LibDem response to Lords' report on the Middle East

Today, the Lords Select Committee on International Relations has published a report on UK policy in the Middle East which argues that UK should distance itself from Trump; recognise Palestine as a state and support the Iran Nuclear deal.

Responding Shadow Foreign Secretary, Tom Brake MP said:

The Conservatives have shown a willingness to pander to Donald Trump, turn their backs on international commitments and give little thought to international security. 

"This report is damning of the Tory government's record, but also makes clear recommendations that PM Theresa May must now heed. 

"The British people deserve a government that stands up for what is right, while seeking to create a more stable and united international community. Only the Liberal Democrats are fighting for a UK which is open, tolerant and united."
