Hague: No plan for UK military intervention in Iraq

There are no plans for a British military intervention in Iraq in an attempt to stabilise the region, William Hague has said.

The foreign secretary rejected the idea that the UK could participate in air strikes when questioned by the Today programme's John Humphrys.

Mr Hague is to make a statement to Parliament later on Monday on events in Iraq after recent territorial advances by Sunni militants.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Monday 16 June.
