During the UK-Sudan Strategic Dialogue (16 October), we welcomed the Sudanese Government's extension of their unilateral cessation of hostilities and urged them to extend it further. We have welcomed their acceptance of the US proposal to provide humanitarian aid to the Two Areas (South Kordofan, where the Nuba Mountains are located, and Blue Nile). We continue to urge the SPLM-N to immediately agree to the US proposal.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK does not have consular representation in 48 nation states. Under the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) Article 23, EU Member States should provide consular assistance to EU citizens not represented by their own state, in third countries, on the same basis as their own nationals. We do not hold reliable data about where other EU member states assist UK citizens. In many of these 48 states, the UK also has local, bilateral agreements with non-EU international partners to ensure unrepresented UK nationals have access to consular assistance.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Foreign and Commonwealth Office assesses that Somalia has made some progress towards upholding and protecting human rights, including freedom of religion or belief. However, there continue to be serious violations and abuses and a culture of impunity persists. The British Government has not made specific representations to the Somali Government on protection of religious freedoms, but has consistently called for the protection of all human rights in Somalia and for the Somali Government to fulfil its international obligations and commitments. This includes the UK statement at the 36th session of the UN Human Rights Council on 27 September 2017 and in the communiqué of the London Somalia Conference held in May 2017.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Within Eritrea, only four traditional religious organisations (Orthodox Christian, Sunni Muslim, Catholic, and the Lutheran Evangelical Church of Eritrea) have official approval to operate. Whilst this allows for the majority of Eritreans to worship freely, we are aware of reports that individuals from non-sanctioned religions are subject to detention, although reliable information is very difficult to obtain. Details of such detentions are not publicly released by the Eritrean government. We are also aware that a number of religious schools have been closed in recent months. Our Ambassador and EU counterparts have called for the release of all prisoners detained for religious beliefs or, as a minimum, that they are brought before a court for public hearing and fair trial, allowing them to defend themselves against any charge.</p> more like this
