Trump, May agree use of chemical weapons should 'not go unchallenged'

United States President Donald Trump and United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May discussed on Thursday the alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma, near Damascus, Syria. They agreed it is "vital that the use of chemical weapons did not go unchallenged" and that the Syrian regime, which is held responsible for the incident by the two counties, "established a pattern of dangerous behavior."

"The prime minister spoke to president Trump about Syria this evening.They agreed that the Assad regime had established a pattern of dangerous behavior in relation to the use of chemical weapons," was said in a statement released by Downing Street. "They agreed it was vital that the use of chemical weapons did not go unchallenged, and on the need to deter the further use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime. They agreed to keep working closely together on the international response." Earlier, May's cabinet concluded that "action" in Syria is necessary, while Trump said he is monitoring the situation "very very seriously, very closely" and that his administration will reach a decision on a potential military intervention "fairly soon."
