Southern EU leaders say US strike on Syria 'understandable'

The leaders of southern EU nations said Monday that a US missile strike on a Syrian air base in retaliation for a suspected chemical attack was "understandable," as diplomatic tensions mount over the incident.


Gathered at a summit in Madrid on the EU as Britain prepares to leave the bloc, the leaders -- including Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and France's Francois Hollande -- also called on Brussels and London to first negotiate divorce terms before any future deal with the union.

"The strike launched by the United States on Shayrat Airfield in Syria had the understandable intention to prevent and deter the spread and use of chemical weapons and was limited and focused on this objective," the seven leaders said in a joint statement after the summit.
