NEC Statement - Qatar diplomatic and economic blockade
The Liberal Party deplores the regional blockade and sanctions imposed on the State of Qatar by its gulf neighbours, and the attempts to impose a settlement which impinges on its national sovereignty.

This dispute has its roots both in a regional power struggle between Saudi Arabia and Iran, as well as a concerted attempt to silence the Al Jazeera network, as well as the lesser known Arabi21 and Middle East Eye.

The Liberal party supports the diversity of opinion Qatar has nurtured, much of which will be unwelcome in regional capitals, whilst acknowledging some of the contents has given publicity to fringe groups and individuals with questionable credentials and agendas.

In the interests of diversity, all journalism has some bias, and we are better served by this diversity.
