David Cameron in Paris offering support to the French Government

David Cameron, the Prime Minister, has made a statement whilst in Paris offering his support for the French with their military action against ISIS.

Cameron said:

“The United Kingdom will do all in our power to support our friend and ally France to defeat this evil death cult”.

The Prime Minister added that the European Union needed to do more to tackle terrorists:

This requires a pan-European effort.

“We need a stronger external EU border to protect our security more effectively, with screening, systematic security checks and greater sharing of data amongst member states.

We must, without any further delay, finally agree rules that will enable us to share passenger name records. It is frankly ridiculous we can get more information from countries outside the EU than we can from each other”.
