SHAFAQNA – British Prime Minster Theresa May is “positioning herself in defense of grand war criminals” in order to boost her country’s economy, according to a political commentator in London, but “you can’t base growth or even the future of the country on war crimes.”
“The only reason why she is arguing that because Britain is leaving the European Union, and then Britain needs to find basically new markets to be able to boost its economy,” said Catherine Shakdam, the programs director of Shafaqna Institute for Mideast Studies.
Shafaqna made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Wednesday while talking about May’s hopes to tap Saudi Arabia’s “immense potential” to boost UK economy.
The analyst stated that May is “OK with basically boosting Britain’s economy on the blood of the innocent,” referring to the people dying in result of the Saudi war on Yemen and other Riyadh-sponsored conflicts in the Middle East region.
“Her policy is to turn a blind eye to genocide in Yemen and the promotion of Wahhabism/terrorism across the world for the sake of her country’s economic future,” she said..
“I am hoping that it’s a non-argument because you can’t base growth or even the future of the country on war crimes,” the commentator continued.
