Johnson: Syrian war will continue despite strikes

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said the Syrian war will continue despite Western strikes targeting country's alleged chemical weapons facilities.

"I'm afraid that is the unhappy corollary of this that if we say we're limiting our action to chemical weapons... then, of course, it follows that the rest of the Syrian war must proceed as it will," Johnson told BBC.

Johnson also said the attacks by the United States, Britain and France were a "successful" response to an alleged series of chemical attacks in recent years. "Finally, the world has said enough is enough," he said and added that there were no current plans for further attacks.
