He said that the United States, France and the United Kingdom had coped well with the missile strikes.
In his words: “A perfectly executed strike last night. Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military. Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!”
As reported, the armed forces of the United States, Britain and France on April 14 inflicted air strikes on a number of facilities in Syria related to the development and use of chemical weapons. The media reported death of at least three person.
The airstrikes were necessitated by allegations of chemical attacks by the Syrian regime. 75 people died from the attacks, which the West blamed on Bashar Assad, as his Russian allies.
NATO, the EU, as well as the Czech Republic, Turkey and Ukraine have already spoken in support for the U.S.-led strikes.
At the same time, Damascus described the attacks as a gross violation of international law.
Belarus also strongly condemned it. In turn, Russia stated that it has convened an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council.
