Truss pressed on questioning Middle East on human rights

The foreign secretary said she was "trying to remember", when asked to name what human rights issues she had raised with Gulf state leaders.

Ms Truss called them "partners of the UK" and said they were "important allies of the UK".BBC News: Human Rights
