Volume 456: debated on Tuesday 6 February 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations she has received on the Kenyan Government's decision to seal its border with Somalia. (111587)

We are aware of concerns about the possible impact on refugee flows of Kenya's decision to close its border with Somalia. We have raised this matter with the Kenyan authorities. While recognising Kenya's legitimate security concerns, we call on all states to comply with their international obligations to refugees.
