star this property answer text <p>Ahead of the Foreign Secretary’s visit to Tehran in November 2018, a request was made for a meeting with Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe. Iran continues to deny consular access, as it does not recognise dual nationality. Nonetheless, we continue to request it. During our visits to Tehran, the Foreign Secretary and I underlined our deep concern about the treatment of Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe and other British-Iranian dual nationals detained in Iran, and reiterated our request for their release.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>It is difficult to assess the number of deaths resulting from the conflict in Yemen due to our lack of access and presence on the ground. We welcome the efforts of the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data project and others to estimate the impact of the conflict, recognising that sadly the true fatality figures are likely to be higher. We maintain that a political settlement is the only way to bring long-term stability to Yemen and to address the worsening humanitarian crisis. All parties must engage constructively and in good faith to overcome obstacles and find a political solution to end the conflict.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The British Government has regular discussions with international counterparts about the situation in Gaza. Whilst Palestinians have the right to peaceful protest, we have been clear that Hamas exploited the border protests for their own benefit. Their incitement of violence is unacceptable. When I visited Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories in May, I pressed the importance of Israel, the Palestinian Authority and international partners working together to ensure a durable solution for Gaza.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We regularly discuss Gaza with international counterparts, and in the UN Security Council. Our position on Hamas has not changed: Hamas must renounce violence, recognise Israel and accept previously signed agreements. We call on those in the region with influence over Hamas to encourage Hamas to take these steps. Hamas’s ongoing decision to embrace violence and reject the Quartet Principles lies at the heart of the Gazan tragedy. We need a durable agreement that addresses the underlying causes of the conflict and transforms the situation in Gaza.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We remain deeply concerned by Hamas's attempts to re-arm and rebuild militant infrastructure, including the tunnel network, in Gaza. Such actions undermine efforts to improve the situation in Gaza and harm the prospects for peace. During my visit to Israel at the end of May, I witnessed first-hand the impact of Hamas tunnels and rockets on the Israeli communities close to Gaza.</p> more like this
