DUBAI (Sputnik) – UK Prime Minister David Cameron announced on Monday that the UK parliament would vote on December 2 on whether the country will join a military campaign against Daesh in Syria.
"The Kingdom [of Saudi Arabia] is voicing support for strengthening efforts of [US-led] international coalition, including support for expansion of participation of the United Kingdom in military operations," the source told the Saudi Press Agency.
For more than a year the United Kingdom has been carrying out airstrikes against Daesh positions in Iraq as part of a US-led coalition of over 60 countries. The UK leader is currently trying to get support in the country’s parliament for a full expansion of its anti-terrorist military operation in Syria.
Russia has been conducting a separate aerial campaign against Daesh positions in Syria since September at the request of President Bashar Assad. The Russian government has outlawed the militant group on its territory, classifying it a terrorist organization.
