Thursday, January 17, 2019 - 19:30

Saudi Arabia’s role in orchestrating the Yemeni civil war, as well the Khashoggi incident, have contributed to the mounting pressure on the United Kingdom to cut diplomatic ties with Saudi Arabia.

Madawi Al-Rasheed:-

Saudi Arabian Visiting Professor at the Middle East Centre at LSE .

Ann Feltham:-

Parliamentary Co-ordinator at the Campaign against Arms Trade.

Massoud Shadjareh:-

Chairman of the Islamic Human Rights Commission.

OPPOSITION:

Najah Alotaibi
