Quotes from the news wire:
I hope that as the militia groups come inside the tent ... and cooperate with the government, it will be possible for us and our partners to support a military training programme in the future, i'm confident that if the conditions are right for that training programme to take place in Libya, or in a neighbouring country, that will be more successful than trying to do it in Europe.
I strongly condemn North Korea's ballistic missile technology test. This is a clear and deliberate violation of a number of U.N. Security Council Resolutions. North Korea's actions continue to present a threat to regional and international security, the U.N. Security Council unanimously agreed to take significant measures against any further launches or nuclear tests. We will now meet with our partners in New York to agree a collective response.
If we ca n’t get the commitments we need from our European partners on things like Britain being outside the commitment to ever-closer union, if we ca n’t get these things then as the prime minister has said, we rule nothing out, that’s why the package will have to be a robust, substantial and irreversible package of change with proper binding legal force. Because if we try to put to the British people a package which is anything less, we will get a raspberry from them.
There will need to be some more flexibility shown by our Iranian partners if we are going to reach a deal, but, look, this is a negotiation, we always expected it would go right to the line and maybe beyond the line, so I think the serious negotiations are now getting under way and over the next week or so I hope we will start to see some real progress.

This video footage exposes Assad's lies on barrel bombs. It shows the casual and indiscriminate way in which Syrian regime forces are dropping these horrific weapons out of helicopters onto civilians below, we will bring those involved in these criminal acts to justice and will continue to help those caught in attacks by continuing our support of rescue teams working on the ground.
