    LONDON (Sputnik) The UK government decided to hold the vote on extending airstrikes against terrorists to Syria on December 2, British Prime Minister David Cameron said Tuesday.

    "The Cabinet has accepted my recommendation to have a vote in the Commons tomorrow on military action in Syria as part of a wider strategy," Cameron wrote in his official Twitter account.
