Lisa Nandy comments on US decision to end support for Saudi-led operations in Yemen

Lisa Nandy MP, Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary, commenting on the United States’ decision to end support for Saudi-led operations in Yemen, said:

“The Government’s support for the Saudi campaign in Yemen is not only morally wrong but increasingly leaves Britain isolated on the world stage.

“President Biden’s decision to end US support for operations in Yemen shows just how far global opinion has shifted and leaves the UK worryingly out of step with our allies.

“Ministers must now take long overdue action to stop arms sales to Saudi Arabia and end the UK’s role in a conflict which has caused the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.”
