Corbyn: US and Russia must end fight

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has called on Russia and the US to “stop blocking each other” at the UN in order to end the Syria deadlock. 

Mr Corbyn said both countries “had form” in voting down each other’s resolutions and called for unity saying “I would say very strongly to Russia and the US: ‘Stop blocking each other’s resolutions.'”

“Maybe a British-sponsored resolution on this would be a helpful way forward?”

“Surely it’s better to work as hard as we can to prevent a further bombardment, which could extend the war.”

The Labour Leader has accused Theresa May of “waiting on Donald Trump” and he said May’s vow to take action following a ‘war cabinet’ was “not a particularly positive message.”
