We call on Trump to return to Obama's successful diplomacy policy on Iran

Following Dominic Raab's appearance on the Andrew Marr show on the 5th January, Liberal Democrat Acting Leader Ed Davey said: "Dominic Raab's lapdog defence of Donald Trump's reckless action against Iran is seriously misguided and not in Britain's best interests. The United States' so-called strategy with Iran and across the Middle East is so incoherent and inconsistent that it is making the search for peace and security far more problematic. So it is a huge mistake for the Foreign Secretary to give Trump a blank cheque of unequivocal support, especially when the Government was not even consulted before this action and this could backfire badly against Britain. Iran is a dangerous regime but the Middle East has never really recovered from the illegal and disastrously judged Iraq War, when the Conservatives also unwisely backed US military intervention."

Britain should be telling Washington it needs to totally change its policy of maximum pressure and urgently re-focus on the previously successful strategy of engagement led by President Obama.

Sign our petition to call on the UK Government to put pressure on Trump to return to diplomacy.
