NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has commented on last week's missile launch, carried out by the US, the UK and France. His remarks are simply astonishing.
"This operation was aimed at reducing the ability of Damascus to use chemical weapons, the United Nations' investigation of the chemical weapons use was impeded by Russia. This is a clear signal to the Assad regime, Russia and Iran," NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg was quoted as saying by the Turkish NTV channel.
He also noted that NATO does not oppose a political dialogue with Moscow.
"We were pleased to receive the support that was provided to this operation from Turkey," the NATO Secretary General reportedly stated.
On April, 14, the US, the UK and France launched rocket attacks on Syrian government facilities which they believe are used to produce chemical weapons. From 3:42 a.m. to 5:10 a.m. Moscow time they released over 100 missiles on Syria, most of which were shot down by Syrian air defenses.
