Mixed Reactions Worldwide to US-Led Strikes Against Syria

International reaction to Friday's strikes against Syria has been mixed.

U.S. allies have responded pretty positively.  Canada ,  Germany  and  Turkey  came out in support of the strikes.  NATO's Secretary-General  Jens Stoltenberg has also expressed his support for the strikes.  None of those countries actually participated in the strikes.

Canada's  Prime Minister Justin Trudeau  and  Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel  had already ruled out participating in military interventions in Syria ahead of the strikes.

But Russia and Iran, Syria's main allies,  condemned the attacks .

Iran's leader called the U.S., French and British heads of state criminals.

And Russia  has called the attacks  an "act of aggression against a sovereign state."  China's foreign ministry also condemned the Syrian strikes and said the U.S.-led coalition violated international law by bypassing the United Nations Security Council Russia also called for an emergency meeting of the U.N.

Security Council.

A number of council members voiced concerns Saturday that the U.S., France and the U.K. strikes violated international law.
