Ian Pearson: The European Union Election Observation Mission, along with other international observers, considered the first round of presidential elections to have been peaceful and generally well administered in line with international principles for democratic elections. On 23 June the UN Security Council expressed its satisfaction with the peaceful and orderly manner in which the polls took place. We welcome the fact that all candidates have now accepted the results of the poll and encourage all parties in Guinea-Bissau to continue to respect the democratic process when the second round of elections takes place on 24 July.
Mr. Rob Wilson: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what steps he has taken to facilitate the trial of former Liberian President Charles Taylor for violation of international humanitarian law.
