MOSCOW (Sputnik), Yulia Shamporova – Last week, a UN report on the use of UK-manufactured arms against Yemeni civilians by Saudi Arabia was submitted to the UN Security Council. On Wednesday, British Prime Minister David Cameron dismissed Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn's proposal to launch an inquiry into the arms deliveries.
"If the government cares about the human rights of people in Yemen then it must revoke all licenses for arms sales to Saudi Arabia and order a full independent investigation into the abuses that have taken place," Andrew Smith from Campaign Against Arms Trade said.
Yemen is engulfed in a military conflict between Houthis, the country’s main opposition faction, and government forces.
In March, a Saudi-led coalition of Arab states began airstrikes against Houthis in Yemen at the request of President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi.
