Tell the Welsh Government to Respect Human Rights & Shut its UAE & Qatar Offices

The Welsh Liberal Democrats are calling on the Labour-Plaid Cymru administration to reconsider its presence in the middle eastern states of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Qatar due to concerns over the atrocious human rights records of the two countries including on women’s rights, LGBTQ+ rights, modern slavery and a lack of democracy.

We want Wales to be a confident and outward-looking nation, but I also want to see Wales stand up strongly for human rights, democracy and liberty. The Welsh Government should be focusing on basing trade offices in democratic countries.

We will always stand up for human rights no matter how inconvenient that is and the fact that we are the only party in the Senedd willing to do this only goes to show why having Liberal voices in the Senedd is necessary.
