wilayattimes (UK)

London:Jeremy Corbyn has said Britain should “stand up to the belligerent actions and rhetoric coming from the United States”, after Donald Trump ordered the assassination of Iran’s top general.

In a statement today, Corbyn said the killing was “an extremely serious and dangerous escalation of conflict in the Middle East with global significance”.

“The UK government should urge restraint on the part of both Iran and the US, and stand up to the belligerent actions and rhetoric coming from the United States,” the outgoing Labour leader said.

“All countries in the region and beyond should seek to ratchet down the tensions to avoid deepening conflict, which can only bring further misery to the region, 17 years on from the disastrous invasion of Iraq.”
