Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Iran (17 Meh 2014)

Hugh Robertson: The current negotiations with Iran are the best opportunity in years to resolve the issue of Iran’s nuclear programme.

However, there remains commitment on all sides of the table...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Iran (17 Meh 2014)

EU financial measures apply within the EU and to EU nationals and entities rather...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Jerusalem (16 Meh 2014)

Hugh Robertson: The Government consider that Jerusalem has the status of a corpus separatum as defined by the 1947 UN Partition Plan.
