unstar this property answer text <p>The UK is actively working with our partners, including the Friends of Syria Core Group (‘London 11') and the UN in bringing about a sustainable solution to the crisis in Syria through a negotiated political transition by mutual consent - this is the principle in the Geneva Communiqué agreed by the UN, the League of Arab States and the UN Security Council.</p><p>The UK is also at the forefront of the international response to the humanitarian crisis in Syria. Our total humanitarian funding for Syria and the region is now £600 million and we are leading efforts in the UN Security Council in pressing for a stronger Resolution that would give the UN's humanitarian agencies the authority they have been asking for to deliver help to millions of Syrians in urgent need of humanitarian aid.</p><p>The UK has also announced £5 million of humanitarian assistance in response to the situation in Iraq, where the situation is fast-moving and complex. There is a need for new international efforts and mechanisms to stem the flow of arms to extremist groups, cut off their finances and prevent them from exploiting the economic assets that they have seized. The UK will be making proposals for this work.</p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text The Government is deeply concerned about the destruction of churches and other holy sites in Iraq. This includes the destruction of the Mosque of the Prophet Younis, which housed the Tomb of Jonah, by the self-styled Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in July, and the destruction of the Green Church, which was thought to be the oldest church in the Middle East, by ISIL in September. We co-sponsored a resolution at the Human Rights Council in September, which highlighted and condemned the destruction of monuments, shrines, churches, mosques and other places of worship in Iraq and encouraged the Government of Iraq to protect these sites. The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my hon. Friend the Member for Bournemouth East (Mr Ellwood), condemned the destruction of religious sites in his statement of 30 July, which followed a meeting with representatives of the Iraqi Christian community. Officials from our Embassy in Baghdad and Foreign and Commonwealth Office officials in London have met a number of religious leaders to discuss the situation for religious groups in Iraq and have also met the Iraqi government to urge them to take appropriate steps to protect religious communities. We have also funded a series of grass roots meetings among religious leaders in Iraq to promote religious tolerance and freedom of religion or belief. We continue to encourage influential religious leaders in Iraq to speak out publicly and condemn sectarian violence.

unstar this property answer text <p>We, and our international partners, estimate that a significant portion of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL)’s revenue comes from its sale of oil; extortion is its other main source of funds. Degrading ISIL’s finances is a key part of our strategy for defeating ISIL, and tackling the threat it poses to the UK and UK interests abroad. We understand that Hamas currently relies on funding from allies across the region. This funding is directed at the political wing of the organisation.</p><p>Our partners in the Middle East, including the Gulf States, have made clear by their current actions that they are fully committed to taking action against ISIL and tackling other terrorist groups. We are aware of reports that individual citizens from the region may be providing support to ISIL, the military wing of Hamas and other extremist groups, but there is no evidence to suggest that the governments we engage with are involved. The Prime Minister, my right hon. Friend the Member for Witney (Mr Cameron), discusses these issues regularly with his counterparts, most recently during the visit of the Qatari Emir on 29 October where he agreed to increase cooperation on sharing information on groups of concern. The UK welcomes the recent Qatari legislation to prevent terrorist funding by regulating charities that are involved in politics or send money abroad; we encourage the swift implementation of this legislation.</p>
