They also covered the hunger strikes in support of Abdullah Öcalan by Kurdish prisoners, including Leyla Guven MP. We are pleased to note that she was recently released from prison.

answer text <p>​I met Brazilian Foreign Minister Ernesto Araujo on 4 February and we discussed a range of topics. Our Embassy in Brasilia frequently engages with the Brazilian Government on human rights matters, including issues affecting indigenous peoples. The UK is proud to defend its values and will not shy away from expressing where we disagree. The UK's view is clear: human rights must be respected.</p> more like this
