star this property answer text <p>Security related estimates were based on comparable military facilities in similarly remote locations. The consultation document made clear that these estimates would need to be refined following a detailed assessment. As set out in the Exchange of Notes with the United States concerning the British Indian Ocean Territory, the employment of contract personnel on Diego Garcia is the responsibility of the United States.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is clear about its sovereignty of the Chagos Archipelago, which it administers as the British Indian Ocean Territory (BIOT), and strongly rejects Mauritius' claim that the Territory is part of Mauritius. This is a bilateral issue and we are committed to resolving it through bilateral discussions. We are disappointed that the UN General Assembly has referred this bilateral issue to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) for an Advisory Opinion. This is an inappropriate use of the ICJ Advisory Opinion mechanism and sets an unwelcome precedent for other bilateral issues. We will robustly defend our position at the ICJ.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Mauritius amended its Constitution in 1982 to include the Chagos Archipelago (which the UK administers as the British Indian Ocean Territory) within its Territory. The Government of Mauritius repeatedly makes the claim both in public and private that the Chagos Archipelago is part of Mauritius. Most recently Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth made this point during his speech at the UN General Assembly in September. The UK is clear about its sovereignty of the British Indian Ocean Territory and strongly rejects Mauritius' claim that the Territory is part of Mauritius.</p> more like this
