star this property answer text <p>The UK Government is deeply concerned by the conflict in South Sudan, which has caused 2 million people to flee to neighbouring countries, including Sudan. The UK Government does not provide any direct funding to the Government of Sudan. However, through the Department for International Development (DFID)’s South Sudanese Refugees and Migration programme, the UK is providing up to £5 million of support this year to meet the essential humanitarian needs of up to 150,000 South Sudanese refugees in Sudan. DFID is also the largest donor to the UN’s Sudan Humanitarian Fund, which provides support to South Sudanese refugees and other vulnerable people in Sudan. We regularly discuss the conflict with the Government of Sudan, and welcome the opening of three humanitarian corridors by the Government, which has allowed aid to be delivered to the most affected populations.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​We are aware of the Private Member's Bill proposed by the PAS party to the Malaysian Parliament to expand the jurisdiction of Sharia courts in Malaysia to allow Islamic punishments (hudud). We have a regular dialogue on human rights with the Malaysian government, including at Ministerial level. Former Minister for Asia and the Pacific, Alok Sharma MP, discussed a number of issues, including human rights, with Malaysian Ministers during his visit to Kuala Lumpur in April 2017. Officials from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London meet periodically with representatives of Malaysian Civil Society to hear their concerns. We will continue to monitor human rights issues and internal developments in Malaysia, working with the EU and other foreign missions in Kuala Lumpur, raising our concerns as appropriate.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government of Yemen and the Saudi Arabian-led Coalition have made military gains in recent weeks against the Houthis and forces loyal to former President Saleh. We hope this will help build a base for the future return of the legitimate Yemeni Government. A political solution is the best way to achieve long-term stability in Yemen, and we remain fully and actively supportive of the UN’s efforts to bring an end to the conflict and resumption of an inclusive political process. The humanitarian situation remains dire, with 80 per cent of the population in need of assistance. The Department for International Development has allocated £55 million, through UN agencies and humanitarian Non-Governmental Organisations, to support Yemenis affected by the crisis. The risk of terrorist groups, such as al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and ISIL-Yemen, exploiting the instability is also a major concern. We continue to work with regional and international partners to tackle the threat.</p> more like this

In September 2013 the Government published an National Action Plan entitled “Good Business” setting out how we would implement the UN Guiding Principles and what action we would take to support the principles internationally including by encouraging other states to follow the principles and to publish their own national action plans where possible. The Government has provided financial support to the UN Working Group on the issue of human rights and transnational corporations and other business enterprises in their role to promote uptake of the Guiding Principles and develop guidance and best practice world-wide including for use in Malawi.</p> more like this
