‘Do not repeat Sarajevo’ - Sir Peter

LOUTH MP Sir Peter Tapsell has urged Prime Minister David Cameron to do his ‘upmost’ to prevent the Damascus of 2012 becoming the Sarajevo of 1914.

Mr Cameron responded during a House of Commons debate last week that it was crucial to ensure ‘proper protection of minorities, including Christian minorites’ in that country.

“We do not want to see sectarian conflict,” he warned.

“There will not be a prospeous and safe future for Syria with Assad still in charge.”
