How the world reacted to America missile attack in Syrian

America successfully carried out the attacked but below is how people and leaders across the world are reacting to it.

Saudi Arabia 

Reaction: Supports strike 

The Saudi Foreign Ministry expressed its "full support ... for the American military operations on military targets in Syria," according to a statement from the Saudi Press Agency. 

An official source in the foreign ministry "noted the courageous decision of US President Donald Trump, which represents a response to crimes this regime has committed towards its people in light of the inaction of the international community in stopping it in its tracks." 

Involvement: Saudi Arabia is one of the main supporters of insurgent groups battling the Syrian regime and ISIS. It is also one of the nations participating in the US-led coalition's strikes. 

Desired outcome: Riyadh has pushed for Assad's ouster, and is not likely to settle for much less.


Reaction: Opposes strike

Russian President Vladimir Putin regards the US attacks on Syria as "an aggression against a sovereign state in violation of the norms of international law, and under a trumped-up pretext at that," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov was quoted as saying by Russian state-run news agency Sputnik.

This could bring new strain in the US-Russia relationship.

"Cooperation between the Russian and US militaries may be shut down after the US strike," said Viktor Ozerov, head of the defense committee in the Federation Council to Russian state news agency RIA.

He said Russia will demand an urgent UN Security Council meeting after the US strike, calling it "an act of aggression against a UN member."

Involvement: Russia is Syria's most powerful ally and has provided the military might behind President Bashar al-Assad's grip on the country. Russia has significant economic and military interests in the country, such as a Mediterranean naval base at Tartus, that it is determined to keep. Throughout the years, it has staunchly shielded Syria from UN resolutions in the UN Security Council.

Desired outcome: Putin has made it clear that as far as he's concerned, Assad isn't going anywhere for the time being. More broadly, some analysts see Putin using Syria as an opportunity to send a message that it's a force to be reckoned with -- one the United States and its allies can't ignore.


Reaction: Supports strike

''We welcome the US operation," said Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusogulu.

Turkey called the strikes "a positive response to the Assad regime's war crimes."

Ibrahim Kalin, Turkey's presidential spokesman, said in a statement: "The destruction of Shayrat air base marks an important step to ensure that chemical and conventional attacks against the civilian population do not go unpunished." He also called for a no-fly zone and the creation of safe zones in Syria.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had called Assad a "murderer" over the chemical weapons attack on a rebel-held town in Syria's Idlib province.

Involvement: The country has a long, porous border with Syria. Thousands of foreign fighters have flowed over it into Syria and hundreds of thousands of refugees have poured out the other way.

Bitterly opposed to Assad, the Turkish government has long supported Syrian rebels. The rise of ISIS and other Islamic extremist groups has seriously complicated matters for Erdogan, who permitted the US-led coalition to launch bombing raids against ISIS positions from Turkish territory.

Desired outcome: Turkey wants to get rid of Assad, remove the growing threat of ISIS and end years of destabilizing conflict along its southern border. But it also wants to stop the Kurds from carving their own state out of the current chaos.


Reaction: Opposes strike

China's Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, when addressing questions on the US strikes on Syria, said the country opposes the use of force in international affairs, but also reiterated its stance opposing the use of chemical weapons.

"China always opposes the use of force in international affairs and we advocate resolving disputes peacefully through dialogues. ... We always hold that the Syrian issue should be resolved through political means."

China's "Global Times," a state-sanctioned tabloid, published an editorial saying that in Trump's "first major decision on international affairs, his haste and inconsistency has left people with a deep impression."

Involvement: China's relationship with Syria is more nuanced. Like Russia, China has repeatedly blocked sanctions attempts against the Syrian regime -- leading to a perpetual stalemate at the UN body to take any serious action on Syria. It's also a trading partner with Syria. There's a bigger factor though: China opposes foreign intervention in Syria.

Desired outcome: China's position is that foreign countries shouldn't meddle in Syria's internal affairs, and perhaps for good reason. China has had its own share of international controversies over its policies with Tibet as well as allegations of human rights violations.


Reaction: Supports strike

Government spokesman Mohammad Momani said Jordan considers the strike "a necessary and appropriate response to the nonstop targeting of innocent civilians" with weapons of mass destruction.

Jordan reiterated its rejection and condemnation of the use of weapons of mass destruction, including the recent chemical attack against civilians in Khan Sheikhoun in Syria's Idlib province.

Momani called the chemical attack in Idlib province an "inhumane and heinous act." He repeated Jordan's support for all international efforts geared toward preventing future recurrence of using chemical weapons after Syria was declared free of them in the past.

Involvement: Jordan is part of the coalition fighting the Islamic State and has taken in hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees. That influx has changed the makeup of the oil-less nation, which shares a 233-mile border with Syria.

Desired outcome: Jordan's King Abdullah II, speaking at a news conference with President Donald Trump in Washington on Wednesday, said, "We need a political solution that ends the conflict in the country and preserves its unity and territorial integrity. "
