Boris Johnson calls Assad a 'monster' who needs 'decapitating'

Boris Johnson calls Assad a 'monster' who needs 'decapitating'

Turkish and British tests also have concluded that sarin or a substance similar to the deadly nerve agent was used in the Idlib attack.

On President Trump's orders earlier this month, USA warships launched between 50-60 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syria Government airbase where the warplanes that carried out the chemical attacks were based.

The former foreign minister, Alistair Burt, had pressed Mr Johnson on what his response would be to a similar request in the future and asked whether the Government felt "bound" by a previous vote in 2013.

However, Parliament had later approved a limited British air campaign against ISIS and other terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq.

"Definitely, 100 percent for us, it's fabrication", he said.

Turkish PM warns opposition against street protests
President Donald Trump has already called his Turkish counterpart in order to congratulate him on his victory. Turkey's main secularist opposition said it will launch an appeal against the result this afternoon.

Assad has denied the allegations that he was behind the April 4 attack in the opposition-held town of Khan Sheikhun in Syria's southern Idlib province.

"We know that they were overhead at 6.39am when according to all eye witness accounts the attack took place".

The Russian Ministry of Defense has released a statement regarding its investigation into the alleged use of chemical weapons in Khan Sheikhoun, Syria.

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons' Director General Ahmet Uzumcu said on Wednesday results of the analysis "indicate that sarin or a sarin like substance was used".

The entire stockpile was said to have been dismantled and shipped out under worldwide supervision in 2014 and destroyed.

Peggy Whitson, the first woman to command the ISS, will reach a landmark on Monday, as she will have spent 535 days in space. The launch was carried out from the Russian-leased launch facility of Baikonur , carrying 70 kilograms of food products.

President Trump's cruise-missile strike against Syria was celebrated by establishment politicians and media, their glee at striking a blow against Bashar al-Assad swamping any rational discussion of what happens next.

The missile strike was the first direct United States military action against Assad's forces since the start of Syria's civil war six years ago and precipitated a downward spiral in ties between Washington and Moscow.

'The essential thing will be to have a political process that preserves the institutions of the Syrian state while decapitating the monster'.

In response to a question about revoking British citizenship for Assad's wife, Asma, Johnson said individual files could not be discussed but he conceded she was on a United Kingdom government list of sanctioned individuals.

Mr Johnson urged China to use its influence with North Korea to find a peaceful resolution to mounting tensions, warning that Pyongyang was on the "path to self-destruction".
