We encourage Egypt to show maximum flexibility on opening the crossing.</p><p>We have frequent discussions with the Government of Israel about the need to ease restrictions on Gaza. Easing restrictions would alleviate the suffering of ordinary Palestinians, advance construction and allow the Gazan economy to grow. A durable agreement is necessary to safeguard Egypt and Israel's security; this would include Hamas and other militant groups permanently ending rocket fire and other attacks.</p> more like this

Existing UN and EU sanctions against the DPRK are based on UN Security Council Resolutions that prohibit the development of the DPRK's nuclear and ballistic missile programmes. Both EU and UN sanctions target goods and activities that support those programmes, and individuals and organisations who have acted in breach of these Resolutions.</p><p>We believe these sanctions have played a role in slowing down the progress of the DPRK's nuclear and missile programmes.
