Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Saudi Arabia ( 7 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: We have made clear to the Saudi authorities our strong support for the right to freedom of religion or belief. The Senior Minister of State, my noble Friend the right hon. Baroness Warsi raised the importance of religious tolerance in meetings with Governor and Mayor of Makkah, Presidency of the Two Holy Mosques, and the Secretary General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation in February...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Syria ( 7 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: The lack of democratic freedoms in Syria is at the root of the current crisis. The recent elections held by the Assad regime were a parody of democracy, taking place against the backdrop of horrendous violence, and with many millions of Syrians disenfranchised. Since its formation in October 2012, we have provided the National Coalition with practical and political support designed to help it...

[Mr David Amess in the Chair] — North and West Africa (UK Response) ( 3 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Amess. I start by thanking the Select Committee on Foreign Affairs for its report and hon. Members for their contributions, and by apologising for not being the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my hon. Friend the Member for Boston and Skegness (Mark Simmonds)—the Minister with responsibility for...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Palestinians ( 3 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: The UK does not talk to Hamas. It remains the Government’s position that Hamas must adhere to the Quartet Principles, by renouncing violence, recognising Israel, and accepting previously signed agreements. To date, 2 July 2014, they have not.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Bahrain ( 2 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: We are saddened to hear about the death of Abdulaziz al-Abbar. We encourage the authorities to carry out a timely and thorough independent investigation.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Saudi Arabia ( 2 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: Our policy on human rights defenders is guided by the UN Declaration on Human Rights Defenders (1998) and the EU Guidelines. Embassy officials have regular contact with human rights defenders. It is, however, often the view of the defenders that involvement with foreign representatives and organisations can make their task of pressing for reform more difficult. Nevertheless, we work to align...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Saudi Arabia ( 2 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: We are aware of the case of Fowzan al-Harbi. We maintain a regular dialogue with the Saudi authorities on a range of human rights issues, including those of human rights defenders.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Tony Blair ( 2 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: Tony Blair was appointed by the Quartet (US, EU, UN and Russia) as the representative of the Middle East Quartet in June 2007. The Quartet principals (Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, High Representative for European Foreign and Security Policy Javier Solana) approved his appointment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Israeli Teenagers (Abduction and Murder) ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: I visited Israel and the west bank from 17 to 19 June last week, just after the kidnapping of the three Israeli teenagers. The whole House will share our sadness that last night the Israeli Government confirmed that they had recovered their bodies in the west bank. As my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister has said, this is an appalling act of terror. There is no reason, belief or cause...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Israeli Teenagers (Abduction and Murder) ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: I thank my hon. Friend for his questions and, indeed, for securing the urgent question. On the question of salaries, as luck would have it, the Minister of State, Department for International Development, is sitting next to me, and he absolutely confirms that this is not true; it is an old rumour. The money is paid through a World Bank trust fund to vetted people, who are nominated civil...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Israeli Teenagers (Abduction and Murder) ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: I thank the Opposition spokesman for his support and for the way in which he set out his case. We absolutely agree with him that this is a moment for exercising maximum restraint. Let me answer the hon. Gentleman’s three questions in order. On contact with our Israeli counterparts, I have already communicated with Minister Livni, who is my direct counterpart, and I saw Minister Steinitz...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Israeli Teenagers (Abduction and Murder) ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: I hope that, if I say that I could not have put it better myself, my right hon. Friend will take that in the right spirit, given that he did my job just before me. He is absolutely right to draw attention to the impact of this on children. As we see in conflicts across the world, they are so often the innocent victims. My right hon. Friend has my absolute assurance that the Foreign Office...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Israeli Teenagers (Abduction and Murder) ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: Absolutely. The sympathy of the Government, and indeed, I am sure, the sympathy of everyone in the House, will be with all those who have lost family members, friends and relatives in this conflict. It has often struck me, in the context of the middle east, that there cannot really be a hierarchy of victimhood, and our sympathy must be with all who have lost their lives. If this tells us...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Israeli Teenagers (Abduction and Murder) ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: Yes. I welcome the hon. Gentleman’s contribution; he has made a point that has been made by any others. If this proves anything, it proves that the path of violence will lead only to further escalation and more deaths of children and others across both the west bank and Israel. It proves, if proof were needed, the importance of trying to get the middle east peace process back on track, and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Israeli Teenagers (Abduction and Murder) ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: I shall give the hon. Lady an answer that draws on my personal experience. As she may know, I was a soldier for 10 years, and took part in campaigns against terrorism, and when we lose people—civilians or soldiers—in these situations, that is precisely the time when we need to show leadership and show restraint. Absolutely all efforts should be directed at finding the perpetrators but it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Israeli Teenagers (Abduction and Murder) ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: Yes I will, and may I thank my right hon. Friend for the work that he and his Committee do in this area? It is important to note that the technocratic Government have absolutely signed up to the Quartet principles and, as far as we can see, no member of Hamas is part of that Government. If members of Hamas are, indeed, proved to be part of this and responsible for these actions, that would...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Israeli Teenagers (Abduction and Murder) ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: Yes, I absolutely understand why the hon. Gentleman asks that question, particularly given his role as the chairman of the all-party group on Britain-Palestine. The role of the technocratic Government is very clear. These youths were not abducted in an area that is inside their security control, but it is perfectly possible—but not yet confirmed—that the perpetrators of this crime did...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Israeli Teenagers (Abduction and Murder) ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: Let me answer those two questions in reverse order. The British Government will give the Israeli Government every possible assistance to find the perpetrators of this appalling crime. We have made that commitment to the Israeli Government, and I made that commitment when I was in the west bank 10 days ago. That remains the case. As far as Hamas is concerned, nobody should be under any...
