British cabinet agrees 'need for action' in Syria

British cabinet agrees 'need for action' in Syria

British Prime Minister Theresa May should continue to work with the United States and France to deter the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government, government ministers agreed on Thursday.

The cabinet is expected to support May to join a possible military action by the USA and its allies against the Syrian regime without seeking a parliamentary approval.

Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said it is "vital that parliament has the chance to debate and decide in advance" of any military action, which he warned "risks a unsafe escalation of the conflict".

May has not reached a final decision on whether Britain would join any strikes by the United States and France in response to a suspected chemical attack, but wants to be able to act swiftly, the newspaper said.

Mrs May has said "all the indications" are that the Syrian regime of president Bashar al-Assad, which denies mounting a chemical attack, was responsible.

Action against the Syrian regime itself was ruled out in a parliamentary vote in 2013, and many MPs have called for a vote before any action this time.

Donald Trump says missiles "are coming".

She further expressed her disinterest towards the fact-finding mission conducted by the Organization of the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons while reiterating that as per the USA intelligence President Assad orchestrated the attack.

Corbyn has also evoked memories of the Iraq War, when lawmakers approved joining in the face of strong public opposition.

"But parliament must be involved before any military action is agreed". A YouGov poll showed just one in five members of the public support a strike on Syria. The Downing Street statement did not mention parliament, and a spokeswoman did not comment on those reports.

Syria's been fighting civil war for over seven years.

Conservative former London mayoral candidate Zac Goldsmith tweeted: "We need a clear response to the Syrian chemical outrage".

The Russian military on Friday said it had proof that an alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria's Eastern Ghouta was staged on orders from London.
