unstar this property answer text <p>We are in regular contact diplomatically and at Ministerial level with the United States, to ensure we follow the best opportunities for an end to the conflict in Yemen. On 16 January, the UN Security Council, including the US, voted unanimously to back the UK-led Security Council Resolution 2452, which will establish a six month UN mission to monitor the Hodeidah ceasefire. This is an important step towards peace, building on the momentum of the unanimously adopted UK-led Security Council Resolution 2451 as well as the UN peace talks in Stockholm last month. We regularly discuss with our partners at the UN, including the US, how best we can support the implementation of these agreements to ensure that the Yemen peace agreements endure, though this is by no means guaranteed.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>On 22 January the Foreign Secretary announced an additional £2.5 million in funding to bolster the Yemeni peace process, including operations in Hodeidah city and port. This will complement UK diplomatic support for the UN, including through UK-led Security Council Resolutions 2451 and 2452, which build on the momentum generated by UN peace talks in Stockholm in December. We continue to discuss with the UN what further support the UK could provide as UN planning develops. It is important that all parties take steps to implement the Hodeidah Agreement in accordance with the UN Redeployment Coordination Committee and ensure unhindered access to food, medical and commercial supplies through the port of Hodeidah.</p> more like this

However, Foundation Level online learning on Religion and Diplomacy is a mandatory component of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's (FCO) fast stream induction programme. In addition, the FCO course on religion and diplomacy delivered by the London School of Economics is well advertised throughout the FCO and we actively encourage attendance by staff if their job relates to countries in which religion plays a significant part in social and political life.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>​We track commercial estimates of Iran's oil exports. Following implementation of the Iran nuclear deal (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) in January 2016, international sanctions on Iran's oil trade were lifted or suspended and oil exports increased. The US's re-imposition, in November 2018, of secondary sanctions against Iran's oil trade has led to a reduction in oil exports from Iran. We do not, however, routinely collate data on the revenue accrued to Iran from these exports, which is subject to multiple variables.</p> more like this
