answer text <p>We strongly condemn Mr bin Haydara's death sentence and the continued persecution of Baha'is in Yemen for their religious beliefs. We continue to follow the treatment of the Baha’is in Yemen closely, including through meeting their representatives in the UK and lobbying the relevant authorities. We continue to call on the parties to the conflict to respect the human rights of all Yemenis.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Following the removal of President Bashir by the Sudanese military on 11 April there was a brief closure of Sudanese borders. The broader political events in Sudan will likely have an impact on the capacity of the Sudanese authorities to engage in a number of fora and mechanisms, including the Khartoum Process, however it is not yet clear what this impact will be. Tackling the root causes of irregular migration, combatting organised immigration crime and addressing the devastating effects of trafficking is a key UK priority. As a former Chair, the UK remains committed to playing our full part in the Khartoum Process; we are on the Steering Committee; the Khartoum Process is one of many ways the UK engages with East African partners to address these shared threats. We continue to monitor the situation.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Following the removal of President Bashir on 11 April, we continue to engage frequently with a broad range of Sudanese actors, including opposition groups, civil society and the Sudanese authorities, to call for a peaceful and swift transition to an inclusive government that is civilian led. This includes Sadiq al-Mahdi and the leadership of his Umma Party. Officials from British Embassy Khartoum last met with Sadiq al-Mahdi on 30 March to discuss the prospects for political reforms and wider internal politics in Sudan.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Former President Mbeki has chaired the African Union High-Level Implementation Panel (AUHIP) since its inception in 2009. Mandated to support implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), signed in 2005 in the wake of the Second Sudanese Civil War, the AUHIP supported the process that led to the independence of South Sudan and facilitated mediation efforts related to a number of Sudanese conflicts. The focus of the AUHIP will need to be considered in light of the removal of President Bashir by the Sudanese military on 11 April, but continued engagement by the African Union will be vital to supporting a transition to inclusive civilian rule in Sudan. While the AUHIP has been engaged constructively on some discreet areas of the broader regional conflict, the core South Sudan peace process has been led by the Intergovernmental Authority on Development, which delivered the Revitalised Agreement on the Conflict in South Sudan, signed on 12 September 2018. ​</p> more like this

answer text <p>We recognise the importance of Sudan's neighbours and the wider region at this important time and continue to engage with them and the wider international community to support any process that delivers credibly the demands of the people of Sudan. Our Troika statement of 9 April was clear that the UK and our Troika partners, Norway and the United States, will support a political transition in Sudan that credibly responds to protestor demands. We also welcome the statement of the African Union of 11 April expressing solidarity with the people of Sudan, a commitment to support them, and that this military take-over is not the appropriate response to the challenges facing Sudan.</p> more like this
