British Foreign Secretary: Strikes are proof that the world has run out of patience with chemical use
UK Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to call for an emergency debate in Parliament and will say the strikes in Syria were in Britain's national interest and to "alleviate further humanitarian suffering caused by chemical weapons attacks"
Johnson: I want to stress we do not seek an escalation. We want to get our message over to Russia that our response is limited to saying no to chemical weapons
Johnson: No one wants to do this (Cold War), we had to do this to reenforce the point of chemical weapons. We want to engage but Russia gives us the signal to beware
Johnson: I was being clear that Porton Down knows that this was a military grade weapon of a type that had been stockpiled in the former Soviet Union. As the OPCW confirmed just this week, it was indeed military grade Novichok. Which had been stockpiled for assassination purposes by Russia
Boris Johnson: The PM will be making a statement in the House of Commons tomorrow which will be a chance for Parliament to hold the executive to account
Johnson: Contact with the Russians have not been good but there have been discussions at the P5 level. When it came to this particular action, we made it clear to Russia what we were trying to achieve and what we were not trying to achieve. It is a deranged suggestion to say that Britain was involved in the Salisbury incident and the attack in Douma
Johnson about Western attack on Syria: It was important, in the very strange relations post-Salisbury, to send a signal about the use of chemical weapons
Boris Johnson: I think it's important to understand the limits of these (chemical) strikes. It won't turn the tide of the war in Syria. We can hope that it will encourage Russia to bring forward Assad to the UN in Geneva
Boris Johnson: People around the world are saying enough to the use of chemical weapons the UK, France and America have stepped forward to vindicate that
British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson says will continue to put pressure on the Syrian government leader Assad to come to the negotiating table
