British FM says London not to back US attack on Iran
Britain would not support US use of force against Iran, British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said Thursday. Speaking to the BBC, Straw said "Not only is that inconceivable, but I think the prospect of it happening is inconceivable". The international community was committed to resolving the situation "constructively", the British Foreign Secretary added. "I don't see any circumstances in which military action would be justified against Iran," he conveyed.
"I don't think, please God, that we are going to see in the next four years the most cataclysmic event for international relations that we have seen in 60 years which occurred on 11 September 2001", he said.
Straw said that George W Bush's re-election as US President was a "moment of opportunity" for European countries. (albawaba.com)
