MOSCOW: Russia would welcome British military involvement in the Syria conflict if it targets terrorists but not the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.

British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson said on Thursday the country should consider military involvement in the Syrian conflict, but that any action would need to be part of a coalition led by the United States.
