Boris Johnson: Join the Global Ceasefire - Withdraw UK Troops
We urge the British Government to act on the call of United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres for a global ceasefire by withdrawing British armed forces from war zones around the world. There are currently thousands of British forces in at least 35 countries around the world including 1,000 in Afghanistan and more than 1,000 in the Middle East including in Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Their continued presence in these areas is only serving to prolong conflict and heighten tensions. As the UN says, the only war we should be fighting is against the Coronavirus.
