star this property answer text <p>The human rights situation in Iran is a serious concern and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has designated Iran as a human rights priority country. The latest report by the UN Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in Iran sets out the role of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) in human rights violations in Iran, in particular, their role in the harassment and detention of minority groups. Several prominent members of the IRGC are listed under EU human rights sanctions and I was able to raise our wider human rights concerns with my Iranian counterpart during my visit to Tehran in August this year.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is aware of reports that Iran has provided the Houthis with ballistic missiles. These reports are deeply concerning, and it is essential that the UN investigates them fully. The UK strongly condemns Houthi missile attacks on Saudi Arabia, including the ballistic missile attempt of 4 November. Such attacks prolong the conflict in Yemen, fuel regional tensions and undermine UN efforts to reach a political solution.</p><p>The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and associated entities are known to be involved in multiple regional conflicts, including operating through proxies. The Government is clear that Iran should cease disruptive involvement in regional conflicts, and should instead look to play a constructive role in regional stability.​</p> more like this

This emphasises the importance of improving infection control, hygiene and sanitation in health facilities, which is key for the prevention of infections and AMR. In addition, we continue to support millions of people to get access to household sanitation and hygiene which will help reduce disease and so demand for antibiotics.</p> more like this

Furthermore, a large number of individuals and entities are also designated because of their support for, or links to, the IRGC.

star this property answer text <p>A political settlement remains the only means for bringing long-term stability to Yemen – there is no military solution to the conflict. The Yemeni parties must engage constructively and in good faith to overcome obstacles and find a political solution to end the conflict. The UK continues to play a leading role in international efforts to achieve this goal. The Foreign Secretary discusses the military and political situation in Yemen with the Foreign Ministers of the United States of America, United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia regularly, and most recently on 23 January at our Embassy in Paris. In June last year the UK sponsored and coordinated a UN Security Council Presidential Statement, agreed on 15 June, which called upon the parties to the conflict to agree the modalities for a ceasefire, take steps to address the humanitarian crisis and restart political talks. We are now working urgently with our international and regional partners to ensure that the Security Council's words are converted into action. We support the appointment of the new UN Special Envoy for Yemen, and will work urgently to assist his efforts.</p><p> </p>
