We also continue to meet regularly at senior level with both the Chinese authorities and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government to discuss the situation. I met Hong Kong Justice Secretary Rimsky Yuen on 14 October. <br><br>We have consistently called on all sides to ensure that the demonstrations are peaceful and in accordance with the law, including in my response to a Westminister Hall Debate on 22 October, in my Written Ministerial Statement of 13 October, and in a Foreign and Commonwealth Office statement on 2 October on the question of constitutional reform. We encourage all parties to engage in dialogue and work towards a consensus that allows a significant step forward for democracy.</p> more like this

We will also continue to highlight to the US government specific examples where Argentina’s approach to the Falkland Islands has a direct adverse impact on US as well as UK interests.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>On 29 April 2014, Cuba and the EU opened negotiations on a bilateral agreement on Political Dialogue and Cooperation in Havana. The UK supported the opening of negotiations with Cuba. The agreement will allow the EU to respond more effectively to Cuba’s ongoing process of change and modernisation by providing a stronger framework for political dialogue and improved cooperation. The defence and promotion of human rights and fundamental freedoms will remain central to the relationship. Two rounds of negotiations have so far taken place, led by the European External Action Service on the EU side. Our position during the negotiations has been balanced, constructive and supportive of the proposal.</p> more like this
