“We understand the necessity of the US actions and trust the information provided to us by the Allies,” the minister told BNS.

In his words, the regime of Syrian President Bashar al Assad accused by the Western world of holding the deadly chemical attack in guerrilla-controlled territories has crossed all possible limits.

“Persuasion has certain limits, therefore, the actions are fully comprehensible. In this case, this was a targeted attack on the base from where the crime was launched,” said Linkevičius.

By decision of US President Donald Trump, the United States launched 59 Tomahawk missiles on the Syrian air base in early hours of Friday Lithuanian time. Washington believes the base was the origin of the chemical attack that killed dozens of people, including children.

Syrian and Russian leaders have dismissed the US attack as aggression.
