Canada declares its support for the military strike against Syrian positions
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Saturday his support for military strikes led by Washington, London and Paris against chemical weapons sites of the Syrian regime.
In a statement on his official Facebook page, Trudeau said his country supported the decision of the United States, the United Kingdom and France to take action against the Assad regime's ability to launch chemical weapons against its people.
Canada's condemnation of the use of chemical weapons in the Eastern Ghouta attack was confirmed, stressing the need for those responsible to be brought to justice.
Earlier in the day, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg announced his support for the military strikes led by Washington, according to a statement.
US President Donald Trump, in a televised speech on Saturday, ordered a military strike against targets of Bashar al-Assad's regime, according to US media.
The British Prime Minister, Teresa Mae, confirmed in a second televised speech that there was no alternative to using force to deter the Syrian regime.
This coincided with the announcement of the Elysee Palace to the French President Emmanuel Macaron, the forces of his country to intervene in Syria as part of a process with the United States and Britain to confront the arsenal of chemical weapons of the Syrian regime and reduce them.
At least 78 civilians were killed and hundreds wounded last Saturday by a chemical attack that the Syrian regime accused of carrying out on the city of Douma in the eastern Ghouta in the Syrian countryside.
