Ex-Turkish ambassador: Assad has proven his strong presence and control of Syria (E792)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to the deputy chair of the Republican People’s Party of Turkey and former Turkish ambassador to the UK, Unal Cevikoz, about the Saudi Aramco oil field bombing and tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia. We also discuss progress in the trilateral negotiations between Iran, Turkey and Russia, Assad’s strength in Syria, and more! Next, we speak to former Liberal Democrat MP and ex-minister of state at the Home Office Norman Baker about the week’s top stories including Sam Gyimah’s defection to the Lib Dems, and David Cameron’s new book in which he claims ‘to do nothing in Libya was to facilitate murder.’ We also look at a report that Assange will remain in prison after his sentence expires. Finally, we speak to SNP MP Angus MacNeil about Jo Swinson’s attempt to rebrand herself as ‘stop Brexit’ when her past shows she was in favor of a Brexit referendum. He also explains how the SNP will fight the Lib Dems and Tories at the next election, and why the Yellowhammer no-deal Brexit government report isn’t scaremongering – it’s a very realistic scenario.

“We very much regret that the licences were issued in error. The International Trade Secretary commissioned a full and urgent investigation as soon as the breach was discovered. 

“Throughout the investigation, all decisions made on export licences to Saudi Arabia and its Coalition partners will be subject to additional compliance checks, including closer collaboration between departments, so that no further licences are issued in error. 

“We take our arms export control responsibilities very seriously and remain fully committed to complying with the Court Order.”
