While resolutions express the view of the General Assembly as a whole, those Member States which vote against or abstain on individual resolutions are not legally committed to implement their respective contents. Of the 313 resolutions adopted during the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly (2017-18), 234 were adopted by consensus (i.e. without a vote). Of the remaining 79 which were adopted by vote, the UK voted in favour of 44, against 25 and abstained on 10 occasions.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The EU's non-preferential import duty on sheep meat is 12.8 per cent, plus a fixed amount, on average, of €155.68 per 100kg, depending on the cut. Implementation of such terms may render this trade no longer profitable. However, the majority of Falkland meat exports go to the UK and the Government will maintain duty-free access to the UK market post-EU Exit for all goods originating in British Overseas Territories, which will ensure the Falkland Islands' meat industry remains viable. The EU does not levy tariffs on raw wool imports.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​The majority of the Falklands' fisheries exports consists of Loligo squid. The EU's non-preferential import duty on such squid stands at six per cent. A small proportion of the Falkland Islands' other fisheries exports may face duties of up to 18 per cent. Such tariffs could, according to the Falkland Islands' own calculations, result in reduced profits to the industry of between £6 million and £9 million, depending on whether or not the industry passed the cost of the tariff onto the consumer or absorbed the cost of the tariff.</p> more like this

We believe the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty has played a valuable role in supporting Euro-Atlantic security and want to see it continue to stand but that requires all parties to abide by it. While the Treaty remains in force, we will continue our efforts to bring Russia back into full and verified compliance. We will work closely with US and other Allies on next steps.</p> more like this
