Dr Julian Lewis: Now that the caliphate has been overthrown, Daesh reverts to a more traditional form of terrorism requiring long-term containment measures. In order to bring this to an end, a lot depends on who is sponsoring terrorist movements. What evidence do we have of Turkish behaviour towards our Kurdish allies in Syria, and what evidence do we have of Pakistan finally turning its back on an ambivalent approach to Islamist terrorist movements?
[The Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs and First Secretary of State (Dominic Raab): I thank my right hon. Friend, the Chair of the other Select Committee – the Intelligence and Security Committee – and he is right to raise both those issues. It is difficult for me to talk, as he will understand, about evidence as such, but in both cases we have to monitor it very carefully, not least because both of the countries and forces that he referred to do not often represent a single whole – there will be different views within, for example, the Pakistani Government – but, certainly, we feel that there has been an improvement and a recognition that we face a single global threat that we must all rally round and work together to tackle.]
