tomahawk missiles early on Friday morning in revenge for Syria's chemical attack which left 79 people dead.
The United States confirmed on Monday that Russian Federation knew in advance about Syria's deadly chemical-weapons attack - as the Kremlin announced that Vladimir Putin would not meet with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson when Tillerson visits Moscow this week. But there have been repeated allegations of chemical weapons use by the government since then. Syria's closest allies, Russian Federation and Iran, have defended Damascus against the allegations of chemical weapons use, with Moscow saying a conventional strike hit a rebel depot containing "toxic substances".
Trump ordered the missile strikes on Shayrat after rescue workers said at least 100 people were killed and hundreds of others wounded in the chemical strikes at Sheikhoun.
Samsung's Siri rival won't be ready for new Galaxy phone's US launch
Samsung has confirmed that it will be shipping the Galaxy S8 without one of the device's hallmark feature - Bixby voice assistant. Bixby Voice would be the main competitor to Apple's Siri assistant, which become more and more useful over the years.
The Kremlin said the phone call took place on Iran's initiative.
Trump further argued that Assad's use of chemical weapons on civilians makes the Syrian leader "an animal".
President Donald Trump says Russian President Vladimir Putin is backing an "evil person" in Syria.
Earlier on Friday, the USA targeted the Shayrat air base in Homs Province with almost 60 Tomahawk missiles, killing six Syrian soldiers and nine civilians, including four children, and destroying nine warplanes, according to the Syrian government.
In the past, Russian Federation and Iran have labeled Assad's opponents as "terrorists".
The US retaliatory strike marked the first time the United States has intervened directly in the Syrian civil war against Assad's Russian- and Iranian-backed regime, raising questions about Washington's next steps.
The United States has been warned it crossed a "red line" with its missile strikes on Syria and faces retaliation in response to future aggression against Bashar Assad.
