Britain's Cameron calls for European cooperation on security
Dec 01, 2015 British Prime Minister David Cameron recently called for greater European cooperation in the fight against terrorism.
Cameron, who said this after a meeting with the Austrian Chancellor in Vienna, insisted that tackling the migrant crisis and terrorism can only be achieved through coordinated efforts.
Speaking at a news briefing, Prime Minister Cameron said:
“As members of the global coalition against ISIL (Islamic State), both the UK and Austria are committed to defeating these terrorists in Iraq and Syria. And as I said in parliament this morning, this must be part of a comprehensive strategy to bring the civil war in Syria to an end. And of course, the international talks, which Austria has hosted here in Vienna, are an absolutely vital part of that.”
Cameron also touched on the issue of migrants, saying:
“We agree we need to pursue a comprehensive approach that tackles the problem at source and stops migrants from making the perilous journey to Europe. And we must do more to work with Turkey – Europe’s neighbor and Syria’s neighbor – who are hosting more Syrian refugees than any other country.”
