May: Britain strikes Syria for its national interests

UNITED KINGDOM (OBSERVATORY) –┬áTheresa May prepared a speech with which she intends to address the British Parliament. The document, in particular, explains why Britain joined the United States and France and struck Syria

.The Prime Minister of Britain assures that this was done in accordance with national interests, such as the prevention of the use of chemical weapons in Syria, the maintenance of a global consensus on the non-admission of chemical weapons. Such weapons can not be the norm ” neither in Syria, nor in the streets of Britain ,” said May.

“We did this, because we were sure that we were right ,” she said. May said that she spoke with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Italy’s Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and head of the European Council Donald Tusk. “They all supported the actions of Britain, France and the United States,” May assures.

It is expected that on April 16 the Speaker of the House of Commons, at the request of May, can hold an emergency debate in Syria.

On April 14, the United States, Great Britain and France struck missiles on Syria. They attacked government facilities, which, in their opinion, had to do with the production of chemical weapons. The participation of Britain was auxiliary.

Most of the missiles were shot down by Syrian air defense. Neither the military experts of the Russian Federation, nor local residents confirmed the fact of the chemical attack, which was the pretext for striking. President of Russia Vladimir Putin noted that the attacks on Syria are an act of aggression against a sovereign state.
