unstar this property answer text <p>While we condemn the violent behaviour of some protestors, and unlawful acts such as arson and looting, we are deeply concerned that Zimbabwe’s security forces have acted disproportionately in response. In particular, there are disturbing reports of use of live ammunition, intimidation and excessive force. On 17 January I summoned the Zimbabwean Ambassador to highlight our concern at the ongoing situation in Zimbabwe.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>We continue to advocate actively for the inclusion of women in the Yemeni peace process and encourage political actors to take women’s views into account. Through the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) we support projects with UN Women which aim to increase Yemeni women’s capacity to influence political/conflict actors and the peace process, including through the Yemeni Women Pact. CSSF projects also support the inclusion of women in Track II political dialogue, and in local peacebuilding initiatives. During last month’s peace talks in Stockholm, UN Special Envoy Martin Griffiths invited eight women, representing different political parties, civil society, activists and development workers in Yemen, to assist him during negotiations. Our Embassy also used our social media accounts in the run up to Stockholm to encourage the parties to include women in their delegations.</p><p>​</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Since it came into effect in Hodeidah on 18 December, the fragile ceasefire has continued to hold and there has been a general de-escalation by both sides around the city. We are aware of reports of frontline incidents and skirmishing but these remain low. We urge all parties to support and facilitate the UN’s efforts and to implement the redeployment of forces in Hodeidah as agreed during the Stockholm talks. We welcome the arrival of General Patrick Cammaert, Head of the UN Redeployment Coordination Committee, and welcome the UK-drafted UN Security Council Resolution 2452 establishing a six month UN mission to monitor the Hodeidah ceasefire.</p><p>​</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government continues to be concerned about the situation in Mali. We reiterate our previous calls on the Government of Mali and the Plateforme and Coordination of Movements of Azawad (CMA) to redouble their efforts and take the additional steps needed for the immediate and full implementation of the 2015 Algiers Peace Agreement. We welcome recent efforts to accelerate disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration (DDR) efforts but underline the need for these efforts to accompanied by concurrent political and institutional reform, as well as initiatives to promote the development of northern Mali to improve the lives of ordinary people.</p><p>We are deeply concerned by the large numbers of civilians that continue to be affected by terrorist attacks and intercommunal clashes, particularly in the centre of Mali. We unequivocally condemn recent attacks against security personnel and express our condolences to all those who have been affected by violence. We have made clear that the security situation should be addressed through a comprehensive approach to address underlying grievances and avoid further deterioration. We encourage the Government of Mali to work with all partners to help reduce violent conflict.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>​In partnership with USAID and the Swiss Development Cooperation, the Department for International Development supported a total of 4542 domestic observers deployed during the Bangladesh Election. The EU sent a two person Election Expert Mission. The Government of Bangladesh refused permission for deployment of 9300 observers from 15 NGOs. On 1 January I released a statement expressing my concern about the conduct of the Bangladesh general election. There have been numerous credible allegations of irregularities, blocks on proper observation and the intimidation of voters. I repeated my concerns regarding the election to the Bangladesh High Commissioner when we met on 10 January. I have urged the Government of Bangladesh to carry out a full, credible and transparent resolution of all complaints related to the conduct of the elections.</p> more like this
