star this property answer text <p>The conflict in Yemen has allowed terrorist organisations like Al-Qaeda and Daesh to establish themselves and spread their message of violence and extremism. They continue to pose a threat to Yemen, the region and beyond. As the UK no longer maintains a presence on the ground in Yemen, we are working with partners to monitor the threat from these organisations and disrupt any attack planning. In the longer term, an enduring political settlement, strong security institutions and effective governance will be needed to deny terrorist organisations the space in which to operate.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Saudi-led Coalition continues to seek to reinstate the legitimate government in Yemen and defend its own southern border against artillery and missile strikes by Houthi forces and those allied to former President Saleh. The conflict sees skirmishes and sporadic fighting in a number of areas in western Yemen, including along the Saudi border, around Midi, north east of Sana'a and in the vicinity of Sirwah. We remain concerned by the ability of terrorist organisations such as Al Qaeda and Daesh to exploit ungoverned spaces in Yemen. The conflict has also resulted in security threats to international shipping in the Bab-el-Mandeb. Reinstating peace talks remains the top priority: a political solution is the best way to bring stability to Yemen and address the worsening humanitarian crisis. The UK continues to play a leading role in international efforts to achieve this goal. The Yemeni parties must engage constructively and in good faith to find a political solution to end the conflict.</p>

Due to the high number of such cases, we do not intervene as a general rule in cases regarding non-British nationals, with few exceptions such as in certain circumstances of extreme humanitarian need.</p><p>The Foreign and Commonwealth Office regularly raises the issue of delay and refusal of exit permits with counterparts in the Israeli government. We have lobbied at the highest levels on easing restrictions on movement, including the Foreign Secretary to Prime Minister Netanyahu in August 2017. We are also concerned about the closure of the Rafah crossing and strongly encourage Egypt to show maximum flexibility on opening the crossing.</p> more like this

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) continues to report Iran's compliance with its commitments under the JCPOA, most recently on 31 August. The Prime Minister and Foreign Secretary have spoken to their US counterparts, making clear that the deal is working and is a UK priority. They have also spoken regularly with their French and German counterparts on this issue. Given President Trump's announcement of 13 October that he will not recertify Iran's compliance with the deal, we are looking at the detail of US proposals and engaging with counterparts in the US, Europe and Iran to examine the implications as we work to preserve the JCPOA.</p> more like this
