LONDON, September 30. /TASS/. Eminent representatives of Britain’s leading Conservative party backed Russia’s decision to involve the Russian air force to deliver strikes on the positions of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group in Syria and to back Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.
"I am pleased that the Russians have said they are going to intervene and I hope very much that it helps contribute to the extinguishing of this appalling threat to mankind," Colonel Bob Stewart, a member of Parliament's defense select committee, said on Wednesday.
"Personally as a member of parliament l think Daesh [Arab name for IS] is the most foul enemy that we face and just like in the Second World War, combining with the Russians would not be a bad thing," he said.
Meanwhile, James Gray, the Conservative MP for North Wiltshire and fellow defense select committee member, also welcomed the decision. He said: "My enemy's enemy is my friend, to some degree."
Official London’s opinion was announced by Prime Minister David Cameron in New York, stating that Syrian president Bashar al-Assad is not lesser evil than the IS and they must not handle any matters with him.
