The Department of Foreign Affairs of the British Foreign Office, in cooperation with the Commonwealth Department of the FCO, has created a list of the names of 30 countries, which believes that these countries lack many human rights organizations and there is no democracy and the situation is getting worse by the day.
Although in the past two years the British government has issued arms sales to 22 of these countries and the value of those weapons Britain has sold to these countries is estimated at more than £ 4.1 billion.
In this context, the British Independent writes that if there are attempts to portray the British government’s contradiction and hypocrisy in its foreign policy, this report, which condemns and proves that the British government has sold many weapons to different countries over the past two years, is a proof of its contradiction and hypocrisy.
In recent weeks, British government ministers have made strong speeches about the poor human rights situation and the repression in Venezuela. “Now we see that there are changes in Venezuela and we see that the fundamental rights of the people in this country are in danger,” said Boris Johnson.
In addition, many senior British officials expressed their deep concern at the tragic human rights situation in Venezuela and the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Commonwealth Department of Foreign Affairs (FCO) placed this country at the top of the list of “human rights priorities” “Which I formed earlier.
According to some research conducted by Amnesty International, many British-made weapons have been seen in the hands of terrorist elements of the Da’ash organization in Iraq.
“The sale of weapons cannot be non-political. This is not only a means of providing military support, but also a legitimization of the military operations of those countries that have bought a lot of British weapons,” the Independent said. That the Saudi warplanes, flying heavily in the Yemeni airspace and receiving many of the bombs that were purchased earlier from Britain on the heads
It is worth noting here that two and a half years after this absurd war by the Al-Saud regime against the Yemeni people, the situation became more acute and the living conditions of the people of this country grew worse and they became close to a humanitarian catastrophe.
In the wake of the brutal attacks by the Saudi-led Arab coalition in Yemen, some 10,000 people have lost their lives. It should be noted here that these attacks by the coalition came at a time when the people suffering from the cholera epidemic are suffering in different parts of the country. There are currently about 400,000 people suspected of having cholera and 2,000 people have lost their lives due to the disease.
Regardless of the rapid increase in violence and casualties, Saudi Arabia is one of the largest countries to purchase British weapons. The value of arms sold by the British government to the Al-Saud system since the beginning of its war on Yemen has reached about 3.8 billion pounds.
