The International Campaign for Justice and the Stop the War Coalition have called for a firm stance against UAE’s current policies

In a statement received by Quds Press the two organisations called on countries around the world to stop rms deals with a state that is committing severe crimes in the region.

They also called on the United Nations’ Secretary-General to develop a mechanism to respond to the UAE’s actions.

The two organisations protested in front of the UAE embassy in London on Saturday, against the crimes the country has committed in different regions, including Yemen, Qatar, Libya, Eritrea, Somalia, Egypt, Lebanon and Palestine.

Through its rapprochement with Israel, the UAE is trying to pass projects that shall cause the Palestinians’ historical rights that are recognized in the international law to be lost.

According to the statement, the UAE is an essential member state in the Arab alliance in Yemen, which has been led by Saudi Arabia since 2015.

On 5 June, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, UAE and Bahrain have cut ties with Qatar on the grounds of “supporting terrorism,” which Doha denied, saying it is facing a “campaign of fabrications and lies.”

The blockading states have imposed economic sanctions, including closing their airspace to Qatari aviation and sea and air borders.
