LONDON - British defense minister Michael Fallon said on Sunday the government wanted to have a vote in parliament to launch air strikes against Islamic militants in Syria this week but it had to keep building the case of extending military action.

Asked whether there would be a vote in parliament this week, Fallon said: "We'd like to have a vote for military action but we've got to keep building the case."

Asked whether the government had got the votes needed to get parliamentary approval for the air strikes, Fallon told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show: "Not yet, we are working at it and we need to keep working at it."
