answer text <p>The UK position on this matter is long-standing and well-known to the US Administration. We believe it diminishes the prospect for positive change in Cuba and we consider it to be counter-productive and damaging, including to UK interests. It is right that the UK has again voted in support of the Cuban resolution at this year's UN General Assembly on 1 November.</p> more like this

answer text <p>​We have made clear our concern to Turkey regarding incidents of cross-border firing into areas of Syria under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces. We continue to engage closely with Turkey and other allies, including the US and EU partners, to achieve an outcome in northern Syria which respects Turkish security concerns while allowing for the successful completion of the counter-Daesh campaign.</p> more like this

answer text <p>​The Foreign Secretary has had no discussions to date with the President-elect of Brazil. The Prime Minister wrote to President-elect Jair Bolsonaro following his election. Our Ambassador to Brazil met him during the campaign, as he did the other candidates, and since the election has met members of his transition team.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The UK operates one of the most robust export licensing systems in the world. It considers whether the goods might be used in a way which is inconsistent with the Consolidated EU &amp; National Arms Export Licensing Criteria. We also retain powers to revoke licences, once issued, if circumstances or information available to us change. End user certificates are considered as part of the process already.</p><p>We believe that our existing system is robust and delivers a high level of assurance. The Government is always looking to see how it can improve its export controls and we are in contact with countries who carry out some limited end use checks to see if there is anything we can learn from their experience.</p><p>​</p><p>​</p> more like this
