UK signed 60 weapon contracts with Iran
The United Kingdom has given the Ayatollah’s military electronics and what is described as “equipment employing cryptography”.
The UK government has approved more than 3,000 export licences for military sales to countries which it believes have questionable records on human rights, MPs say.
The House of Commons Committees on Arms Export Controls says the value of the existing export licences to the 27 countries in question exceeds £12bn.
This includes significant sales to China, Iran and Saudi Arabia. Sales to Sri Lanka raise “very serious questions”, the report adds.
The committees consist of four select committees meeting and working together: business, defence, foreign affairs, and international development.
The chairman, Conservative MP Sir John Stanley, said he was astonished at the scale and value of the licences.
There were, for example, more than 60 licences for Iran, including components for military electronics and what is described as “equipment employing cryptography”.
This appears to be a catch-all term which encompasses a variety of equipment, much of it in the telecommunications sector.

The most pathetic form of existence is hypocrisy. If you not want to live by your own rules, at least stop preaching to others.
To talk in public about “sanctions on Iran” is important. Because the totalitarian Islamic republic of Iran do not deserve any support from the civilized world. Only by weakening this regime, the Iranians might be able to overthrow this evil.
When you hand military equipment over to the ayatollah’s, you are strengthening the evil doers. And even worse. You help your nation to sink down into the muck, by acting like a hypocrite.
Shame on the Conservative government in UK. To give weapons to the pre-nuclear Iran is like supporting military equipment for Nazi-Germany.
