May accountable to parliament, not Trump - Corbyn

United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May should be accountable to UK parliament, not the "whims" of the United States President Donald Trump, Leader of the Opposition Jeremy Corbyn said, replying to May's remarks to the members of the British parliament on Monday relating to UK participation in the bombing of Syria.

Corbyn also urged for legislation allowing parliament to approve these kinds of actions, calling the intervention in Syria legally questionable. He added that the attacks took place over the weekend because the prime minister didn't want for them to take place while parliament was in session.

The Labour Party leader also pointed out that the UK should put more pressure on Syria and Russia, in order to ensure access to the Douma site for OPCW inspectors.
