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

Hugh Robertson: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend. If someone wanted to derail the peace process and the prospects of peace, I could think of no better way to do it than to carry out such actions. One needs only to go there or to watch events from here to sense the angst that this has caused. That absolutely shows the importance of getting the peace process back on track.

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

Hugh Robertson: Yes. I am very aware of the impact that any form of military action has on life in the west bank, as are many others. My hon. Friend’s constituent and others have properly drawn the international community’s attention to that. On the other hand, we have to understand that Israel is the one liberal democracy in that part of the world and that it lies in an arc of countries where...

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

Hugh Robertson: The correct response as regards the war on terror, which we have faced in this country for many years through the threat from Irish republicans, is to target what we do very precisely, to avoid escalation and to abide by the rule of law. That is precisely how we relieve the underlying causes of conflict. If one goes further than that, the lessons of history show that that inevitably stokes...

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

Hugh Robertson: In a sense, I agree with both parts of my hon. Friend’s question. Israel absolutely faces a toxic combination of such factors and, as I have said, it is the one liberal democracy in that part of the world and is threatened by a sea of instability around it. We would absolutely expect the state of Israel to protect its citizens, but the point that I am making—do not get this wrong—is...

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

Hugh Robertson: I think I can give my hon. Friend that assurance, because I was in the west bank when it happened and the domestic price that President Abbas was paying for taking that stance internationally was abundantly clear. He is absolutely doing what the international community wants to see him do and we expect the Palestinian technocratic Government to live up to their responsibility to co-operate...

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

Hugh Robertson: Yes, I can give my hon. Friend that assurance. In a sense, his question sheds some light on precisely why the Israeli Government are concerned about security and are right to be concerned about security.

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

Hugh Robertson: In a sense, my hon. Friend makes the point that I was moving towards in my answers to some of the earlier questions: an escalation of the crisis in that part of the world will serve only the men and women of violence on both sides. If there were to be a further escalation, that would absolutely play into the hands of all those who seek to sabotage the peace process and to pursue their aims...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Egypt ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Mr Hague), made a statement on 23 June expressing his concerns and urging the Egyptian Government to demonstrate its commitment to freedom of expression by reviewing this case as a matter of urgency. The Egyptian ambassador Ashraf el-Kholy was summoned to the Foreign and...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Israel ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: Officials from our embassy in Tel Aviv met with an official from the Israeli Prime Minister’s office on 17 June and expressed our concern over the Bill. We are continuing to monitor developments.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Israel ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: Officials from our embassy in Tel Aviv have formally raised with the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) mistreatment of British nationals three times since 2010. They were on 7 January 2012; 19 December 2012 and 18 March 2013. Our officials have to seek permission from the individual concerned before raising with the MFA, and not all individuals are willing to pursue this route. The...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Israel ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: We have been clear that we oppose sanctions and boycotts on Israel, and do not believe such steps would promote progress towards a two-state solution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We are satisfied that this position is consistent with our international obligations.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Israel ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: The Government has made no assessment on how many recommendations made by UNICEF have been taken forward by the Israeli authorities. However, we continue to urge the Israeli authorities to take action on the recommendations made in the UNICEF report, and the positive steps they have taken so far, and the earlier independent report by senior British lawyers. I wrote to the Israeli...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Middle East ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: We do not collect information on how often the official Envoy of the Quartet reports back to the United Nations, the United States and Russia. The Envoy regularly reports back on his work to the European Union and its member states and we remain in close contact with him. This is in the form of meetings with Ministers and senior officials and the sharing of reports. The Office of the Quartet...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Middle East ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: The statement made by the then-Hamas Prime Minister in April 2014 was deplorable and only serves to perpetuate the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The new Palestinian interim technocratic government contains no Hamas members, and has signed up to the international community's principles: non-violence, a negotiated two state solution, and an acceptance of all previous agreements and obligations,...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Occupied Territories ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: Prime Minister Netanyahu's office informed our officials that demolitions take place where building has occurred without a permit from the Israeli authorities. And that—as per the Oslo accords—Israel has planning authority over these areas. They also said that they therefore have the right to evict people and demolish structures, where they consider building to have taken place illegally...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Palestinians ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: The Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice, my right hon. Friend the Member for Epsom and Ewell (Chris Grayling), raised the treatment of child detainees with the Israeli Supreme Court President during his visit to Israel in May. I wrote to the Israeli Attorney-General on this issue on 31 March 2014.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Palestinians ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: The UK is concerned about the situation of Palestinians in Israeli detention, and we raise this issue regularly with the Israeli authorities. However, the Palestinian Authority has not made a formal request for an emergency session of the UN Security Council to address this issue.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Palestinians ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: As of 30 June, we have received no reports that the three kidnapped Israeli teenagers have been released.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Palestinians ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: The Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice, my right hon. Friend the Member for Epsom and Ewell (Chris Grayling), raised the treatment of child detainees with the Israeli Supreme Court President during his visit to Israel in May. As a recent progress report by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) indicates, Israel has taken some positive steps towards addressing the...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Palestinians ( 1 Gor 2014)

Hugh Robertson: I refer my hon. Friend to my answer of 26 June 2014, Official Report, column 258W.
