Our engagement with the Burmese military has been focused on educational training, designed to instil knowledge and awareness in the military of the requirement to observe human rights and the rule of international humanitarian law. However, the Prime Minister announced the Government's decision to suspend this engagement on 19 September, sending a clear message to the Burmese military that there must be an immediate end to the violence in Rakhine and full humanitarian access allowed.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The UK Government regularly raises with the Government of Israel concerns about the situation for Palestinians in East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza, and pushes for an easing of restrictions. We are firmly committed to the promotion and protection of human rights, and call upon all parties to abide by International Humanitarian Law. Ultimately peace will only come through fresh negotiations between the parties, which the UK fully supports, and it is critical that Israel and the Palestinians take advantage of any momentum gathered through international efforts.</p> more like this

Where we do have concerns we do not shy away from raising them. Saudi Arabia has had its own painful experiences as the victim of numerous Daesh attacks. It is a key ally in the fight against Daesh, participating in coalition airstrikes to fight it and speaking out against its poisonous ideology.</p> more like this
