We reiterate our previous calls on the parties to the 2015 Algiers Peace Agreement to take immediate steps to advance the peace process. We are also deeply concerned by the increase in terrorist and intercommunal attacks in the centre of Mali.

star this property answer text <p>​UK assistance is making a significant contribution to supporting Somaliland’s ongoing democratisation process, including through: improving the accountability of the judiciary and public security structures; strengthening the technical capability of the National Electoral Commission; and building understanding between government and journalists through support to a new media law. Nevertheless, there remain significant challenges on which we are engaging with the Government of Somaliland, for example, on the continued political marginalisation of women and minority clans, and the ongoing arbitrary detention of journalists. We also remain concerned by the lack of progress in the preparations for 2019 parliamentary and local elections, including the passage of electoral legislation in Parliament, and have called on all three political parties to demonstrate their commitment to democratisation and make the necessary compromises to move the process forwards substantively and ensure elections take place on time ‪on 12 December 2019.</p>

star this property answer text <p>​The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) strongly encourages all British people travelling abroad to take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance before they travel, regardless of their destination. We do not maintain an exhaustive list of countries where evidence of travel insurance cover may be required as a condition of entry, as a range of evidence can be requested as part of individual visa applications. British people travelling abroad can check the relevant FCO travel advice country page for information and advice on entry requirements for their destination country, and should contact the embassy of the country they are visiting if they need further guidance about their eligibility to enter. Responsibility for determining eligibility for entry rests with the immigration authorities in the country concerned.</p> more like this

EAM are only activated when a terrorist attack has occurred, and then only in exceptional circumstances, and on a case-by case basis. EAM does not replace the need for comprehensive travel insurance which will also cover costs such as repatriation.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​Last year the UK attended the Somalia Partnership Forum where the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) strengthened its commitment to support the protection of human rights. Progress in implementing these commitments, in particular an independent National Human Rights Commission, forms a regular part of our dialogue with the FGS. The UK also provides a range of assistance that directly support human rights in Somalia such as working with Somali Security Forces to help provide protection for all civilians in accordance with international human rights standards.</p><p>Ultimately, a stable and inclusive political settlement is the most important aspect to ensure that Somalia is able to protect human rights for all its citizens, and to end impunity for perpetrators of abuse. This is why the UK is playing a leading role in supporting Somalia in working towards an inclusive constitution and to deliver one-person one-vote elections in 2021.</p> more like this
