star this property answer text We remain deeply concerned by the ongoing discrimination against Christians and other minority religious groups in Iran. We have called for the Iranian government to protect the rights of all minority groups and end the persecution of individuals on the basis of their faith. We last raised these issues with the Iranian government during our interventions at the Universal Periodic Review of Iran’s Human Rights at the UN on 31 October. more like this

star this property answer text I recently raised human rights issues with the Qatari Government during my visit to Doha on 15 October, and the issue of migrant workers was raised with the Emir of Qatar during his visit to the UK on 28-30 October. The Government welcomes in particular the serious manner in which the Qatari Government is responding to concerns about the treatment of migrant workers, and supports Qatar’s intention to reform the current labour law. We continue to encourage the Qatari Government to address human rights concerns and we stand ready to support those efforts where we can. more like this

In 2009 Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that the US was committed to ratifying UNCLOS and the Administration tried – unsuccessfully - to promote this policy in 2012. Nevertheless joining UNCLOS remains a priority for the US Administration.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The IDF has demarcated a 6-mile radius at the western nautical border. The demarcation of the northern border is not as clear to fishermen and this border area is the site of many incidents. During Operation Protective Edge, we raised our concern with the IDF several times over incidents in which fishermen were reportedly shot. The IDF maintained that the Israeli Navy fired only warning shots into the air when the fishermen ventured over the nautical border. We have received unconfirmed reports from the British Consulate General in Jerusalem on attacks in October. We have not raised the October incidents with the Israeli authorities, but continue to monitor developments closely.</p> more like this
