star this property answer text The Tunisian Ministry of Interior has stated that several hundred people were arrested for instances of violence and looting of property during the protests, and that many of these people have since been released. The right to peaceful protest is enshrined in the Tunisian Constitution and, where arrests have been made, we encourage Tunisia to ensure that the response by security forces is proportionate and the subsequent judicial processes in line with the rule of law and international obligations. more like this

star this property answer text I have been closely following the situation in Tunisia. I am of course concerned at the reports of violence and looting that occurred at some protests last week. But the vast majority of protesters, thousands of ordinary Tunisians, demonstrated peacefully, including on the anniversary of the country’s 2011 revolution, on 14 January. Addressing the issues underlying the Tunisian people’s concerns - unemployment, economic opportunity and regional disparities - through investment and economic reform, is the best way to ensure stability. The UK will continue to support Tunisia in doing so. more like this

star this property answer text <p>The use of chemical weapons in Syria is a serious challenge facing the international community. The UK fully supports the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in its work to investigate cases of chemical weapons use, and to verify Syria’s Declaration of its chemical weapons programme under the Chemical Weapons Convention. As a member of the OPCW Executive Council, the UK has raised our concerns repeatedly and has called on Syria to comply with the Convention, for the illegal use of chemical weapons in Syria to stop immediately, and for those responsible to be held to account. We will continue to raise these issues in future meetings of the OPCW.</p> more like this
