Jeremy Corbyn: Our foreign policy will be based on human rights and justice

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has pledged to put an end to “failed regime change wars” and put independence, human rights and justice at the heart of his foreign policy if he becomes Prime Minister.

In a speech this morning at Chatham House in London Corbyn said that he would keep Britain safe and would use military action as a last resort, but he said that he would use his power with care and resolve conflicts peacefully.

Corbyn added that the War on Terror had not succeeded and had not increased our security at home. Instead it had led to destablisation and devastation abroad.

Corbyn also said:

  • He would stop arms sales to Saudi Arabia.
  • Donald Trump is adding to danger to the world by escalating conflict with North Korea, launching attacks on Syria and opposing the Iran nuclear deal.
  • He would have a strong and friendly relationship with the US but would not be afraid to speak his mind.
  • Theresa May is pandering to the US administration’s military aggression.
  • He would pursue nuclear disarmament and would not use a nuclear weapon first.
  • He would seek a political solution to the Syria conflict.
  • He would decrease tensions with Russia.

5Pillars have one humble request from you…

Thousands of Muslims around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the unfortunate reality of covering Muslim-related news in a heightened Islamophobic environment, our advertising and fundraising revenues have decreased significantly.

5Pillars is editorially and financially independent, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement. Our journalism has been exclusively grassroots focussed and our sole purpose is to defend Islam and Muslims in the media.

This makes us unique in comparison to other online Muslim media outlets who are neither independently regulated by a reputable body nor are they managed by qualified journalists.

Our journalism takes time, money and effort to deliver. But we do it because we believe we have a duty to Allah (swt).

You may not agree or like everything we publish. However, which other Muslim news site that is run by experienced journalists will take on the responsibility of being a shield for Islam and Muslims in the media?

If you follow 5Pillars, and you understand its importance in today’s climate, then please support us for as little as £5 a month, it only takes a minute to make a donation. Jazakallah khayran.

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:“The best deeds are those done regularly, even if they are small.” [Ibn Mājah]
