"Could not have had a better result".

Notwithstanding pervasive reports that chemical weapons attacks have been inflicted on Syrian civilians, Germany announces that it will not participate in a military response there.

Branding last week's alleged chemical attack the "crimes of a monster", Trump announced the military action against President Bashar al-Assad's regime in a White House address late Friday, defying fierce warnings from Damascus ally Russian Federation.


In a written statement on Saturday, Chancellor Angela Merkel underlined that the joint strike by the U.S., U.K., and France specifically aimed at destroying Syria's suspected chemical weapons capabilities and deterring further use of such banned weapons.

"Everything leads us to believe that (Assad) bears responsibility" for the Douma attack, Merkel said.
