The latest @UNCoISyria report confirms more appalling war crimes were committed by the Russian-backed Assad regime and terrorist groups in #Idlib. All parties must adhere to agreed ceasefires. This flagrant disregard for human life and international law must stop

It’s more important than ever for πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ to work closely with Saudi Arabia during their #G20 presidency year. Good to speak again with Foreign Minister Prince @FaisalbinFarhan about issues in the region, the conflict in Yemen, human rights and the international response to Covid-19

Devastated and deeply saddened by the news of the killing of Husham Al Hashimi. Iraq has lost one of its very best - a thoughtful and brave man. These attacks cannot continue. The government - supported by the international community - must hold the perpetrators to account. https://t.co/JTqMcYggZG

Shocked by the killing of respected Iraqi commentator Husham Al Hashimi in Baghdad. My thoughts are with his family at this sad time. We expect the Iraqi Government to bring those responsible to justice: those exercising their right to freedom of expression must be protected. https://t.co/5b0tJpp9VE

Important discussions on the Middle East Peace Process & the UK’s support for a two state-solution and other regional issues with Egyptian FM Shoukry today. The πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ remains committed to furthering our strong ties with πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡¬ to tackle the wider challenges posed by #coronavirus

We look forward to working with our existing European partners and cooperate with others, including the US and Canada, who use sanctions to address human rights violations or abuses

We will continue to consider a range of approaches to respond to human rights issues globally and we will explore the future use of our autonomous sanctions powers. This is a first step

Those sanctioned were involved in some of the most appalling human rights violations and abuses seen by the international community in recent years.
