unstar this property answer text <p>The primary barrier to the flow of arms to al Shabaab in Somalia is the UN Security Council (UNSC) arms embargo imposed with Resolution 733 in 1992. As a permanent member of the Security Council, the UK fully supports this embargo.</p><p>The partial suspension of the arms embargo in Resolution 2317 (2016) was designed to allow the Federal Government to obtain the equipment needed to develop the Somali national security forces, which are critical for Somalia's long-term security. Safeguards exist within the framework of the suspension. These include restrictions on heavy weaponry, monitoring mechanisms, and requirements to notify and report to the UN. The Monitoring Group's mandate was also extended, to 15 December 2018, in UNSC Resolution 2385 (2017). Individuals who abuse the suspension may also be listed under the sanctions regime.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>​The Donbas Reintegration law provides a mechanism for the Ukrainian Government to respond to the sustained military aggression by Russia and the separatists they support in their efforts to undermine Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity. All sides need to abide by their Minsk II Agreement commitments and we are concerned by Russian statements attempting to distance themselves from their very clear obligations.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The UK is deeply concerned by any reports of sanctions evasion, or of support to illegal Syrian weapons programmes. We are aware of the media reports and will be examining closely the findings of the UN Panel of Experts once its report has been published. The UK strongly condemns North Korea's illegal weapons programmes and proliferation activities. We are fully committed to ensuring the effective implementation of sanctions and exports controls, including on North Korea, and urge all others to do so.</p><p>We condemn all use of chemical weapons under any circumstances in Syria or anywhere else. The UK helped push for 16 new EU sanctions against individuals and entities linked to chemical weapons use in Syria following the Asad regime's sarin attack on Khan Sheikhoun. We are concerned by continuing allegations of chemical weapons use in Syria, and we continue to support a robust international response to identify and hold to account all those responsible for such chemical attacks.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>We are aware of reports of mortar shelling in and around Damascus, and condemn any attack on civilians. We welcome the unanimous adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 2401 on 24 February which calls for a 30-day ceasefire in Syria to allow for delivery of humanitarian aid and medical evacuations, which are urgently needed across Syria, but particularly in Eastern Ghouta. The main opposition armed groups have accepted the ceasefire, but we are appalled by reports that airstrikes have continued to take place in spite of the UN Security Council Resolution. The Asad regime is responsible for the vast majority of civilian deaths in Syria through the disproportionate and indiscriminate bombing of civilian areas, and according to the UN Commission of Inquiry, the deliberate targeting of civilian infrastructure, including medical facilities and schools. Those with influence over the regime must now ensure the ceasefire is implemented in full.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>​The UK is aware of reports alleging the detention and mistreatment of Sudanese nationals returning to Sudan from Belgium. In December 2017, shortly following these reports, the Belgian Commissioner-General for Refugees and Stateless Persons launched an inquiry regarding the risk in cases of return to Sudan. This inquiry has now completed its investigation, but has not been able conclusively to verify whether or not the allegations were accurate. It is vital that all individuals returning to Sudan are treated in accordance with international standards.</p> more like this

The UK fully supports the Action Plan set out by UN Special Representative Ghassan Salamé. Some important progress has been made in bringing together key Libyans to discuss how to implement the various elements of the Action Plan, but significant differences remain. The UK is playing an active role in international efforts to support Special Representative Salamé, including by encouraging Libyans to engage constructively in the UN-led process.</p> more like this

Daesh fighters – regardless of their nationality – should be brought to justice according to legal due process.</p><p>The Investigative Team established under UN Security Council Resolution 2379 will gather evidence of Daesh crimes, beginning in Iraq. The Terms of Reference for the UN Investigative Team have been agreed and I look forward to its deployment. The UK has contributed £1 million to support the establishment of this team. We are encouraging other States to contribute to it. The UK is funding a project that builds Iraqi organisations' capacity to document and present evidence of gender-based violence.</p><p>The Investigative Team will collect evidence of acts that may amount to war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide to the highest standards and ensure the broadest possible use of evidence. Iraq will be the primary intended recipient of the evidence, but it can be used to support prosecutions elsewhere. It may be that some form of international or hybrid justice mechanism may be appropriate in the future, but it is too early – and not for the UK alone – to pre-determine that.</p><p>We are working with the Iraqi judiciary to build their capacity. The Resolution calls on member states to provide similar support. The UN will soon deploy a 'Needs Assessment Mission' to Iraq to determine where member states and the UN should target their capacity building.</p>
