Speaking in Paris on Monday right after assembly French President Francois Hollande, Cameron stated the two leaders agreed to boost counterterrorism cooperation following the assaults. He named for greater European Union-extensive endeavours to share intelligence to quit extremists and offered the use of RAF Akrotiri on Cyprus for anti-Islamic Point out actions in Syria.
“The United Kingdom will do all in our electricity to help our friend and ally France to defeat this evil demise cult,” he said.
Cameron dropped a vote in Parliament two years back to allow assaults on Syria, and has been reluctant to even suggest a vote until finally he could be certain to acquire. The RAF is previously taking part in airstrikes in Iraq.
Cameron has argued that Britain’s “precision missions” would permit far better concentrating on and direct to fewer civilian casualties than American weapons. Britain’s arsenal consists of the Brimstone missile, whose technologies permits it to make certain accuracy against transferring targets, this sort of as gun vehicles utilised by Islamic Point out group militants.
