British Prime Minister David Cameron on Tuesday recalled Parliament to debate military options against Syria and said the country was considering a "proportionate response" to the "absolutely abhorrent" chemical weapons attack.
According to Reuters, Cameron's spokesman said that British armed forces were “making contingency plans” and that while a military response was on the table, the country had not committed to such an action yet.
The spokesman also said that whatever response Cameron decided on would “be taken under a strict international framework,” and that Cameron would be talking with other world leaders throughout the next few days to ensure a coordinated response.
Cameron's statement follows a statement by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, which many believe suggests the U.S. is preparing some kind of military intervention against Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime.
