star this property answer text <p>The sixth UK-Tunisia Bilateral Forum, which took place in London on 12 September, provided an opportunity to exchange views on bilateral and regional issues, and underlined both countries' desire to continue to collaborate closely. Both countries committed themselves to finalising a broad bilateral association agreement, which was signed on 4 October. This Agreement will provide a comprehensive framework for the growing trade between our countries and strengthen cooperation on political dialogue, democracy, education, trade, environment and human rights. The Joint Communique of the Forum, providing further details of its conclusions, has been published on gov.uk.</p><p>While no new measures relating to migration in Africa were agreed, we continue to work closely with Tunisia to address the issue of unmanaged migration from Africa to Europe and to help Tunisian authorities deal with this challenge.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>UK Ministers and our Embassy in Brasilia routinely engage with the Brazilian Government on many environmental issues, including deforestation. The Foreign Secretary spoke to the Brazilian Foreign Minister about the forest fires in the Amazon on 27 August, and the Minister of State for Europe and the Americas also discussed this issue with the Brazilian Ambassador at a meeting on 4 September. At the G7, the UK pledged a further £10 million towards the protection and restoration of Brazil's rainforests, including areas impacted by the recent fires.</p><p>We are also concerned about the fires in Indonesia's forests and peatlands. They are causing extensive damage at both local and regional level, and contributing to global carbon emissions. The British government is engaged with authorities in Indonesia, through our Embassy in Jakarta, to find long term solutions on fire prevention. We are also looking at peatland protection and restoration on Sumatra and Kalimantan, the regions where most fires occur.</p>

Israeli restrictions severely restrict the movement of medical professionals, patients and families from Gaza, hampering the provision of quality health services, as well as impacting Palestinians in the West Bank. The situation in Gaza is particularly acute, and is compounded by frequent closure by Egypt of the Rafah crossing, preventing urgent medical cases from seeking treatment in Egypt. A lasting resolution to the situation is needed that will ensure that all those who are in need of medical attention and their families have unimpeded access to healthcare provisions.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK remains gravely concerned about the economic and humanitarian situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPTs). Our Government officials regularly propose measures to improve the situation in the OPTs with Government of Israel officials. These include the adoption of a more transparent process for allowing goods into Gaza and permitting greater exports from the strip. The UK is supporting direct measures to support job creation in Gaza. We will more than double the amount of UK aid spent on economic development in the OPTs to around £38 million over the next five years (2018-2023). We have also repeatedly raised with the Government of Israel our concerns about its decision to withhold tax revenues to the Palestinian Authority (PA). We expect economic and fiscal agreements between Israel and the PA to continue to be fully implemented, including Israel's obligations under the Oslo Accords and Paris Protocol.</p> more like this
