Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, has repeated that Britain may support future US military campaigns in Syria. The US launched a missile attack in early April 2017 in response to a chemical weapons attack, with future attacks remaining possible.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme Johnson said:
“I think it would be very difficult if the US has a proposal to have some sort of action in response to a chemical weapons attack. If they come to us and ask for our support – whether it’s with submarine-based cruise missiles in the Med… in my view – and I know it’s also the view of the Prime Minister, it would be difficult for us to say no”.
