Merkel: Germany will not participate in strike on Syria

German Chancellor Angela Merkel ruled out German participation in a possible strike on Syria. She stated this at a meeting with Prime Minister of Denmark Lars løkke Rasmussen, reports the Süddeutsche Zeitung.

However, Merkel stressed that Germany considers it necessary to indicate that the use of chemical weapons is unacceptable.

9 April, the German authorities condemned the use of chemical weapons in the Duma. Berlin noted that “the circumstances of the attacks” indicate the involvement of the regime of Bashar al-Assad. The evidence indicates that the Syrian regime once again has access to chemical weapons, said in an official statement.

Similar statements were made by the leaders of the United States, Britain and France. The US President Donald trump has promised to solve the issue of possible missile strikes on positions of government troops in Syria.

The Syrian government and its allies Russia and Iran, deny the fact of a chemical attack and called the information a provocation.

About possible strikes on Syria, also said the Prime Minister, Theresa may, and the President of France Emmanuel macron. Trump on April 11 in his Twitter threatened to “new and “smart” missiles,” which will be released on targets in Syria. At the same time next day the American leader said that the attack could happen “very soon or not so soon.”
