answer text <p>The UK consistently reiterates its willingness to discuss scientific work in the British Indian Ocean Territory (BIOT) with Mauritius. The BIOT Marine Protected Area (MPA) is highly valued by scientists from many countries who consider it a global reference site for marine conservation in an ocean which is heavily overfished. Ministers are committed to further consultation with Mauritius about the establishment of the MPA in order to have due regard to its rights and interests, as directed by the Arbitral Tribunal of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. Implementation of the Tribunal’s Award started with a series of bilateral talks, the latest of which took place in August 2016.</p> more like this

answer text <p>A licence would not be issued to Saudi Arabia or any other destination if to do so would be inconsistent with any provision of the Consolidated EU and National Arms Export Licensing Criteria. The situation is kept under careful and continual review. As the Foreign Secretary has said, the Government condemns Jamal Khashoggi’s killing in the strongest possible terms. The Government remains clear that anyone found responsible must be held fully accountable. The UK was signatory to the joint statement on 7 March at the United Nations Human Rights Council which reiterated condemnation of the killing of Jamal Khashoggi. The statement called for investigations into the killing to be prompt, effective and thorough, independent and impartial, and transparent.</p> more like this
