He also called the Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria as a "monster".

The Foreign Secretary was encouraged on Tuesday to explain how Assad could be punished for using chemical weapons without allowing a "virulent Islamist regime" to replace him.

Mr Johnson said he agreed with the wisdom of the remark from Julian Lewis, the Conservative chairman of the defence select committee.

"He said: "'We were not asked for specific support, but it is my belief, were it be a reasonable request in pursuit of similar objectives, then I think it would be very hard for the United Kingdom to say no".

Mr Johnson said the United States did not ask the United Kingdom for specific support ahead of that strike.

"We know beyond doubt that two Sukhoi-22 aircraft took off from Shayrat airfield where we know that chemical weapons are stored", Johnson said.

In 2013, the House of Commons voted against airstrikes in Syria and the USA, under President Barack Obama, also decided against direct military action against Mr Assad.

According to the United Nations, 11 million Syrians are missing or dead from the six year civil war.
