Mr. Speaker, the member should know that the security council passed a resolution on September 12 saying that the Americans had the right to retaliate because they had been attacked by the terrorists. Since then, the U.S. has been acting within the terms of the UN resolution.
As for consulting the coalition, we are speaking with the Americans. We have officials in the United States who are speaking daily with top American officials. I know there are representatives of Britain, Australia and probably of France and Germany. There are daily consultations with the allies.
