star this property answer text While the Foreign Secretary has not recently discussed this specific issue with his Israeli counterpart, our Embassy in Tel Aviv and our Consulate-General in Jerusalem frequently urge both the Israeli and Palestinian authorities to take steps to improve conditions in Gaza. Every Israeli and Palestinian has the right to live in peace and security. We strongly condemn the recent attempted assassination of Prime Minister Hamdallah on 13 March, for which there is no justification. The UK continues to support the return of the legitimate Palestinian Authority to Gaza. We urge non-violence, dialogue and progress towards a sustainable Hamas-Fatah reconciliation and an improvement in the humanitarian situation in Gaza. more like this

star this property answer text <p>​We strongly agree with the statement by the UN Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Iraq that all Iraq's communities have a role in rebuilding their country. Inclusive, representative governance is critical to winning the peace in Iraq and ensuring that all Iraq's communities can enjoy a more secure, stable and prosperous future.</p><p>The UK is at the forefront of global efforts to bring Daesh to justice, including for their crimes against minorities. On 21 September 2017, the United Nations Security Council voted unanimously to adopt Resolution 2379 which establishes an Investigative Team to gather evidence of Daesh crimes, beginning in Iraq. The UK has committed £1m to the establishment of this team.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​We have not seen any verifiable evidence of breaches of international humanitarian law. Any such allegations should be thoroughly investigated by the appropriate bodies. The Turkish Government has assured the Foreign and Commonwealth Office that it is working to minimise civilian casualties. Turkish forces are trained in the Law of Armed Conflict and International Humanitarian Law, and we have discussed with Turkey the importance of pressing all actors in the Syrian conflict to comply fully with international conventions and norms. Alistair Burt, Minister for the Middle East reinforced these messages during his visit to Turkey on 21-23 March.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​UK arms exports are subject to export controls. All decisions to approve export licences are considered on a case-by-case basis against the Consolidated EU and National Arms Export Licensing Criteria (Consolidated Criteria). Decisions are based on the most up-to-date information and analysis available, including reports from our overseas network and military contacts. The Consolidated Criteria provide a thorough risk assessment framework and require us to consider the impact of providing equipment and its capabilities. We do not issue export licences where, for example, we assess there is a clear risk that the goods might be used for internal repression or used aggressively against another country. We cannot categorically state that UK weapons are not in use in Turkish military operations in Afrin, but all decisions to approve export licenses will have been taken based on the Consolidated Criteria and according to the latest information available at that time. We keep our approach to all countries under continual review.</p>
