star this property answer text <p>We remain deeply concerned by the situation in Libya and reports of violence in Libyan detention centres. The UK is clear that all parties to the conflict must commit to a ceasefire, ensure unconditional humanitarian access, and return to political talks. All parties to the conflict must do all they can to prevent any further loss of life, including by respecting their obligations under International Humanitarian Law, and evacuating those at risk to safety. The UK has announced a contribution of £1 million to the UN Flash Appeal. This includes: funding to the World Health Organisation to deliver life-saving medical care; and funding to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs to improve humanitarian access for agencies on the ground. The UN Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) has released $2 million to provide life-saving assistance to civilians caught up in the fighting, including vulnerable migrants and refugees. The UK was the biggest donor to the CERF in 2018, providing £114.3 million.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK Government currently supports the EU's Operation Sophia through the provision of staff to its Operational Headquarters, although Operation Sophia's naval operations are currently suspended. There is no evidence of an increase in the volumes of migrants seeking to cross the central Mediterranean from Libya to Europe. However, we are monitoring this situation closely. The UK Government continues to call on all parties to the conflict in Libya to commit to a ceasefire, ensure humanitarian access to aid the voluntary evacuation of civilians, and a return to the political process.</p> more like this
