answer text <p>​The British Government has an active programme of engagement with our international partners outside the EU on a range of issues, including EU exit, where we keep countries updated on a regular basis at key moments in the negotiations. As the Prime Minister has said, the UK is leaving the European Union not Europe. The draft Withdrawal Agreement and outline Political Declaration provide the basis for what will be the closest relationship between the EU and any third country and signals the ambition of both sides to embark on a new, deep and special partnership after the UK leaves the EU, as well as strengthened relationships with other countries further afield.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Since June 2016, the British Government has engaged constructively with our European partners to address the practical implications for Gibraltar arising from EU exit, including for the more than 8,000 Spanish frontier workers crossing into Gibraltar daily. As the Prime Minister reiterated in the House of Commons on 21 November, the UK has fully involved the Government of Gibraltar throughout. Our commitment to Gibraltar’s sovereignty, its people and its economy remains absolute, including in any discussions regarding the future.</p><p>​</p> more like this

answer text <p>The UK continues to fully support Ukraine's independence and territorial integrity. Crimea and the Donbas are part of Ukraine – what Russia has done and continues to do there breaches its obligations under international law.</p><p>Together with partners, we continue to call on Russia to abide by its international commitments and withdraw its forces from all of Ukraine, including the Donbas and Crimea. We strongly condemn recent Russian aggression against Ukrainian vessels near the Kerch Strait. This is yet further evidence of Russia's continued violation of Ukrainian sovereignty following the illegal annexation of Crimea and construction of the Kerch Bridge.</p><p>The Foreign Secretary issued a statement on 26 November, and spoke with the Ukrainian Foreign Minister on 29 November to reiterate that the UK stands with Ukraine against Russian aggression. The UK also spoke in support of the independence and sovereignty of Ukraine at emergency sessions in the UN Security Council, NATO, EU and OSCE.</p><p>The UK is also providing over £35 million to support Ukraine in a range of areas including governance reform, anti-corruption and humanitarian aid to help Ukraine continue its transition to become a stable, transparent and prosperous state.</p>

answer text <p>​The UK remains deeply concerned about human rights protections in Nicaragua and continues to support the work of the UN and OAS. The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) statement of 6 December denounced the establishment of a police state in Nicaragua, characterised by daily violations of human rights, suppression of fundamental freedoms, constant climate of fear and intimidation against human rights defenders and lack of due process and access to justice. On 22 November, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) reported 586 political prisoners, and we are alarmed by reports of ill-treatment of these prisoners. The UK supports the call from the OHCHR for the authorities to immediately end repression of those who speak out against the Government and we call on the Nicaraguan Government to safeguard the life, physical integrity and health of the people in their custody.</p> more like this

In 2017, in response to the request of the Inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the death of Dag Hammarskjold, the Government undertook further searches of its archives in order to identify additional information of potential interest to the Inquiry. Additional information was passed to the Inquiry in June 2017. The Government is satisfied that it holds no further information of direct relevance to the Inquiry.</p> more like this

answer text <p>2018 saw an 80 percent reduction, comapred to 2014 in the number of migrants crossing the central Mediterranean from North Africa to Italy – from 119,000 in 2017 to 23,000 in 2018, according to UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) figures. The number of fatalities on the central route has not reduced by the same rate. According to UNHCR the proportion of dead and missing compared to the number of arrivals doubled in 2018 to 5.6 percent from 2.4 percent in 2017. The largest proportion of migrants crossing the Mediterranean from North Africa during 2018 continued to be from Libya, although the proportion crossing from Tunisia increased during 2018. The European Commission reports the Italian Ministry of Interior as stating that 56 percent of migrants heading for Italy departed from Libya.</p> more like this
