Officials have also met Chief of Defence Staff General Chiwenga.</p><p>These dramatic political events were clearly triggered by a military intervention. But the most important thing now is that Zimbabweans are able to exercise their constitutional right to elect a civilian government. This can only happen through free and fair elections. A re-establishment of a civilian-led government with a clear separation between the party and the state must be a priority. The UK has made this clear to the Government of Zimbabwe.</p><p> </p> more like this

Reports estimate that there have been over 1,170 incidents of economic suppression against Iranian Baha'is since 2005.

star this property answer text <p>The treatment of the Baha'i community in Iran is of particular concern. This includes recent reports of an increased number of Baha'i students being expelled from university, as well as the denial of access to higher education for adherents of the Baha'i faith, and reports of students being forced to renounce their faith in order to further their education. The British Government supports the UN Special Rapporteur's assessment that discrimination against the Baha'i community in Iran is aggravated by lack of recognition for the Baha'i faith in the Iranian constitution. We call on Iran to respect the rights and freedoms of all its citizens no matter what their religion or belief.</p> more like this

UN Security Council Resolution 2334 addresses settlements while also calling for an end to incitement and terror. The resolution was passed on 23 December and asks the Secretary-General to report to the Council every three months on the implementation of its provisions.

We will continue to support all efforts to reduce the level of violence in Syria, and use all diplomatic tools to work for a political solution which allows Syrians to decide their own future. The UK has played a leading role in the UN Security Council, supporting resolutions aimed at improving humanitarian access, civilian protection and investigating chemical weapons attacks.</p><p>We will continue to pursue accountability in Syria, including through support for robust EU sanctions against the Asad regime. With UK support, the EU now has sanctions in place against 240 persons and 67 entities linked to the violent repression of civilians in Syria. The UK will maintain support for the UN Commission of Inquiry which is reporting on human rights violations and abuses; and the International Impartial and Independent Mechanism (IIIM) whose role is to investigate and collect evidence of crimes committed in Syria. The UK is contributing to the start-up costs of the IIIM.</p><p>The UK continues to play a leading role in the fight against Daesh, which has been guilty of so many atrocities against civilians. We and the Coalition against Daesh take all allegations of civilian casualties seriously and ensure they are subsequently investigated. All possible precautions are taken to minimise the risk of civilian casualties when conducting any form of military operation. Through our rigorous targeting processes we will continue to seek to minimise the risk of civilian casualties.</p>
