THE DEBATE

A live debate on the topic of the day, with four guests. From Monday to Thursday at 7.10 pm Paris time.

Latest update : 2018-04-16

Mission accomplished? UK and French lawmakers divided over Syria strikes

With a limited one-off operation and no reported fatalities, all sides seem almost happy to read their lines. Syria's Assad is less afraid of the West, while the Russians and Iranians seem to have had plenty of warning to avoid direct confrontations. In Europe, leaders can say they acted as parliamentary debates play out in London and Paris. We ask about the impact of the strikes and division within Western countries over whether this was a just punishment for the suspected chemical attack.

Produced by Yann PUSZTAI, Tommaso MAZZANTI and Van MEGUERDITCHIAN.
