answer text <p>We are aware of reports about the recent arrests of journalists, activists and human rights defenders in Egypt. Egypt is a Foreign and Commonwealth Office Human Rights Priority Country and the UK regularly raises concerns about human rights with the Egyptian Government both in public and private. On 18 September we issued a statement at the UN Human Rights Council in which we raised specific concern about the 'arrests of activists, bloggers and journalists'. I also raised our human rights concerns with the Egyptian Foreign Minister during my visit to Cairo on 14 October. We are tracking the cases in question and welcome the release of Abdel Khalik Farouk and Ibrahim el-Khateib on 29 October pending investigation.</p> more like this

Our position on the status of Jerusalem is clear and long-standing: it should be determined in a negotiated settlement between the Israelis and the Palestinians, and Jerusalem should ultimately be the shared capital of the Israeli and Palestinian states.</p> more like this

answer text <p>All details of DFID programmes on peacebuilding and conflict prevention are published on the Development Tracker at <a href="https://devtracker.dfid.gov.uk/" target="_blank">https://devtracker.dfid.gov.uk/</a> in line with DFID’s transparency policy and commitments. This includes centrally managed funding to the UN Peacebuilding Fund and bilateral projects focused on specific countries, all of which can be searched using the relevant key words. Details are updated routinely once a month. Prior to this all new data is required to go through an approval stage before they are eligible for publication. From the date this approval is received it can take up to 2 months for that information to publish to the Development tracker. This is to enable the project team to ensure that the information that they have provided is correct prior to the monthly publication refresh.</p><p>Where funding from the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund is managed by DFID, programme summaries for all can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/conflict-stability-and-security-fund-programme-summaries#programme-summaries" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/conflict-stability-and-security-fund-programme-summaries#programme-summaries</a>.</p>
