Fight against Daesh – Vote by the British House of Commons – Statement by Laurent Fabius (02 décembre 2015)

I welcome the vote by the British House of Commons authorizing an intensification of the United Kingdom’s military efforts in the fight against Daesh [so-called ISIL] by extending them to Syria.

Initial operations took place in the night.

Through this vote and these actions, the UK is signaling its determination to combat Daesh. Two weeks after the November 13 attacks, this is a concrete demonstration of solidarity with our country.
