UK Prime Minister Theresa May did not seek approval from the Assembly before ordering cruise missile strikes against Syria, Jeremy Corbyn has said.
Corbyn who is the leader of British opposition was quoted by Reuters as saying the PM should have sought permit before taking such action.
“Bombs won’t save lives or bring about peace. This legally questionable action risks escalating further,” Corbyn, a veteran anti-war campaigner, said.
“Britain should be playing a leadership role to bring about a ceasefire in the conflict, not taking instructions from Washington and putting British military personnel in harm’s way.
“Theresa May should have sought parliamentary approval, not trailed after Donald Trump.”
