Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has all but confirmed that Australia will be following the United States’ lead on the Syrian conflict, after President Donald Trump’s administration oversaw a missile strike on a Homs airbase earlier this afternoon.
Speaking to 3AW Radio following the strike, Turnbull said he “can’t go into any more detail” regarding Australia’s response to a nerve gas attack which killed scores of Syrian civilians earlier this week.
Regarding that response, Turnbull said Australia remains in “close and constant communication with our allies, in particular the United States.”
