Last quote by David Miliband

The US needs to decide what role it wants to play, and who it wants to ally with, in the debates about the future of those parts of Syria still outside government control, and the future shape of a national government.

David Miliband quotes

Countries like Greece both have to deal with the current wave of refugees who are here at the moment, about 40,000 to 50,000, but also ensure it's in a position in case more people come later this year or next year.feedback

I think there's been a big change in Iraq to do with the shift of groups that were committed to furthering their ends through violence, committing to the political process ahead of the elections in Iraq next March. That is the foundation of the release today.feedback

The Lisbon Treaty gives us the opportunity and the responsibility to play a major role in the world. I think that we need strong leadership to achieve that.feedback

I think that every country will consider for themselves what sort of person they want. That's the issue that we have to decide on first, and then the personalities come later. I think very strongly it is not a competition between large and small countries. This is about a common European interest.feedback

I think it's very important that we preserve the fundamental principle of our intelligence relationships, not just with the US, but with other countries, which is that if we give them our secrets they protect them, and if they give us their secrets we protect them as well.

The elections on August 20 need to be both credible and inclusive. These will be the first Afghan-led elections since the 1970s. We are all doing all we can to help ensure that the process is as credible and fair as possible, with additional troops, with election observers as well.feedback

I want to say on behalf on the British Government, that we are absolutely determined to be part of a coord (interrupted) … process that brings further tangible benefits to the people of Gibraltar and the people of Spain as well.feedback

I think there is unity here that it is for the Iranian people to choose their government, but it's for the Iranian government to protect their people. And the violence that we have seen over the last 10 days – the killings and the beatings – are deplorable and they show a failure to protect their own people.feedback

I think that Britain needs strong and progressive government more than ever, and I think that the prime minister and the rest of us have a big responsibility to provide that, and that applies on the domestic scene and the international scene.feedback

The responsibility for a resolution of the Middle East conflict does not fall to Israel and the Palestinians, though they must lead the process. It falls to every state in the region, for the only sustainable peace must be a 23 state solution, not just a two state solution.feedback

The Democratic Republic of Congo government should take proper command of its forces, honour its obligations under the Nairobi accords and establish channels of communication with all communities in the country and all its neighbours. The Nairobi agreement also requires active steps from the government of Rwanda and we look to the government there to fulfill its reponsibilities.feedback

There are 17,000 UN troops in the country at the moment. What we do need to do is make sure that those troops are redeployed in the regions that are under great stress, so the humanitarian aid can get in. But we also know that while Humanitarian aid depends on security, security depends on a proper political process.feedback

But today is the day for political clarity from leaders around the world and that is what we want.feedback

Russia has failed to show any legal reasons under Russian or international law why the British Council should not continue to operate. Therefore, instead of taking legal action against the council, the Russian government has resorted to the intimidation of council's staff. We saw similar actions during the Cold War but frankly thought that they had been put behind us.feedback
