London, 24 Muharram 1437/6 November 2015 (MINA) –  The prospect of British airstrikes against Daesh in Syria appeared no closer after U.K. newspapers Tuesday claimed Prime Minister David Cameron had abandoned plans to seek parliamentary approval.

The Times and Guardian both reported Tuesday morning that Britain’s prime minister would not push for a vote because he reportedly failed to persuade enough opposition MPs to support the motion as the launch of Russian airstrikes over Syria had complicated the situation, Anadolu Agency quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.

The reports came on the same day an influential parliamentary committee said it was “not yet persuaded” that airstrikes could defeat Daesh and help end the Syrian civil war. (T/P010/R04)
