Russian Federation and Iran warn of 'consequences' as North Atlantic Treaty Organisation backs Syria bombing

Croatia Joined NATO Nine Years Ago

Commenting on the joint attack against Syrian military facilities by the United States, Britain and France, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg Saturday said the global community should have a collective and effective response to the recent use of chemical weapons in Syria.

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. The alliance's chief said that the strikes "degraded the capabilities of Syria to conduct new attacks".

US President Donald Trump on Friday launched precision air strikes on Syria in a combined operation with France and Britain.

"The use of chemical weapons is unacceptable, and those responsible must be held accountable", Stoltenberg said.

Digital license plates will soon be on the streets of Dubai
The rapidly growing city also announced it is investigating the possible use of flying hoverbike drones for its police force. Testing will begin next month, so expect to see a couple of digital plates rolling around Dubai . "I'm very, very curious".

"Strikes by US, France and United Kingdom make it clear that Syrian regime together with Russia & Iran can not continue this human tragedy, at least not without cost", Tusk posted on Twitter on Saturday. "NATO strongly condemns the repeated use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime".

Vladimir Putin said the strikes were an "act of aggression" that would have a "destructive" influence on worldwide relations.

"The EU will stand with our allies on the side of justice", he added. The allies put the blame of the attack on Damascus, while the Syrian leadership denied any involvement in the use of chemical weapons.

Saudi Arabia on April 14 expressed its full support for USA -led strikes on Syrian government military installations, saying they were a response to "regime crimes" against civilians.
