We acknowledge that the Jewish community has experienced unacceptable suffering. We continue to support the aspiration for a Jewish homeland in the modern state of Israel, just as we support the objective of a viable and sovereign Palestinian state. A peaceful future for the Middle East depends on a peace agreement that offers fair restitution for both sides, and a willingness on the part of all countries in the region to respect the rights of minorities and build inclusive societies which enshrine and uphold those rights.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We closely followed the October 2018 detention in Thailand of approximately 100 people, mainly from Pakistan, whom the Thai authorities considered illegal immigrants. This followed arrests and refoulment of Cambodian and Vietnamese nationals in August 2018.</p><p>On 2 November 2018, the Minister of State for the Commonwealth and UN, Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon, spoke to the Thai ambassador in London to raise our concerns over the detention of foreign nationals, including nationals of Pakistan, in Thailand. The British Embassy Bangkok also raised the issues with the Ministry of the Interior. We believe that the actions of the Thai authorities are not aimed at any specific group or groups, but apply to anyone whom they deem an illegal visa over-stayer. The UK has repeatedly urged Thailand to sign the 1951 UN Convention on Refugees. The UNHCR are working closely with the Royal Thai Government over asylum, resettlement issues, and improving conditions for genuine claimants, for example by giving them documentation that allows them to access services and protected them from persecution. We are also working with the Thai authorities to improve conditions of detention.</p><p>​</p>

Cefas also procured a deep-water camera system to provide data for baselining and monitoring of Marine Protected Areas, including evaluating the impacts of fishing gear on habitats.</p><p>In 2017/18, Cefas assisted the Tristan da Cunha Government with the planning and implementation of a marine protection strategy including an extensive programme of work to help the OT sustainably manage existing and developing fisheries, supporting the local economy. In collaboration with British Antarctic Survey and the OT Governments, Cefas planned and implemented scientific surveys in Tristan and St Helena maritime areas. Cefas also instigated tagging programmes for commercially exploited tuna and grouper species in the St Helena waters, which are providing valuable data on the ecology of these species. Cefas has recently undertaken a camera survey of the South Georgia MPA to investigate the impact of longline fishing gear on the marine ecosystem. Cefas assisted the British Indian Ocean Territory Administration in developing a detailed marine management plan for the existing MPA. Cefas has also providing training to staff from Ascension Island, Tristan da Cunha and St Helena and procured safety equipment for staff and vessels working in the Tristan and St Helena maritime zones.</p>
