star this property answer text <p>The Government understands the hardship that lack of pension payments causes to former service-people and their families. The British Ambassador to Zimbabwe raises pensions frequently with the Zimbabwean Government and has secured written confirmation that it will resume payments when the economic situation improves. However, we have not made an estimate of the cost as these payments are the responsibility of the Government of Zimbabwe as set out in the Lancaster House Agreement in 1979.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Regional groupings of the States Parties to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) designate candidates for the Chairmanship and four Vice-Chair positions, which are traditionally adopted by consensus within the Executive Council in accordance with established OPCW rules and practice. On this occasion, Sudan was the Africa Group’s chosen representative. Given that we understand that more information would be required for the OPCW to investigate further the allegations against Sudan and that the role of Vice-Chair does not have authority over any action by the OPCW to look into allegations of use, we did not object to the Africa Group’s nominee. This is a separate issue to the International Criminal Court (ICC) indictment of President Bashir. The UK remains a strong supporter of the ICC and we continue to make clear that we expect compliance with the arrest warrants for all those indicted.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We and other states encouraged the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to look into the serious allegations made by Amnesty International. The OPCW asked the Government of Sudan, as a State Party to the Chemical Weapons Convention, to share all relevant information, and offered its assistance in any investigation. The Sudanese authorities have since reported to the OPCW that their national investigations have found no evidence of chemical weapon use in the Jebel Marra region. We have had discussions with Amnesty representatives following their report and encouraged them to engage with the OPCW directly. We continue to press the government of Sudan to allow the AU/UN Peacekeeping Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) unrestricted humanitarian access to all parts of Darfur.</p> more like this
