LCPA, London, UK (09.09.2017) – A controversial UAE conference has been announced late august 2017 in London, UK. The Conference planned to take place on 14th September 2017 seems to be yet another UAE endeavour to damage the flourishing Qatar-UK relations and the wider Qatar-EU unshakable bonds.

The conference titled, "The Qatar, Global Security & Stability Conference" is part of KSA-UAE-Bahrain campaign which aims at isolating Qatar on international level. LCPA has learnt that this event is being run by US media consultancy company which has contentious history of running similar negative campaigns.

London Centre For Public Affairs (LCPA) warn UK MPs, politicians not to fall victims of this conference which apparently has no announced speakers nor working agenda. The conference has not even announced its venue!

LCPA is observing cautiously this conference and other UAE negative lobby and pressure efforts in the UK.

As an organisation interested in the UK-Europe Public Affairs, our centre vows to stop such activities by reaching out to UK parliamentarians and decision makers to expose this counterfeit event.

Our centre will also contact Daniel Kawczynski MP who has been misled by the organisers.

"Indeed, this is a very notorious bogus event that aims at damaging Qatar image and meddling its relations with UK and Europe. Qatar’s investment in the UK has reached a record high of more than £35 billion with £5.3 billion – a remarkable 98% increase in the last 3 years.

This is golden relation that must not be affected to satisfy the foreign UAE’s goals." said LCPA spokesperson.

The Centre will conduct an immediate campaign to stop this conference from achieving its misleading goals. We believe in strong UK relations with Qatar and refuse any external efforts to ruin the ever-flourishing bonds with Qatar. Recently, Secretary of State for International Trade, Dr Liam Fox stated," And as our countries go from strength to strength, we can be assured that this bond is stronger than ever."

LCPA will reach to the UK Government as well as the Foreign Affairs Committee to expose the goals of the organisers.

London Centre For Public Affairs (LCPA) has contacted UK MPs, members of the Lords and Senior academics to familiarise them of the conference objectives.
