star this property answer text <p>We believe the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA) remains the best way of preventing a nuclear-armed Iran and we are determined to see it maintained for as long as Iran complies with it. The deal is a critical agreement that makes the world a safer place and it is working; Iran remains constrained by the strict nuclear limits in the deal and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) retains unprecedented access to monitor and verify Iran's activities. IAEA reports continue to confirm that Iran is adhering to the nuclear limits in the JCPoA.</p><p>As set out in my Written Ministerial Statement to Parliament on Monday 5 November, we have been clear with the US about our determination to preserve the JCPoA, and the fact that this is driven by our national security interests. The UK is working with France and Germany on a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) to enable continued sanctions relief to reach Iran, and to allow for European exporters and importers to trade in compliance with EU and UN sanctions.</p><p>In parallel to our work with partners to maintain the JCPoA, we continue to take steps with our partners against the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps destabilising behaviour across the region and to hold Iran to account on human rights, including its treatment of British-Iranians detained in Iran.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The British Government remains deeply concerned about the security situation in Libya and strongly condemns any threats or use of force which endanger civilian life or undermine the UN-led political process. We appreciate the recent efforts of UN Special Representative Ghassan Salamé to establish a ceasefire in Tripoli, and are supportive of the creation of the Security Arrangements Committee, which aims to develop more sustainable security arrangements in the capital.</p><p>On 12-13 November I represented the United Kingdom at the Palermo conference on Libya hosted by the Italian Prime Minister. The conference demonstrated broad support for Ghassan Salamé’s recalibrated action plan to achieve progress on the political, security and economic tracks in Libya. In particular, Ghassan Salamé intends to convene a broad-based Libyan National Conference in Libya in early 2019, in order to work out a way forward with all Libya's stakeholders and pave the way to elections. The UK is clear that there can be no military solution to the conflict in Libya. The only way of achieving security and stability is through an inclusive political settlement. In addition, the UK has allocated £12 million through the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) this year to boost political participation and economic development, and to support the delivery of greater security, stability and resilience, including through tackling extremism.</p>

The ceasefire in Idlib, agreed by Turkey and Russia on 17 September, is holding but fragile with some increase in violence in recent weeks. The Global Coalition against Daesh, of which the UK is a leading member, continues to support efforts to defeat Daesh in the north-east of the country. We advise against all travel to Syria.</p> more like this

Normalising relations between Serbia and Kosovo is crucial for the security, stability and prosperity of both countries and the wider region. We support the EU-facilitated Dialogue between Serbia and Kosovo with a view to a comprehensive and sustainable solution that enjoys popular support in both countries. The Minister for Europe and the Americas set out this position in his recent meetings in Belgrade with Serbia's Prime Minister Brnabic and Foreign Minister Dacic, and with Kosovo's President Thaci during his visit to London in December last year.</p> more like this

However, we are acutely aware of the fragility of these agreements at this stage.

The UK-proposed UN Security Council Resolution 2451, endorsing the outcomes of the Stockholm talks, including the ongoing ceasefire in Hodeidah, and authorising the UN to monitor implementation, was unanimously adopted on 21 December 2018.</p> more like this

These efforts must be Iraqi-owned and Iraqi-led, with sustained international support.</p><p>Since 2015, the UK has committed over £30m to help stabilise areas liberated from Daesh, including rehabilitating critical infrastructure, delivering basic services like water and electricity, rebuilding livelihoods and supporting community reconciliation. This includes £14.45 million to the UN's Funding Facility for Stabilisation, to help the Iraqi government stabilise areas of return and re-establish security, basic services and inclusive local governance.</p><p>Stabilisation is not just about restoring physical infrastructure, but also about rebuilding trust. Community reconciliation is vital if Iraq is to enjoy a stable and prosperous future. Through our Conflict, Stability and Security Fund and our diplomatic efforts, we are also supporting the development of inclusive and representative reconciliation processes at both national and community levels.</p>
