Both countries committed themselves to finalising a broad bilateral association agreement, which was signed on 4 October. This Agreement will provide a comprehensive framework for the growing trade between our countries and strengthen cooperation on political dialogue, democracy, education, trade, environment and human rights. The Joint Communique of the Forum, providing further details of its conclusions, has been published on gov.uk.</p><p>While no new measures relating to migration in Africa were agreed, we continue to work closely with Tunisia to address the issue of unmanaged migration from Africa to Europe and to help Tunisian authorities deal with this challenge.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The British Government has conducted an impact assessment for each listing under the EU Syria sanctions regime. These assessments were most recently considered collectively ahead of an EU annual review which concluded in June. The EU Syria sanctions regime prohibits the export of oil from Syria and support to that industry; and prohibits making economic resources (which may include oil) available to any designated person or entity. Exemptions and licences apply to this sanctions regime, in order to minimise any detrimental effects on ordinary Syrians, including to facilitate delivery of humanitarian aid. However, Syrians continue to suffer the Assad regime's economic mismanagement, for which the regime blames international sanctions. Sanctions remain a key lever to press the regime to engage seriously with the political process.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are deeply concerned that North Korea has conducted a submarine-launched ballistic missile test. This follows ten other sets of ballistic missile tests this year and is another clear violation of UN Security Council Resolutions. The UK Government has repeatedly expressed its concern at North Korea’s breaches of international law and has ensured UN Security Council consideration of the matter, most recently on Tuesday 27 August. We urge North Korea to cease these tests and engage in good faith with the United States. Until the dismantlement of North Korea’s nuclear and missile programmes, UN sanctions must remain in place and be fully enforced. It is our firm belief that complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation is the path to a peaceful and more prosperous future for the North Korean people.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Prime Minister has been consistently clear that safeguarding the rights of British nationals living in the EU after Brexit is a priority. We welcomed the commitments and action taken by the Republic of Cyprus government to safeguard the rights of British citizens in the event of a no deal. The British High Commission in Nicosia continues to work closely with the Republic of Cyprus on the detail of these arrangements. Under the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement, British nationals across the whole island of Cyprus can continue to exercise freedom of movement until the end of the transition period. In the event of a no deal, British nationals should still be able to cross the Green Line. The EU's Green Line regulations allow non-EU nationals to cross the line provided they have a valid travel document, and if required, a valid visa for the Republic. The Republic of Cyprus government is clear that travellers who enter Cyprus via an illegal port of entry are in breach of the national law.</p>
