Ashdown: PM must put pressure on Gulf rulers to block Isis funds

Wednesday 25th November 2015

DAVID CAMERON’S cosy connections with rich Gulf rulers means he is scared to pressurise them into cutting off funding to Islamic State (Isis), Lord Ashdown said yesterday.

The Tory PM is being told to urge Saudi Arabia, Qatar and United Arab Emirates (UAE) to stem the flow of cash financing weapons and assets that end up in the hands of Isis murderers.

Mr Cameron needs to address this “failure” when he announces tomorrow how and when RAF air strikes would target Isis in Syria, the former Lib Dem leader said on the BBC Radio 4 Today programme.

Stop the War Coalition convener Lindsey German said there is “no question” that the British monarchy and some Tories have “appalling long-standing” relationships with Saudi Arabian rulers.

Ms German added: “When the Saudi king died, the Union Jack was flown half mast and Prince Charles and the Prime Minister rushed with haste to the capital Riyadh to attend the funeral.

“When there have been human rights outcries, Mr Cameron usually defends the Saudis. Now, he is happy to tell us we need to spend billions on another war while forcing austerity.

“More people are becoming aware of this and I hope enough MPs have enough sense to vote against Syria air strikes.”

Saudi warplanes have been inactive [against ISIS; while being very active killing civilians in Yemen] for three months and Qatari ones have not flown for almost a year despite both countries being members of the US-led coalition against Isis, Lord Ashdown added.

Saudi Arabia unashamedly championed in UK security review. UK defence and security review places emphasis on human rights. Yet describes es yet describes Saudi Arabia as “vital partner”: here.
