Moscow [Russia] Apr 27 (ANI): Pakistan Defence Minister Khawaja Asif termed the United States' missile strike against Syria as 'foreign interference'. Asif made this statement on the sidelines of the ongoing VI Moscow Conference on International Security, reported Russian news agency Sputnik. "We are against any foreign intervention in Syria. This was a foreign intervention. The Syrians should be left to decide what government they want to have. I think it is their fundamental right," he said. "It is for the international investigators to decide whether it was an attack or not," Asif added. On April 6, the United States conducted a missile strike against the Syrian government's Ash Sha'irat airbase in the Idlib province in response to an alleged chemical weapon attack by the Bashar al-Assad regime on civilians, which left dozens, including children, dead and many others injured.
