British Prime Minister David Cameron announced plans Wednesday to push the United Nation’s Security Council to adopt a resolution on Syria as the United States and the international community moves closer to launching a strike against the government of President Bashar Assad.
The regime of Mr. Assad has denied that it used chemical weapons, but others say it was undoubtedly a chemical attack.
On Monday, Secretary of State John F. Kerry said it was undeniable that the regime had used chemical weapons and called the act a “moral obscenity.”
Mr. Cameron said the resolution will be presented Wednesday in New York at a meeting of the five permanent members of the security council.
Mr. Cameron also has recalled Parliament from their summer break on Thursday and said there will be a clear government motion and vote on “U.K. response to chemical weapons attacks.”
