Corbyn: UK Needs Review of US Ties After ‘Illegal’ Iraq Invasion

The UK must pursue a “more open and more independent relationship” with the US in order to avoid repeating the errors of the 2003 invasion of Iraq, British Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn has said.

Following the release of the long-awaited Chilcot report, Jeremy Corbyn savaged Britain’s involvement in the military intervention, describing it “an act of military aggression launched on a false pretext,” which had “devastated Iraq’s infrastructure and society” and unleashed “lethal sectarianism within the country.”
