NATO chief says Russia obstruction forced attack

NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg says Russia's obstruction course at the UN Security Council left NATO's US British and French allies no option but to launch a missile attack on key Syrian installations.


Stoltenberg said after a debriefing of NATO ambassadors by the three allies Saturday that "before the attack took place last night, NATO allies exhausted all other possible ways to address this issue to the UNSC by diplomatic and political means."


He added, "But since this was blocked by Russia, there was no other alternative."


Stoltenberg says, "I am not saying that the attacks last night solved all problems but compared to the alternative to do nothing this was the right thing to do."
