His Excellency Dr Ali bin Smaikh al Marri ,the chairman of National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) has called for immediate action by the United Kingdom (UK) to end the unjust siege of Qatar.

The NHRC chief, while addressing a  meeting with officials at the UK's Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London on Thursday, said that remaining neutral on this issue is a “violation in itself of the rights of those abused by the siege.”


He underlined that the points mentioned in the UN, which condemned the measures taken by the blockading countries, should also be a signal that countries can no longer remain neutral, as reported by Qatar Tribune.

During the meeting, Marri met the Minister of State for the Middle East and North Africa Alistair Burt and Minister of State for the Commonwealth and the United Nations. 

According to Marri, the UK government now has a legal and moral responsibility to end the unjust siege and support those affected.
