star this property answer text <p>We are grateful to the Bishop for setting out ambitious recommendations. The report has identified specific steps the British Government can take to address the issues faced by persecuted Christians around the world. I am pleased to confirm that the government has accepted the recommendations in full and work will now begin to implement them. This work will include exploring how best to deliver a new Security Council Resolution on protecting Christians in North Africa and the Middle East; and sanctioning those who persecute people for holding a religion or belief.</p> more like this

The Government disagrees with the judgment and has sought permission to appeal. In the meantime, we are carefully considering the implications of the judgment for decision-making. Whilst we do this we will not grant any new licences to Saudi Arabia or other coalition partners for exports of items that might be used in the conflict in Yemen.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​At this highly sensitive time in the region, there is an urgent need to restart the peace process between Israelis and Palestinians. After the recent outbreak of violence, I called for everyone to step back from the brink and to avoid escalating the situation further. We continue to urge restraint from all parties and welcome the return to calm in recent days. We strongly support the mediation efforts of the international community led by Egypt and the UN and urge continued talks aimed at finding an enduring peace in Gaza under the control of the Palestinian Authority. We regularly press both parties to resume direct negotiations towards a two-state solution. I last discussed the Middle East Peace Process with the Israeli Ambassador to the UK on 11 October.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​The Government condemns the atrocities that have taken place in Rakhine including the violence committed against children. The Foreign Secretary made clear to Burma's State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi in their meeting of 20 September that holding to account those responsible for atrocities was of critical importance. The UK co-sponsored the UN Human Rights Council Resolution of 27 September that established a mechanism to collect and preserve evidence of human rights violations in Burma for use in future prosecutions. The UK ensured the Head of the UN Fact Finding Mission was invited to brief the UN Security Council on 24 October. The UK will continue to look at accountability options and work with our international partners to support those assisting victims and building evidence.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​Her Majesty's Government is concerned about reports of the growth of unregistered, unlicensed and unmonitored orphanages overseas, where the risk of exploitation is high. Any UK organisations who are involved in fundraising efforts for overseas institutions should rigorously check with local authorities in the relevant country as to whether the institutions are registered. We are considering how our Embassies and High Commissions can facilitate contact between UK organisations and local authorities, including through Travel Advice. They also take account of sensibilities around faith-group involvement in such work</p><p> </p> more like this

We firmly believe that the best way to achieve this is through gradual multilateral disarmament negotiated using a step-by-step approach and within the framework of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). The near-universal NPT has played an unparalleled role in curtailing the nuclear arms race. The UK will attend the next Preparatory Committee for the 2020 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference in April 2018 where we will use that forum to engage with a wide range of states on how we can together tackle the challenges that we face on non-proliferation and disarmament.</p> more like this
