We welcome the Foreign Affairs Committee's report and their acknowledgement of the UK's strong record in upholding human rights across the world. We will respond fully to the report in due course.
Human rights are essential to and indivisible from our foreign policy objectives. They are part of our national DNA and are woven deeply into the decision-making processes of our foreign policy at every stage. We cannot achieve long term security and prosperity unless we uphold our values.
