star this property 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

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

star this property 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

star this property answer text <p>As I stated in my Chatham House speech on 25 October, we are extremely concerned at the Venezuelan government's continued attacks on opposition politicians, a number of whom have been imprisoned, exiled or stripped of their political rights. The illegal detention of National Assembly MP Juan Requesens and the death of Fernando Alban whilst detained by the Venezuelan Intelligence Service are both particularly disturbing.</p><p>In October, our Ambassador met the Venezuelan Foreign Minister, Jorge Arreaza, and the Vice-Minister for Europe, Yvan Gil, and expressed our concerns. In London, the Head, Latin America Department, FCO, called in the Venezuelan Ambassador to express our concern about Mr Requessens and to urge the Venezuelan government to release all political prisoners.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK has always strongly supported the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty and the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO). Our goal is to see this Treaty enter into force and bring an end to nuclear weapon test explosions or any other nuclear explosion. We used the Preparatory Committee to continue conversations on how to continue to best support the CTBTO. We continue to press for ratification by those countries who will bring the Treaty into force (Annex II countries). We continue to support the CTBTO's verification system, which is a unique and immensely important international asset. We have supported the 2019 Budget Update but have also called on all States Signatories in arrears of their assessed contributions to make payments to reduce their arrears as a matter of urgency. We continue to participate in and support both of the CTBTO's working groups.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The United Kingdom’s priorities for both the Conference of States Parties and Review Conference are to continue working with states around the world to support progress towards universal and full national implementation of the Convention and to uphold the ban on chemical weapons development, production, stockpiling and use. The UK will focus on strengthening implementation of the Convention including through effective implementation of the Decision taken at the June 2018 special Conference of States Parties on which the former Foreign Secretary updated the House on 9 July (<em>Official Report</em>, House of Commons, volume 644, column 29WS), and securing a budget for 2019 to allow the critical work of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to continue unimpeded.</p><p>The fact that I plan to represent the UK at the Review Conference, and my noble friend the Deputy Leader of the House of Lords and Minister of State for Defence also plans to attend the Conference of States Parties, indicates the importance the United Kingdom attaches to the Convention and the significant role it plays in the rules-based international system.</p><p>​</p>
