TOKYO, Japan, Apr 10 (NNN-KUNA) - Japan is examining the legitimacy of the US military air strikes against Syria, on Apr 7, a top government spokesman said, Monday.
"Japan is not a party, involved in US military operations, and we are hearing their views, about the justification for the strikes under international laws," Chief Cabinet Secretary, Yoshihide Suga, told a press conference.
The US launched cruise missiles at Syrian military airfield, after President Bashar Al-Assad allegedly used chemical weapons that killed dozens of Syrian civilians, including children.
Suga also said that, Japan received no explanation from the US side, of the legitimacy of the air strikes, during a telephone conversation between US President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Abe on Sunday.
In their talks, Abe pledged Japan's support for Washington's determination to play a role in deterring the proliferation and use of chemical weapons.-- NNN-KUNA
