Tom Tugendhat 33A number of Conservative MPs condemned Iran’s regional aggression in Foreign Office Questions this week.

In a question about Palestinian refugees, Chair of the Foreign Affairs Select Committee Tom Tugendhat MP underlined that “rather than spending their money on missiles and terrorists in Syria and elsewhere” the Iran government “could spend some of that IRGC money instead on the fate of refugees” in Lebanon, Syria, Gaza and the West Bank “where those Palestinians so often are linked through political means to the Iranian regime, and yet somehow the money seems to only go on weapons and none of it goes on education and schools or hospitals?”.

CFI Parliamentary Chairman Rt. Hon. Stephen Crabb MP condemned Iran’s rocket attack on Israel from Syria last week, highlighting the failure of nuclear deal to encourage Iran to “become a more responsible member of the international community”.
