The head of Britain's foreign spy service, Alex Younger, delivered a speech and warned of Russia's role in the "unfolding tragedy" in Syria on Thursday, December 8, at the agency's headquarters in London, reported by the Guardian

In his rare speech the head of MI6 says Syria’s unfolding tragedy is due to a lack of legitimacy. Criticising the Russian intervention in the Syrian conflict, Younger describes the human tragedy of Aleppo as heartbreaking, and says the world will not be safe as long as the conflict continues.

Younger was the first serving MI6 chief to make such a public speech inside the agency's landmark headquarters on the south bank of the River Thames.

"The risks at stake are profound and represent a fundamental threat to our sovereignty; they should be a concern to all those who share democratic values."
