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>The UK continues to support all efforts to strengthen the ceasefire in Syria, enable humanitarian access and support a return to negotiations on a political settlement. Russia, Turkey and Iran - the guarantors of the 30 December ceasefire agreement – have proposed a trilateral mechanism to monitor the ceasefire. To be effective, such a mechanism will need to be genuinely independent and closely coordinated with the United Nations. The UK will continue to speak out, including at the regular meetings of the International Syria Support Group Ceasefire Task Force, should these basic elements of a ceasefire not be adhered to.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The root causes of the ongoing protests in Sudan are economic and political. There is no specific or separate religious dimension to them or to the Government of Sudan's response. More broadly, Sudan remains a Foreign and Commonwealth Office human rights priority country, including with regard to freedom of religion or belief; we engage with the Government of Sudan frequently to urge improvements in this area, most recently supporting an event in Khartoum with the Bishop of Leeds on 29 January to press for greater religious freedom for all Sudanese people.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>There are no current joint security programmes between the UK and Government of Sudan. The extent of UK funded defence engagement with the Government of Sudan is limited to the provision of a small scale education programme to the regular Sundanese armed forces that focuses on International Humanitarian Law, the Law of Armed Conflict and on Governance and Security Sector Reform. This is achieved through the teaching of English language and graduate-level lectures, using professionally qualified teachers, academics and lawyers.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Reports of the number of detainees, deaths and injuries vary. On 12 January the Government of Sudan reported that 24 deaths had occurred. Activist groups and Non-Governmental Organisations assess the number to be considerably higher. We are unable to verify these figures independently, but we continue to express our deep concern at the current situation, both bilaterally and as part of the Troika (with the USA and Norway). We are urging the Government of Sudan to respect the Sudanese people's right to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly, and to ensure those responsible for the deaths of protestors are held to account. We expect political activists, human rights defenders, journalists and others who are being detained without charge or trial to be released immediately, and for all detainees to be treated in accordance with international standards. We continue to monitor the situation closely.</p> more like this
