Canada Shows Global Leadership on Protecting Civilians in Yemen

Human Rights Watch's picture

At the most recent session of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, Canada joined a core group of countries calling for an international commission of inquiry into abuses in the armed conflict in Yemen. It was a courageous decision by any measure. Canada has lucrative arms deals with Saudi Arabia – which for the past two and a half years has been leading a coalition responsible for scores of unlawful airstrikes in Yemen – making it an unlikely partner in this effort. But, the Trudeau government has shown this week that being a global leader on civilian protection means not letting immediate interests get in the way of your core values.

United States Chamber of Commerce's picture

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Chamber’s U.S.-UK Business Council issued the following statement today from Marjorie Chorlins, executive director of the Council, following Prime Minister Theresa May’s address on the UK’s approach to Brexit:“We commend Prime Minister May’s call for a transition period based on the existing structure of EU rules and regulations. A transition period will help avoid a sudden and damaging shock to trade and investment flows and will ensure that businesses, workers, and citizens need adjust only once to accommodate the new terms of the relationship.“While we welcome the UK’s commitment to abide by existing EU rules and regulations during the transition period, more clarity is urgently required on the way forward. “Brexit talks resume next week in Brussels, and with limited time remaining before the UK leaves the EU, the two sides must negotiate a high-standard trade and regulatory cooperation agreement that will minimize economic and social costs associated with the reset in UK-EU relations. As the talks continue, it is vital for negotiators to continue to engage meaningfully with key stakeholders, and the U.S.-UK Business Council stands ready to help.”The U.S.-UK Business Council recently released a report outlining the priorities of the international investment community across a number of key policy areas in order to safeguard prosperity and boost economic growth across Europe.
