LONDON - Prime Minister David Cameron said on Thursday it was time to take a decision to join air strikes against Islamic State militants in Syria, arguing that Britain cannot "subcontract its security to other countries."

"That is why I believe that we should now take the decision to extend British air strikes against ISIL (Islamic State) into Syria, as an integral part of our comprehensive strategy to degrade ISIL and reduce the threat it poses to us," he wrote in a response to parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee.
