British PM May defends strikes in Syria

British PM May defends strikes in Syria

May's government is looking to reinvigorate the Commonwealth, a 53-country network of mostly former British colonies, as it seeks to define its post-Brexit role in the world as a leader of free trade and active global citizen.

Opposition lawmakers are questioning the legality of her action, as the government customarily obtains parliamentary approval before using force.

The joint statement comes amid worsening relations between the two countries and Moscow, after Washington and London launched coordinated strikes against Russia's ally Syria. May has emphasized that the strikes were "limited" to only target Damascus's chemical weapons program.

He said Syrian and Russian officials who met the OPCW team in Damascus told them "that there were still pending security issues to be worked out before any deployment could take place".

Instead, it was the opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn who drew jeers and shouts when he suggested that May had simply followed the orders of U.S. President Donald Trump - something the British leader denied.

Corbyn said May should remember she "is accountable to this Parliament, not to the whims of the USA president".

"There is absolutely no question about their right to remain and I am very sorry for any confusion or anxiety felt", interior minister Amber Rudd told parliament during an emergency debate. "We have done it because we believe it was the right thing to do - and we are not alone". Pressed over the years-long clampdown on illegal immigration by the Conservative-led government, she also admitted that her department could "sometimes lose sight of the individual".

Mr Philippe told politicians that France's "riposte" was "proportionate" and sent a strong, clear message to dissuade Syria's Government from using chemical weapons.

In Luxembourg, the foreign ministers of the 28 European Union countries called for a political breakthrough involving regional players to put Syria on track to a peaceful solution for its seven-year conflict.

Secretary General Jagtar Singh said "We have reminded Prime Minister Modi of his words during his last visit to the United Kingdom in 2015 that a wall exists between Sikhs and India due to longstanding injustices and that he understood the pain Sikhs feel with India".

More than 70 delegations are expected at the April 24-25 donor conference for Syria in Brussels.
