star this property answer text Discussions on transparency and corruption have formed part of our bilateral dialogue with the Republic of Korea. The Kim Young Ran Law, introduced earlier this year in South Korea and aimed at curbing excesses of hospitality and gift-giving, used the UK’s Bribery Act as a reference. This followed collaboration between the UK and the Korean authorities, including Korea’s Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission (ACRC). Future plans include the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Serious Fraud Office and Korea’s Supreme Prosecutor’s Office on enhancing cooperation. Projects aimed at helping businesses and media stakeholders in Korea tackle corruption are also using British anti-corruption standards as guidance. more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government has regular discussions with our key international partners on the situation in Syria. Most recently on 10 December the Foreign Secretary met his counterparts from like-minded countries on Syria in Paris. In these discussions many possible tactics and longer-terms solutions have been considered, including different ways of supporting the Syrian opposition. The opposition continues to hold territory in several areas of the country including the north around Idlib and the south around Dera’a. With support from Turkey, the opposition has made welcome progress in taking territory from Daesh in Northern Syria, clearing Daesh from the Turkish border. The UK will remain a strong supporter of the moderate opposition in Syria.</p> more like this
