UK military support of Riyadh leads to regional instability:British MP

London, Dec 14, IRNA - British MP Francie Molloy said that UK’s military support of Riyadh and other oppressive countries in the Middle East will lead to regional instability and higher civilian casualties.

Unfortunately, UK’s involvement in the region is being ignored by the British media and they try not to open up dialogue around it, he said while speaking in an exclusive interview with the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).

Molloy is an Irish member of the British Parliament from “Sinn Féin” party and the interview was made on the sideline of a meeting on Bahrain held at the British parliament on Wednesday.

There is no justification to UK’s policy in the region and “such strategy has led to British arms industry to flourish,” he added.

Asked about Trump’s recognition of the Holy Quds (Jerusalem) as the capital of the Zionist regime of Israel he said that it was a totally wrong and irresponsible decision.

'He [Donald Trump] does not have any respect to international law and the Israeli lobby in the USA seems to be controlling the White House agenda.'

Molloy added, 'The fact is that in dealing with different situations, he supports one side against the other, is totally wrong. For resolving Palestine-Israel conflict, Palestinians should have right to govern their own land.'
