President: Poland supports Western strikes on Syria

Poland supports the missile and air strikes on Syria by the US, UK and France because they were needed and decent states can not allow innocent people to be killed in chemical attacks, President Andrzej Duda said on Saturday.


In the early hours of Saturday, US, British and French forces carried out a series of missile and air strikes against Syrian targets in response to the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government in the besieged town of Douma, Eastern Ghouta, on April 7, which left more than 60 people dead.


"We are a member of the coalition, we are a member of NATO and of course we support the activities undertaken by our allies, particularly when we are informed and consulted with about these matters, it was no surprise to me that such an intervention did take place," the president told reporters on Saturday.


Decent countries "can not allow innocent people to be killed with chemical weapons,"  Andrzej Duda stressed. (PAP)
