MK is committed to a Nuclear-Free Cornwall and the eradication of nuclear weapons across the globe. It is our view that there is no strategic rationale for the retention, still less the renewal, of the British nuclear arsenal and it should be disarmed immediately.
MK also supports all moves to control the arms trade, which is having such a terrible impact on developing countries.
Mebyon Kernow spoke out against the military invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, and has also backed improved support for military personnel who have participated in these recent conflicts.
MK fully supports the UN’s target of 0.7% of GDP for overseas aid, which we believe must be targeted at those areas in greatest need and not be linked to inappropriate trade deals.
It is absurd that poor countries are being forced to destroy their environments and ransack their natural resources in a vain attempt to pay back unfair debts. We believe that such Third World debts should be written off.
