star this property answer text <p>On 6 February the British Consulate in Jerusalem joined EU heads of missions in issuing a statement expressing strong concerns about the demolition by the Israeli authorities of parts of the school of the Bedouin community of Abu Nuwar. Our Ambassador to Tel Aviv most recently discussed the issue of demolitions of Palestinian property with the Israeli authorities on 22 February. The Minister for the Middle East and North Africa also raised the issue of demolitions with the Ambassador on 27 February. Demolitions and evictions of Palestinians from their homes cause unnecessary suffering to ordinary Palestinians; call into question Israel’s commitment to a viable two-state solution; and, in all but the most exceptional cases, are contrary to International Humanitarian Law.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>At the 1999 Washington Summit, NATO Heads of State and Government decided to build a new NATO headquarters to meet the requirements of the Alliance in the twenty first century. In 2003, the North Atlantic Council approved a design for the new headquarters with an estimated cost of €1.2 billion. These costs have been revised on a number of occasions; the current estimate is €1.17 billion. Handover of the site was originally planned for August 2015 but was delayed until March 2017 due to technical difficulties. Allies will begin moving to the new headquarters in March 2018 with the site of the current buildings returning to the Belgian Government towards the end of this year.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​The British Government is increasingly concerned about the situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo and has repeatedly called on President Kabila to honour both the Constitution and the 31 December agreement. We are appalled by the violence used by the Democratic Republic of Congo forces against peaceful protestors. We have publicly condemned the excessive use of force on both 31 December 2017 and 21 January 2018. Although the British Government does not currently have plans to sanction the President of the Democratic Republic of Congo, we will work with regional and international partners to continue to press the DRC authorities to adhere to their electoral commitment, to open up political space, and to allow for peaceful assembly.</p> more like this

This includes the possibility of EU assistance in establishing a sea-link from Gaza to another international port, currently envisaged in Cyprus. The UK has consistently called on the Government of Israel to ease movement, including at sea, and will continue to do so. We encourage the Palestinian Authority to fully resume its government functions in Gaza, and ensure that the reconciliation process between Palestinian factions is compliant with the Quartet Principles.</p> more like this

The experts also found constraints on the provision of services in the camps and shelters for survivors of sexual violence in a number of respects, including lighting, physical access to health and other support services, and physical security, especially at night.</p><p>We are urgently implementing their recommendations in consultation with local actors, including by providing capacity building on the documentation of cases and further support for survivors of sexual violence.</p><p>We are also deploying further civilian experts and trainers to build capacity on documentation. The Department for International Development (DfID) continues to fund the United Nations Population Fund, International Organization for Migration, UNICEF and Action Against Hunger, to improve outreach to and identification of survivors, establish referral pathways, and improve case management and support. DfID funding is also supporting gender-based violence services, including the provision of medical services, counselling and psychological support.</p>
