British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson believes that it is necessary to return to military measures of solving the Syrian issue.
It is necessary to return to military measures of solving the Syrian issue, British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson said during his speech at a meeting of the Foreign Affairs Committee. According to the politician, negotiations with Russia on the future of the Syrian crisis have “run out of road,” and the West should take more “kinetic action.”
Johnson added that he sees the future of Syria without current president Bashar al-Assad, as well as believes that the coalition of rebels under the leadership of Saudi Arabia, known as the High Negotiation Committee (HNC), is an epitome of “progressive” values.
The Foreign Minister also expressed regret for the British Parliament voting against military intervention in Syria in 2013, and said that this decision was a “big step backwards.”
Not too long ago, Boris Johnson actively criticized the foreign policy of the UK. However, as soon as he formally joined the ruling political company, the logic of his speech has instantly changed, adapting to the classical rhetoric of the ‘supranational elites’, according to his populist-conformist psychotype.
Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for British Prime Minister Theresa May said that the UK is not planning to extend its military intervention in Syria.
“There are no plans for military action. We are working with the international community to look at how to bring the conflict to an end,” the spokeswoman said, answering a question about Johnson’s comments.
