US, UK and France agree on strong response to Syria chemical weapons attack

British Prime Minister Theresa May joined calls from US President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron for a strong response to reports of a chemical weapons attack in Syria.

Speaking after telephone calls with both leaders, Ms May said the chemical weapons attacks in Syria where “utterly reprehensible.”

The Prime Minister’s spokeswoman said, “They agreed that the international community needed to respond to uphold the worldwide prohibition on the use of chemical weapons.”

US President Donald Trump, on Monday, said the US response would be quick and forceful once responsibility for the attacks was established.

At least 60 people were killed and over 1,000 injured in Saturday’s suspected chemical attack on Douma according to a Syrian relief group, reports Reuters.
