|Born||24 September 1946|
In 2007, he gave a valedictory telegram which was "curtly dismissive" of the "war on terror". The response from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office was to ignore the substance of his telegram but ban the century-old practice of valedictory telegrams from British envoys.
In 2009, Roberts edited the sixth edition of Satow's Diplomatic Practice, originally written in 1917 by Sir Ernest Satow and widely used in embassies throughout the world (Oxford University Press: 2009; ISBN 978-0-19-955927-5). It was reviewed by Sir Jeremy Greenstock later the same year.
