May to Push for Aviation Security Resolution During UN Meeting

  • U.K. fears travelers at risk in low-security airports
  • Prime Minister calls for more international cooperation

Theresa May will use her time at this week’s United Nations General Assembly to push for a resolution for countries to work together on aviation security, in the wake of a series of attacks on airplanes and airports in the last year.

The new U.K. prime minister, who was responsible for counter-terrorism efforts in her previous role as home secretary, is concerned that lax security in other countries is putting travelers at risk. After a Metrojet plane crashed in Egypt in October, Britain was the first government to blame a bomb.
