Syria Strikes – Trump Garners Support From All Major EU Countries For Action

Whereas US actions against Middle Eastern countries in the past would have gotten a cold shoulder from some EU governments, it seems that the White House Administration of US President Donald Trump has garnered broad support for the actions of this weekend against the regime of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.

German Chancellor Ms Angela Merkel, not known to be the biggest fan of Mr Trump, stated that the actions were ‘necessary and appropriate’ and that the military action led by the US was a guarantee “to ensure the effectiveness of the international ban of chemical weapons use and to warn the Syrian regime of further violations.”

Spain, another major European nation, stated via its Foreign Minister Mr Alfonso Dastis that “the use of chemical weapons is a crime against humanity, nothing can justify it. The strikes carried out in Syria by the US, France and the UK are legitimate and proportionate.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en-gb"><p lang="es" dir="ltr">Un ataque con armas químicas es un crimen contra la humanidad. Nada puede justificar tal atrocidad.<br>La acción llevada a cabo en Siria por Estados Unidos, Francia y Reino Unido esta madrugada es legítima y proporcionada, limitada en su objetivo.</p>&mdash; Alfonso Dastis (@AlfonsoDastisQ) <a href="">14 April 2018</a></blockquote>

European President Mr Donald Tusk claimed meanwhile that the 28-member bloc would stand with the US on ‘the side of justice’.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en-gb"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Strikes by US, France and UK make it clear that Syrian regime together with Russia &amp; Iran cannot continue this human tragedy, at least not without cost. The EU will stand with our allies on the side of justice.</p>&mdash; Donald Tusk (@eucopresident) <a href="">14 April 2018</a></blockquote>

Lastly, the official head of NATO, Mr Jens Stoltenberg, also stated that he welcomed the attack, explaining the action “will reduce the regime’s ability to further attack the people of Syria with chemical weapons.”

Though many were critical in Europe at the onset of Mr Trump’s presidency, it is by now clear he has the broad support from all major European powers when it comes to dealing with the Middle East and Russia.
