Foreign Secretary William Hague chaired the first meeting of the new Human Rights Advisory Group yesterday.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

Speaking after the meeting William Hague said:

“The new Advisory Group on Human Rights has had an excellent start. This government is determined to champion the effective promotion of human rights. We discussed a wide range of human rights issues relating to conflict, security, counter-terrorism, and political and religious freedom, as well as specific countries of concern and broader strategic trends. I am confident that the group will be an important addition to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s work. I thank all the members of the group for their participation and look forward to our next meeting.”
