Carol Turner, spoke on behalf of CND at a press conference on UK arms export to Saudi Arabia last month. Here is an extract of what she said:

"The sale of UK arms to Saudi Arabia and other regimes with dubious human rights records not only directly contributes to the worsening situation in Yemen, it is an indirect contributor to some of the worst dangers faced by the people of Britain.

CND opposes all weapons of mass and indiscriminate destruction. We believe that human rights must be protected everywhere, and that conflicts even those as difficult as that in Yemen are best solved by political dialogue and negotiation. We are pleased to stand with you today, and demand an end of UK arms exports to Saudi Arabia."
