UN Resolutions

Volume 457: debated on Thursday 8 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether any UN Resolutions requiring action by the UK Government have not been complied with; and if she will make a statement. (125818)

As a longstanding, committed and active member of the UN, the UK takes seriously all resolutions which are adopted by UN bodies. While the majority of these resolutions do not give rise to binding obligations, they are important expressions of the international community’s opinion on an issue. Only the UN Security Council can adopt binding resolutions. The Government considers that it is acting in compliance with all such legally-binding resolutions applicable to the UK.
