To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what plans he has to raise human rights with the Eritrean Government in order to ensure that the new Eritrean citizens are protected from a loss of rights as a result of the agreement between Ethiopia and Eritrea over the relocation of Badme to Eritrea.

There has to date been no agreement between Ethiopia and Eritrea on the process by which the town of Badme will transfer from Ethiopian to Eritrean control, in line with the 2000 Algiers Agreement. We remain concerned about the human rights situation in Eritrea, and will continue to support the rights of all Eritreans.
