star this property answer text <p>Israeli restrictions damage the economy and living standards of ordinary people in Gaza. There remains an urgent need for all the parties to reach an agreement that addresses the underlying causes of the conflict in Gaza. This should ensure that Hamas and other militant groups permanently end rocket fire and other attacks against Israel and that Israel lifts its restrictions to allow the Gazan economy to grow. We welcome the recent positive steps that Israel has taken to ease some restrictions. However, we want to see Israel go much further, and we are continuing to call on Israel to do so.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​Her Majesty’s Government advises against all travel to Somalia, except for the cities of Hargeisa and Berbera. The British Embassy in Mogadishu and the British Office in Hargeisa are currently unable to provide consular assistance in Somalia or Somaliland. The UK’s ability to offer consular support to British Nationals in Somalia or Somaliland or establish with certainty the activities undertaken in “rehabilitation centres” is therefore extremely limited. However the High Commission in Nairobi has in the past provided limited consular assistance, including to those who had previously attended “rehabilitation centres&quot;.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​I was deeply concerned by the violence we saw in Dhaka in response to road safety protests by students following the tragic deaths of two school age students on 29 July. In a statement on 7 August, the British High Commissioner to Bangladesh, Alison Blake, together with other EU Heads of Mission, called on government to investigate incidents of unlawful or disproportionate violence or action against protestors and journalists and to hold perpetrators to account. Subsequently, Joint Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Department for International Development Minister Alistair Burt expressed our concern regarding the response to the road safety protests with the Government of Bangladesh, during his visit to Bangladesh from 28-31 August. Bangladesh remains a Human Rights Priority Country for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. We raised freedom of expression as a key concern in Bangladesh during the UN Human Rights Council Universal Periodic Review.</p> more like this
