Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan Business Roundtable

In 2010, I was privileged to be appointed Personal Representative of the Chairman in Office of the OSCE - almost like a Roving Ambassador - by Kazakhstan, who held the rotating presidency that year. My remit was to draw up an extensive report on the environmental issues affecting the five Central Asian Republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. I travelled widely throughout Central Asia, visiting all 5 republics and also Afghanistan.

Human rights in Iran

Catherine Ashton’s ill-judged visit to Tehran last month to appease the mullahs, fell apart almost before she stepped off the plane, as news emerged of Israel intercepting a ship from Iran carrying dozens of long-range surface-to-surface rockets, assault weapons and hundreds of thousands of bullets, destined for terrorists linked with the Iranian regime in Gaza. Iran is the world’s leading exporter and bankroller of terrorists and their cat and mouse attempts to persuade Ashton and others that they have no intention of producing nuclear weapons is farcical.

Struan delivered the following speech at the Strasbourg Plenary Session on Thursday 13 March 2014.

The news which arrived late last night of a breakthrough in the long-running mackerel war saga is a welcome relief for Europe's pelagic sector and in particular, for Scotland's mackerel fleet.

Speech on Baroness Ashton's visit to Iran

I would like to enquire from the High Representative for Foreign Affairs what she achieved in visiting Tehran last weekend? Her visit coincided with Israel's interception of a ship from Iran carrying dozens of long-range surface-to-surface rockets, assault weapons and hundreds of thousands of bullets, destined for Palestinian militants in Gaza.
