star this property answer text <p>The UK supports the East African Community-led dialogue to find a peaceful solution to the crisis in Burundi. We continue to urge the Burundi government to engage with the East African Community.</p><p>At the recent Human Rights Council session on 20 June 2017, the UK called on the Burundi Government to end the violence and collaborate with the UN Commission of Inquiry on Burundi to ensure that individuals responsible for human rights abuses in Burundi are held to account. Our non-resident Ambassador and officials regularly visit for consultations with the Burundi Government; these discussions cover human rights and the importance of maintaining the principles of the 2000 Arusha Agreement, including the protection of minority groups in Burundi. In addition, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office is implementing projects in Burundi focused on human rights, sexual and gender based violence and security.</p> more like this

We have a regular dialogue with both the Palestinian Authority and the Government of Israel in which we reiterate the need for both sides to prepare their populations for peaceful coexistence, including by promoting a more positive portrayal of each other, and avoiding incitement.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is not funding any non-governmental organisations (NGO) to carry out Search and Rescue in the Mediterranean. NGO activities are co-ordinated by the official Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre in Italy, and all NGOs should operate in accordance with international law. It is the organised criminal networks who are exploiting vulnerable migrants and profiting from these dangerous journeys across the sea. That is why our priority is to tackle these smugglers.</p> more like this

The UK already meets the Defence Investment Pledge target of spending more than 2% of GDP on Defence and welcomes the commitment of all Allies to include this in their national plans. The UK's significant contribution to NATO activities includes an enhanced Forward Presence in Estonia and capacity building work in Partner countries to build resilience against threats such as terrorism; the UK fully supports NATO's membership of the Global Coalition against Daesh.</p> more like this
