star this property answer text <p>No Ministerial level discussions have taken place with their counterparts on the conditions of Turkish prisons where British nationals are held. As mentioned on 1 August, a detained British national can contact our Embassy with any concerns about prison conditions and impact on their welfare. Consular staff will then raise these concerns directly with the appropriate authorities. We are not aware of any complaints raised by the Turkish authorities in the past five years with regards to the treatment of Turkish nationals in British jails.</p> more like this

This year we have raised several cases, mainly concerning human rights defenders and journalists. We will continue to engage with the Turkish authorities on these important human rights concerns.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​All nations have the right to exercise their armed forces, but it is essential that this is done in a transparent and predictable manner. VOSTOK demonstrates Russia's focus on exercising large-scale conflict. It fits into a pattern we have seen over some time: a more assertive Russia, significantly increasing its military capability and presence. The UK and our Allies are observing the exercise closely.</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
