star this property answer text <p>We are deeply concerned by the tensions in the Gulf. The continuation of this dispute which threatens the long-term security, stability and economies of States in the region is in no-one's interests. This is why the British Government wants to see Gulf unity restored and for all parties to take steps to build confidence.</p><p>That means Qatar's neighbours must ensure their demands are measured and realistic. Qatar also needs to take steps to engage on the substance of its neighbours' concerns and build on the progress already made on counter-terrorism and counter-radicalisation in partnership with other Gulf countries.</p><p>The Prime Minister, the Foreign Secretary and I have spoken regularly to our counterparts in the region, as well as to US, French and EU partners. We want to support the Gulf Cooperation Council countries in finding a swift solution.</p> more like this

In my Written Statement of 26 June, I made clear that this is an inappropriate use of the International Court of Justice advisory mechanism and should be resolved bilaterally between the UK and Mauritius.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​On 16 November 2016, the Government announced its decision not to support the resettlement of Chagossians to the British Indian Ocean Territory (BIOT) on the grounds of feasibility, defence and security interests, and cost to the British taxpayer. At the same time the Government announced a support package worth approximately £40million over ten years, the vast majority of which is intended to provide Chagossians in the UK, Mauritius and Seychelles with better life chances in the communities in which they currently live. As part of the package, the Government is also implementing an increased programme of heritage visits to BIOT. The next heritage visit by Chagossians is planned for later this year.</p> more like this

I made clear the UK's strong commitment to the Sino-British Joint Declaration: a recognition that it remains a legally binding treaty until 2047, is registered with the UN and continues to be in force. The Foreign Secretary, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson), also discussed Hong Kong issues at a meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on 16 February 2017.
