  • Foreign Ministers of the Group of Seven (G7) countries and several other West Asian countries spoke with one voice at a meeting in Lucca, Italy, condemning chemical attack in Syria that left 89 people dead.

  • The U.S. and its allies hold Syrian President Bhashar al-Assad responsible for the attacks.

  • The G7 also lent support to the U.S. for its attack on the Syrian government-controlled Shayrat airfield in Homs province.

  • While the G7 united to isolate Mr. Assad diplomatically and urged Russia to do the same, no agreement was reached on sanctions against Russia.

  • Some experts believe that the chemical attack and the U.S. strike may not change the situation in Syria dramatically.
