star this property answer text <p>We regularly raise human rights issues and the need to allow freedom of expression as part of our ongoing dialogue with the Turkish government. As part of this dialogue, we continue to urge the Turkish authorities to exercise restraint and respond proportionately to public demonstrations. <br><br>We strongly encourage Turkey to continue work towards the full protection of fundamental rights, especially in the areas of minority rights and freedom of expression. Further sustained work is needed to meet EU standards on the fundamental rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex persons. But we do welcome progress made, including the ruling of Turkey’s Constitutional Court finding hate speech on the grounds of sexual orientation to constitute a criminal offence.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We have raised concerns about LGBT rights in Russia bilaterally at a number of levels since the law banning the promotion of “non-traditional sexual relations” among minors was passed in June 2013. Most recently, the Minister for Europe discussed concerns about the protection of LGBT people in Russia with the Russian Ambassador on 18 December. He expressed deep disquiet at the findings of the Human Rights Watch report and the impact of the law on the LGBT community in Russia. FCO officials also raised the safety of participants at LGBT events with the Russian authorities in November.</p><p>FCO officials in Russia meet regularly with LGBT activists and attend LGBT events, such a Queerfest and the Side-by-Side Film Festival, to provide support. This year we are supporting the operation of a counselling hotline for the LGBT community in Russia, as well as a capacity building project for Russian LGBT campaigners. We also supported the Russian Open Games in February, a five day international sporting event organised by the Russian LGBT Sports Federation.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK expects all EU Member States to meet their obligations to comply with international standards including with regards to the fundamental values of respect for human dignity, freedom and respect for human rights, in the same way they have this expectation of us. The British Government recognises that Hungary has received the second highest number of asylum claims of any EU Member State this year to June, reaching unprecedented levels. We continue to follow closely the situation in Hungary and other Central European countries regarding the arrival of unprecedented numbers of people seeking entry and, often, passage onwards. Staff at our Embassy in Budapest have visited the border with Serbia and reception centres and have also met with Hungarian officials. More broadly as the Prime Minister, my right hon. Friend the Member for Witney (Mr Cameron), has stated, the UK and its EU partners must pursue a comprehensive approach which addresses the causes of the migration problem as well as the consequences.</p>
