U.K. endorses Harper govt's proposal for anti-ISIL air strikes over Syria

March 28, 2015

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Britain’s foreign minister is praising the federal government’s proposal to conduct air strikes over Syria against militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

Philip Hammond, the U.K.’s secretary of state for foreign and commonwealth affairs, says he welcomes Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s intention to expand the Canadian operations against the radical Islamic militants.

Hammond made the comments after meeting with Foreign Affairs Minister Rob Nicholson in Mississauga, Ont.

The Conservative government recently announced a proposal to extend the military campaign in Iraq for up to one year and give Canadian troops the authority to conduct air strikes in Syria.

Up to 69 special forces advisers will also remain in the region to advise and assist Kurdish peshmerga forces in beating back the advance of ISIL militants.

The Conservative government has partly framed the need for the expansion as necessary to protect Canadians.
