WARSAW (Reuters) - The Polish government supported a U.S. air strike on a Syrian airfield, a cabinet spokesman said on Friday.
“The United States for sure are a guarantor of world peace and order. And there are situations when you need to react, situations when you need to take actual action,” spokesman Rafal Bochenek told state television TVP Info.
“We have seen the abuses of the Syrian regime over the last years - no one had reacted to that,” Bochenek said.
U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he ordered missile strikes against a Syrian airfield from which a deadly chemical weapons attack was launched, declaring he acted in America’s “vital national security interest”.
