I currently sit as a member of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. I work to influence legislation and ensure that any new developments suit Scotland’s needs.

Foreign Affairs Committee

Since my re-election in 2014, I’ve been serving as a full member of the Foreign Affairs Committee. As you might guess, this is a key player in the design and implementation of the EU’s foreign policy, deciding on the way European funds are used to promote the EU’s interests and values abroad. The committee closely monitors the performance of other EU institutions, particularly the European Commission.

As someone who grew up in both Saudi Arabia and Scotland, it is an honour to be a full member of both the Delegation for relations with the Arab Peninsula and the Delegation for relations with Iraq.
