Scottish National Party (SNP)

Military action in Syria

Alex Salmond has said that the SNP will not back more Syria bombs. The SNP will oppose any strikes against Assad if there is to be a second vote. According to Salmond ‘A strong SNP opposition will work to ensure that the UK is not dragged once again into military action without a plan or coherent strategy and without the rule of international law being respected – including seeking a full-scale UN-led investigation into Syrian-regime chemical attacks, rather than signing up for unilateral military action.’
