The UK abides by its commitments under international law and expects all countries to comply with their international legal obligations. Our High Commission in Delhi is monitoring the situation closely and we have updated our travel advice. As the Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my Hon. Friend the Member for Reading West (Alok Sharma) said in the House of Commons on 18 October, the UK's long-standing position, held by successive Governments, is that it is for India and Pakistan to find a lasting resolution to the situation, taking into account the wishes of the Kashmiri people. It is not for the UK to prescribe a solution or act as mediator. more like this

star this property answer text <p>​Sudan remains a Human Rights Priority Country for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, as outlined in the FCO's last annual Human Rights and Democracy Report published in July 2016. We regularly raise our human rights concerns directly with the government of Sudan in London, Khartoum and New York as part of our ongoing dialogue. Most recently, human rights issues were a key theme of the Strategic Dialogue that took place in London in on 10/11 October.</p><p>We consider our response to all reports of human rights violations carefully, in consultation with our EU and troika partners and with human rights organisations on the ground, and respond in the way we judge to be the most effective in conveying our concerns to the government of Sudan. We also support the established UN mechanisms in their efforts to improve the situation in Sudan.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We condemn violations of human rights by all parties in Syria. We are very concerned about reports of high civilian casualties in west Aleppo resulting from an Opposition offensive. It is essential that all parties to the conflict comply with international humanitarian law and minimise civilian casualties. We are absolutely clear, however, that it is the relentless airstrikes and barbaric attacks by the regime and its backers which are fuelling this violence, prolonging the conflict, deepening civilian suffering, and driving terrorism. The UN-Mandated Joint Investigative Mechanism has now concluded that the Asad regime has used chemical weapons against the Syrian people on at least three occasions and Daesh on one.</p><p>It is for a competent court to decide when a war crime has been committed. The UK co-sponsored a UN Security Council resolution in 2014 to refer all those who are alleged to be responsible for war-crimes and crimes against humanity in Syria, regardless of affiliation, to the International Criminal Court. Russia and China chose to veto this resolution. Russia has used its veto at the Security Council five times in recent years on resolutions about Syria.</p><p>We discuss the situation in Syria regularly with international counterparts, including alleged atrocities being committed in Syria. We raised our concerns in the UN Human Rights Council's Special Session on Aleppo which was held at the UK's request on 21 October and which passed a resolution mandating the UN Commission of Inquiry to investigate the bombing of the humanitarian aid convoy on 19 September. We consistently use our interventions at the UN Security Council to highlight the suffering of the Syrian people and to urge an end to the violence and the indiscriminate bombing of civilians.</p><p>We continue to support the UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria, which is mandated by the Human Rights Council to investigate all alleged violations of international human rights law and humanitarian law in Syria. We also fund non-governmental organisations to gather evidence on violations with a view to ensuring perpetrators are one day held to account.</p>
