UK, Germany: No air strikes

11 Sep, 2014

A day after President Obama tells¬†American that the US will be joined by “a broad coalition of partners,” Britain and Germany announce they will not be participating in airstrikes against ISIS.¬†British foreign secretary Philip Hammond says Parliament decided against participating in airstrikes in 2013, and it won’t be “revisiting” the matter. German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said his country would not participate either.

To be quite clear, we have not been asked to do so and neither will we do so.
