Fox seeks stronger Gulf ties but move raises human rights concerns - FT.com:

As the international trade secretary presses ahead with informal discussions on future deals outside the EU after Britons voted to leave the bloc, Mr Fox has been seeking to highlight how deeper trade links with the Gulf should play a central role in the UK’s evolving trading strategy."
