star this property answer text <p>We are very concerned by the arrest on 5 July and remanding in custody of Amnesty International's Turkey Director Idil Eser and five other human rights defenders in Turkey. We also remain deeply concerned at the detention of Taner Kilic, Amnesty International's Turkey Chair. The Foreign Secretary urged their release in his speech in Sydney on 27 July. As the Minister for Europe and the Americas set out in his recent statement on these arrests, both the Foreign Secretary and the Prime Minister have raised these arrests in recent discussions with Turkish counterparts. He has also raised the matter with the Turkish Ambassador to London. We continue to urge the Turkish authorities to uphold international standards with regard to the rule of law, including the presumption of innocence, and to protect fundamental rights including freedom of expression and assembly.</p> more like this

The UK already meets the Defence Investment Pledge target of spending more than 2% of GDP on Defence and welcomes the commitment of all Allies to include this in their national plans. The UK's significant contribution to NATO activities includes an enhanced Forward Presence in Estonia and capacity building work in Partner countries to build resilience against threats such as terrorism; the UK fully supports NATO's membership of the Global Coalition against Daesh.</p> more like this
