UK PM set to drive out al Qaeda extremists from Syria
London: British Prime Minister David Cameron said that he intends to see `dangerous` al Qaeda extremists driven out of Syria and warned that if Britain fails to aid the opposition rebels, Syria will not be able to free itself off the militants.
The British PM`s comments came ahead of next week`s G8 summit where the fate of Syrian civil war will be the main discussion agenda, the Sky News reports.
Cameron said that while some of the Syrian opposition elements are dangerous extremists whom he wants to see as fleeing the country, some elements intend to witness a democratic and pluralistic Syria respecting the minority rights, including the rights of Christians.
Cameron stated that MPs will cast their votes before Britain plans to send military aid to Syria, following former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair`s urge to Britain to help the US in arming Syrian rebels battling against Syrian President Bashar-al-Assad and his regime.
While Syria`s Foreign Ministry has accused the US of lying in a bid to find an `excuse` to intervene in the civil war, raging for over two years, US President Barack Obama has confirmed providing `direct military support` to the opposition, the report added.
