UNITED KINGDOM (OBSERVATORY) – The British government must seek a truce in Syria, and not follow the instructions of Washington, said the leader of the British opposition, Jeremy Corbyn.
“Bombs will not save lives and will not bring peace … Britain should play a leading role in securing an armistice, rather than follow Washington’s instructions and endanger the British military,” Corbin said in a statement.
He also noted that the Prime Minister, before making a decision on air strikes, had to obtain the consent of the parliament.
“Theresa May had to seek the approval of Parliament, and not follow Donald Trump,” he said.
“The government should do everything possible to persuade Russia and the United States to agree to an independent investigation led by the UN terrible chemotherapy last weekend, so that the perpetrators were brought to justice,” the Labor leader said.
Earlier, US President Donald Trump addressed the nation, in which he announced the strikes against Syria, the fact of which was also confirmed by Britain and France. The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported that on April 14, from 3.42 Moscow time to 5.10 Moscow time, aircrafts and ships of the US Armed Forces jointly with the Air Forces of Great Britain and France issued over 100 cruise missiles and air-to-ground missiles for objects of the military and civilian infrastructure of the Syrian Arab Republic, which was shot down by Syrian air defense means on approach to the targets.
