star this property answer text <p>​The UK continues to do all it can to support the UN to implement the agreements reached in Stockholm and commend the efforts of the UN Special Envoy, Martin Griffiths, in this regard. We note the initial progress achieved by the parties towards phase one of the redeployment of forces in Hodeidah and urge the parties to take the necessary next steps, in accordance with the agreed concept of operations, towards full implementation of the Hodeidah Agreement. We also call on the parties to continue broader implementation of the Stockholm Agreement, including full adherence to the ceasefire in Hodeidah Governorate, as well as the finalization of arrangements for the Prisoner Exchange Agreement and the statement of understanding on Taiz.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Cuba's new constitution addresses freedom of religion or belief in Articles 15 and 57, and provides for protection against discrimination on the grounds of religious belief in Article 42. The new constitution was adopted on 10 April, following a referendum on 24 February and a public consultation exercise during which religious groups were consulted. We are concerned about reports from Christian Solidarity Worldwide that some religious groups were pressured to vote in favour of adoption of the constitution, although we believe that this pressure was common throughout Cuban society and not only confined to religious groups. The UK will continue to monitor human rights in Cuba, including freedom of religion or belief, in line with guarantees in the new constitution, and to discuss human rights regularly with the Cuban Government, bilaterally, through our continuing membership of the EU and multilateral human rights fora.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK, alongside Troika partners Norway and the USA made clear on 4 June that we condemn the violent attacks by Sudanese security forces against peaceful protestors in Sudan last week, which left many civilians dead or injured. We also condemn the recent looting of the UN mission’s West Darfur Headquarters and call for all to respect humanitarian principles. We are deeply concerned by reports that hospitals in Khartoum are being targeted by Sudanese security forces. It is unacceptable for injured civilians to be prevented access to medical facilities. These are not the actions of responsible and credible authorities representing the people of Sudan.</p><p>On 6 June, I summoned the Sudanese Ambassador to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to express our grave concerns at the use of all forms of violence, including sexual violence against civilians and medical professionals, by the Sudanese authorities. The UK has called for the human rights of all Sudanese people to be respected, the resumption of the political process leading to an agreed peaceful transfer of power to a civilian-led government, as demanded by the Sudanese people.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK continues to engage with a range of opposition and members of the protest movement, as well as the Transitional Military Council (TMC). We have frequently called for the Sudanese authorities, both in public and directly with them in Khartoum, to ensure that peaceful protests are not met with violence and that those responsible for the injuries and deaths of protestors are held to account. The UK, alongside Troika partners Norway and the US, has called for all sides to engage in an inclusive dialogue that leads to a swift, orderly and peaceful transition to civilian rule. On 4 June in a joint Troika statement, we condemned the recent violent attacks by Sudanese security forces against peaceful protestors in Sudan which left many civilians dead or injured. We also expressed serious concern over TMC's announcement that it would cease negotiations and called for an agreed transfer of power to a civilian-led government.</p><p>On 6 June, I summoned the Sudanese Ambassador to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to express our grave concerns at the use of violence against civilians by the Sudanese authorities.

We will continue to engage with all sides to support a settlement that works for all Sudanese people.</p><p>The UK also continues to promote comprehensive peace negotiations through our role in the Troika. Alongside the US and Norway we engage regularly with the African Union (AU), building on long standing support to the AU's mediation efforts to encourage peace and security in Sudan.</p>

star this property answer text <p>​The UK is deeply concerned by reports of human rights violations and abuses in the North-West and South-West (Anglophone) regions of Cameroon. The British Government was shocked by footage released in July 2018, although subsequently dated to 2015, showing alleged Boko Haram supporters being killed in northern Cameroon. I condemned these horrific killings in a public statement and urged the Government of Cameroon to ensure those responsible face justice. Seven soldiers have subsequently been arrested. The British Government continues to raise concerns about human rights violations and abuses at the highest levels, including at the UN Security Council on 4 June at a briefing of the UN Office for Central Africa. The UK along with Austria led a cross-regional statement raising concerns at the UN Human Rights Council in March. We welcome the recent visit to Cameroon by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Government of Cameroon's reported openness to working with the UN to address the severe humanitarian situation and tackle violations and abuses of human rights. While the UK has a shared interest in cooperating with Cameroon in the fight against Boko Haram and Islamic State West Africa, we continue to keep our cooperation under constant review.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We are following developments in the Eastern Mediterranean with concern. We would like to see the situation deescalated. I raised the issue of Turkey's planned drilling in waters around Cyprus with the Turkish Ambassador in London and the British Ambassador to Ankara has engaged with the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs to urge de-escalation. We have been clear with Turkey both publicly and privately that we oppose their plans to drill. We also continue to recognise the sovereign right of the Republic of Cyprus to exploit the oil and gas in its internationally agreed Exclusive Economic Zone.</p><p>We believe it is critical for stability in the Mediterranean and for the integrity of the rules-based international system that disputes such as this are resolved, not through force, militarisation or coercion, but through dialogue and in accordance with international law. We will continue to work with the Republic of Cyprus and the wider region to that end. We continue to attach the utmost importance to securing a long-term settlement to the division of Cyprus and urge all parties to look for ways by which the development of the island's resources can support the search for a settlement for the benefit of all Cypriots.</p>
