Majority oppose Syria action

The nation’s military should not participate in intervention targeted at the Syrian regime, a majority of Danes say in a Gallup/Berlingske poll taken yesterday.

Sixty-four percent of respondents were against taking part in military action in Syria without a UN mandate.

Twenty-three percent were for it and 13 percent remained undecided. Politically, the PM has the support of a majority in parliament, should she decide to contribute Danish forces to a military coalition.

The PM said the 1999 NATO-led intervention in Kosovo provided a precedent for a non-UN supported attack on another country.
