PARIS, Nov 23 – British Prime Minister David Cameron said in Paris on Monday that he was convinced the UK should carry out military air strikes alongside France and other partners in Syria in an effort to defeat Daesh.
“Later this week I will set out in parliament our comprehensive strategy for tackling Daesh,” Cameron told a joint news conference with French counterpart Francois Hollande.
“I firmly support the action that President Hollande has taken to strike Daesh in Syria and it is my firm conviction that Britain should do so too.”
The statement comes after Cameron’s remarks earlier this month on seeking lawmakers’ approval to carry out airstrikes against Daesh militants in Syria.
The UK prime minister added that he would step up efforts to share intelligence with France and other European partners, adding that he planned to present a comprehensive strategy to defeat Daesh to parliament later this week.
Hollande said that France planned to intensify its air strikes on Daesh targets in Syria.
