star this property answer text <p>The UK is committed to supporting Cameroon and its neighbours in the fight against Boko Haram. We provided £5 million to support the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) a regional force against Boko Haram of which Cameroon is a member.</p><p>In our engagement in the region, including with President Biya, we regularly re-affirm our commitment to supporting Cameroon and its partners in defeating Boko Haram while also encouraging them to address the root causes of violent extremism. We worked with the Mayor of London's Strong Cities Initiative to send five Cameroonian mayors to participate in the first annual summit in Turkey in May 2016, to help share ideas among municipal authorities globally in efforts to counter violent extremism at the city level.</p><p>We are deeply concerned about the scale of the humanitarian crisis across the Lake Chad Basin. This will require a sustained, multi-year response to support communities devastated by the conflict. The UK has increased its humanitarian support to the region and will provide an additional £80 million of humanitarian aid to help provide support to some of the 10.7 million people across the Lake Chad Basin who are in urgent need due to the conflict. This is in addition to almost £90 million of humanitarian aid that we are already delivering in the region.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK decided to attend the Paris Conference only as an observer and, in that capacity, we did not sign up to the Communiqué. The UK welcomes France's efforts to promote peace but we repeatedly expressed reservations about holding a conference so close to the change of US administration, and without the attendance of the two main parties. The UK’s policy on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is unchanged. We remain committed to achieving a two-state solution as the only viable long term solution. We joined international partners in giving strong backing to the Quartet’s report in July 2016 and our position was reflected in our support for Security Council Resolution 2334 (2016) on 23 December.</p> more like this
