star this property answer text <p>We are deeply concerned by the tensions in the Gulf. The continuation of this dispute which threatens the long-term security, stability and economies of States in the region is in no-one's interests. This is why the British Government wants to see Gulf unity restored and for all parties to take steps to build confidence.</p><p>That means Qatar's neighbours must ensure their demands are measured and realistic. Qatar also needs to take steps to engage on the substance of its neighbours' concerns and build on the progress already made on counter-terrorism and counter-radicalisation in partnership with other Gulf countries.</p><p>The Prime Minister, the Foreign Secretary and I have spoken regularly to our counterparts in the region, as well as to US, French and EU partners. We want to support the Gulf Cooperation Council countries in finding a swift solution.</p> more like this

FCO officials regularly discuss how the UK can work towards a just and lasting settlement with their Cypriot and UN counterparts. We are urging all sides to take time to reflect calmly on the outcome of the talks and in the meantime to refrain from rhetoric or actions that limit the possibility of future talks towards a settlement. The Government will continue to work to support a settlement in Cyprus that will benefit all Cypriots.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is strongly supportive of a just and lasting settlement in Cyprus that will benefit all Cypriots. For that reason, the UK fully supported the UN-facilitated Conference on Cyprus this summer. The Foreign Secretary and I had productive discussions with all parties at the Conference to help resolve the remaining issues. In the end it was not possible to bridge the gaps between all parties. It will be up to all parties concerned to agree next steps. We are encouraging both Cypriot communities to reflect calmly on the way forward. We are also urging all parties to refrain from rhetoric and actions that limit the possibility of future talks towards a settlement. In the meantime, the UK is continuing to support a settlement, including through our deployment of military personnel to the UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP), and through practical assistance to help the two sides move towards a settlement.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK has a long standing policy of opposing the death penalty in all circumstances. This was reflected in the UK's support for the Resolution on the Death Penalty at the thirty sixth session of the Human Rights Council in September 2017. The UK Permanent Representation engaged with a broad cross-section of the Council's membership on the Resolution. This included engagement with the US Permanent Representation to the UN in Geneva, rather than at the level of foreign ministers. The UK Government was pleased to see twenty-seven members of the Human Rights Council vote in favour of the Resolution.</p> more like this

While the Foreign Secretary has not met the Mayor of Sirte, he did meet Libyan representatives of the Libya Mine Action Centre involved in demining efforts in Sirte during his August visit. The British Ambassador to Libya last met the Mayor of Sirte on 4 October in Tripoli. The Ambassador and other Foreign Office officials regularly provide updates and advice to the Foreign Secretary on developments in Libya.</p><p>The UK remains committed to helping the people of Sirte rebuild their lives and to recover from the damage caused by Daesh. In August, the Foreign Secretary outlined a package of support, including £4 million worth of assistance to help clear unexploded ordnance and landmines.</p>
