British Prime Minister David Cameron has ruled out the prospect of having any British military involvement against Bashar al-Assad’s regime following the speculation that MPs could be allowed to re-vote after the happenings in U.S.
Mr. Cameron has told during exchanges with Labour leader Ed Miliband at Prime Minister’s Questions that he respected the outcome of previous week’s vote effectively ruling out U.K. contribution in any military response to the chemical weapons attack in Damascus.
He has repeated that he “won’t be bringing back plans for British participation in military action” in the future.
Mr. Cameron has cautioned that the rest of the world is letting down the people of Syria. However, the British government will continue to exercise its “diplomatic muscle” to press for a peaceful resolution to the conflict through putting the President Assad must under real pressure from the international community.
Mr. Prime Minsiter’s comments came as Sir Peter Tapsell, the Conservative MP for Louth and Horncastle, warned of the possibility of “Armageddon” if the American “illegally bombard the Assad forces”.
The Prime Minister has also showed the willingness to hold peace talks to resolve the issue.
The Labour leader, Ed Miliband has said during previous week’s vote was not about Britain “shirking its responsibilities” but about preventing a “rush” to war.
He has suggested that the key was now bringing other countries to the table – including Iran – to help negotiate a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
