unstar this property answer text <p>We remain concerned by the continued detention of Oyub Titiev, Head of the Chechnya division of Non-Governmental organisation Memorial. The UK most recently raised this issue in January 2019, when we joined other EU member states in the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) in calling for Mr Titiev’s immediate release. In November 2018, the UK was one of 16 participating States to invoke the OSCE Moscow Mechanism to investigate human rights abuses in Chechnya. We continue to prioritise the promotion and protection of human rights in Russia, and will continue to make our concerns clear in bilateral interactions at all levels, where appropriate.</p> more like this

We will celebrate advancements in the rights of LGBT people around the world, including in Cuba where the newly adopted constitution includes protection against discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity, and which allows for a future debate and potentially legislation legalising same sex marriage. We are committed to the expansion of the current 40 strong ERC membership and will consider plans for new members when we take over as co-chair from Canada.</p> more like this
