Nuclear Weapons (International Relations Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Jul 2019)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ...regime is under pressure, and the evidence we took showed that the risk of the use of nuclear weapons is a factor in international relations in a way not seen since the end of the Cold War. Arms control agreements are collapsing. Clear proof of that is given by the highly regrettable announcement by the US of its unilateral withdrawal from the JCPOA, which after all was multilaterally...

Yemen: Giving Peace a Chance (International Relations Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (1 Apr 2019)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ...the Foreign Office and DfID set out their joint statement on the fourth anniversary of the intervention by the Saudi-led coalition in the Yemen conflict. I shall focus today on the impact of the war on women and girls, who have been disproportionately affected by the conflict and the humanitarian crisis and the role they could play in the peace process. I welcome the remarks made by the...

Philippines - Question for Short Debate (24 Jan 2019)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ...congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Hylton, on securing this short debate. When President Duterte took office, it was on the back of a campaign in which, as the noble Lord said, he swore to launch a war on the drugs and violence which threatened the stability of the state—but what followed was the use of policies that are contrary to human rights. The Foreign Office says that in his first...

South Sudan - Question for Short Debate (4 Jul 2018)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ...words of South Sudanese Member of Parliament Martha Martin Dar are much in my thoughts. She and I were delegates at the Women Political Leaders Summit in Lithuania last month. Martha described the war as a man-made political battle for power and wealth—a war that uses sexual and gender-based violence as a weapon. She is exasperated by those who sell arms to both sides and prolong the...

NATO Summit 2018 - Motion to Take Note (26 Jun 2018)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ...’s summit. I joined the committee after the production of this report, but I support its observations and conclusions entirely. It is a privilege to be a member of the committee, and I look forward to contributing to its future reports. I grew up in the post-Second World War era. The Cold War was a reality for my generation of schoolchildren. I remember well the sirens sounding in the...

Iraq: Religious and Ethnic Minorities - Question for Short Debate (11 Jan 2018)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: My Lords, I am grateful to the right reverend Prelate for securing this debate in such a timely way, just a month after the announcement by the Prime Minister of Iraq that the war against armed groups there was over, as he said. So today we can focus on what it means to “win the peace” while being aware of the problems that crucially still face Iraq. Daesh no longer holds significant...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: North Korea: Human Rights (19 Apr 2017)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ...legal professionals about how this evidence could be used in any future internationally agreed framework for accountability.

Syria: Chemical Weapons - Private Notice Question (5 Apr 2017)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: My Lords, where action is taken purposely to bomb civilians it is a war crime and something that we would condemn. I would mention, with regard to Mosul, that I am aware of the recognition there that the Iraqi forces have taken every step they could to avoid hitting civilians, against an enemy that uses civilians as human shields.

Syria - Question (20 Mar 2017)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: My Lords, the war in Syria started six years ago. Today, violence continues and the Syrian people are suffering. We urge those with influence on the regime to secure an end to the military campaign and ensure unhindered humanitarian access. We welcome the resumed UN-led talks. Only a political settlement will end the war. We remain at the forefront of international action to help the Syrian...

Syria - Question (20 Mar 2017)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ...see the Assad regime as bringing benefits to the Syrian people. This is a regime which has been found by a series of independent United Nations reports to have used chemical weapons and committed war crimes against the Syrian people. The regime is currently denying humanitarian aid to 1.4 million Syrians living in siege-like conditions. The UN has found it responsible for bombing an aid...

Syria - Question (20 Mar 2017)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: My Lords, I entirely agree with the noble Lord that as a member of the international community it is right that we hold to account all those who commit war crimes; that is, both Daesh and the regime, and any of the very extreme groups with which the UK does not have contact as such. Otherwise, there cannot be a long-term solution. Therefore, I can give the noble Lord an assurance that we give...

Where timely and decisive action to end, or prevent, the commission of genocide, crimes against humanity or war crimes is necessary, the UK is active in calling for UN action. The UK’s support for the International Criminal Court and other international tribunals also helps to ensure there is no impunity for the...

South Sudan - Question (1 Feb 2017)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: I am absolutely ready to give that undertaking, and I am glad to hear the noble Lord’s support. He is right that this has been, in a sense, an almost forgotten tragedy. I am very much reminded of the report by the chair of the Commission on Human Rights in South Sudan, Yasmin Sooka, when she said that, “it is conceivable that the scale of sexual violence … already matches that of the...

Sudan - Question (23 Jan 2017)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ...hear about the release of the Reverend Kwa Shamal but remain very concerned about the fate of the three men who remain in detention charged with a number of crimes, including espionage and waging war against the Government.

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ..., also called the rules-based international order, describes the system brought into being by the United States, the UK and other allies and partners in response to the horrors of the Second World War. I was born after the Second World War, but my father fought in it. I grew up in that atmosphere of recognising how we had to work together to avoid such a horror ever occurring again. At...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Iran: Sanctions (15 Nov 2016)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: As well as implementing EU autonomous controls for which the UK imposes export controls (dual use goods, nuclear technology, sensitive software and technical assistance etc), the UK also has national export controls that go beyond the EU measures. In particular there are two controls that cover the aviation and marine sectors. The UK controls are contained on two lists: PL9008 for marine...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Syria: Armed Conflict (9 Nov 2016)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: The UK Government deplores the loss of civilian life in Syria since the conflict started in 2011. We condemn the actions of the Syrian regime and those who back it in prosecuting this awful war, which has caused widespread death, injury and humanitarian suffering. This conflict is feeding the migration challenges we see across Europe and fuelling extremism. I understand and share the concerns...
