The UK is firmly committed to the promotion and protection of human rights and compliance with international law. We are considering our position on the conference. It is important that any conference of the High Contracting Parties to the Geneva Conventions takes a balanced and non politicised approach. It should consider any violations, including attacks emanating from the Occupied Palestinian Territories, and action by all parties (i.e. Israel, Hamas and other militant groups).
