star this property answer text <p>We have committed to provide financial support to Anguilla to create an electronic search platform providing access to beneficial ownership information, as well as support in drafting underpinning legislation. We are working with Anguilla to finalise a Memorandum of Understanding on the terms for provision of support for its beneficial ownership system, and expect that its system will be established in the spring of 2018. Delays have been caused by a need to ensure value for money in the provision of funding and to put in place legislative drafting assistance. In the interim, Anguilla will respond to any requests for information from UK law enforcement authorities.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​We fully support the rights of LGBTQI groups in Turkey. We regularly urge Turkey to work towards the full protection of fundamental rights, including with respect to freedom of expression and assembly, and will continue to do so. We are concerned by the recent ban by the Ankara authorities on LGBTQI-related activities in the city, as well as the banning of the Istanbul Pride march earlier this year. The British Embassy in Ankara provides project support to a number of Turkish civil society organisations working in the area of fundamental freedoms. In recent years we have funded projects on supporting freedom of expression, promoting women's and minority rights and LGBQTI issues.</p> more like this

I condemn the recent attacks and loss of life. All parties need to find a peaceful solution to the complex underlying causes of these incidents.</p><p>Inter-communal clashes between farmers and herdsmen in Nigeria, over land, farming rights, grazing routes and access to water have a devastating impact on lives and communities. We emphasise the importance of protecting civilians, including ethnic and religious minorities, with the Nigerian authorities, at the highest level. We welcome President Buhari's commitment to focus on bringing the perpetrators of such attacks to justice and examining longer term peaceful solutions to the conflict.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​The British Government is committed to raising concerns publicly, multilaterally and directly with the Russia Government, about human rights abuses committed by the &quot;de-facto&quot; Russian authorities against Crimean Tatars since the illegal annexation of Crimea. I regularly raise our concerns directly with the Russian Ambassador to the UK, and Foreign and Commonwealth Office Ministers will continue to raise our concerns with Russian counterparts. The UK has supported Ukraine in ensuring the persecution of Crimean Tatars remains in the international spotlight, most recently through our support of the successful resolution on the human rights situation in Crimea at the UN General Assembly's third committee in November.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p><br>The aim of Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) is to strengthen EU Member States' cooperation in military matters. PESCO is voluntary and works on an opt-in basis.</p><p>The UK Government has not committed to PESCO but supports its ambition to develop military capabilities that address the shortfalls in EU and NATO contexts. We welcome PESCO as a tool to support the development of capabilities that Europe needs for its security, provided it remains complementary to NATO and encourages EU-NATO cooperation; and that projects carried out under PESCO remain Member State-owned and the capabilities delivered are available not only to the EU but can also be used in support of NATO and UN operations.</p><p>There are no associated working groups but UK officials from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Ministry of Defence have attended PESCO workshops at both the technical and policy level.</p><p>We are encouraging Member States to develop PESCO to be open to third country participation where there is clear value in doing so.</p><p>Our vision is of a unique third country partnership that enables unprecedented levels of practical cooperation in tackling common threats building on our shared values and interests. We believe that PESCO must be designed in a way that promotes an open and competitive European Defence industry.</p><p>Our approach reflects our commitment to European defence and security, and protecting the interests of UK industry.</p>
