star this property question text To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, if he will make an assessment of the implications for his policies of the claims in the July 2019 report by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute entitled Mapping Conditions in Rakhine State that (a) minimal preparations have been made for any return of Rohingya refugees from Bangladesh, (b) 320 of the settlements damaged or destroyed during the genocide of 2017 show no signs of reconstruction, (c) 58 remaining settlements were damaged or destroyed after the crisis during 2018 and (d) six suspected military facilities have been built on the sites of destroyed settlements. more like this

star this property answer text <p>​We are aware of the findings of the report published in July 2019 by Australian Strategic Policy Institute. To the best of our knowledge, we agree that destroyed settlements have not been rebuilt. While there may have been some minimal reconstruction, it is not on the original sites. We are also aware of the Myanmar military's use of land previously occupied by the Rohingya. We support the view that conditions on the ground are not yet in place to support repatriation of refugees in Rakhine. We are clear that safe and sustainable returns will not be possible until conditions in Rakhine are significantly improved. It is essential that the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is given unfettered access to assess conditions.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​The British Government takes extremely seriously our longstanding duty to uphold the implementation of the Sino-British Joint Declaration. It is a legally binding treaty, registered with the UN, and remains in force until 2047. We will continue to monitor closely events in Hong Kong, speaking publicly on issues of concern. We regularly raise our concerns directly with the Chinese and Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) Governments. The Foreign Secretary raised Hong Kong, and the importance of the Joint Declaration, with Chinese State Councillor Wang Yi on 31 July. He also spoke to Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam on 9 August, when he noted our support for Hong Kong's high degree of autonomy, and our commitment to 'One Country, Two Systems'.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are deeply concerned about the persecution of Christians, as we are about those of other faiths or beliefs, in many parts of the world. The former Foreign Secretary commissioned an Independent Review into the subject, led by the Bishop of Truro, and the Government has accepted all of its recommendations.</p><p>Officials and Ministers regularly raise the protection of minority communities, including religious minorities, with the Pakistani Government. The former Foreign Secretary discussed the treatment of minority religious communities with Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi during his visit to the UK in June 2019. Minister of State, Lord (Tariq) Ahmad of Wimbledon, raised our concerns with Pakistan's Human Rights Minister on 19 February. We have also supported projects in Pakistan to promote greater tolerance and religious freedom and, in November 2018, announced a new £12m fund to bolster the work of civil society and NGOs to promote respect, and the value of religious diversity and tolerance.</p><p>The UK is committed to supporting Nigeria in upholding the right to freedom of religion or belief, as protected by its constitution. The recent escalation in intercommunal violence has affected multiple states of Nigeria and communities of all religions. We regularly engage faith-based organisations and raise our concerns with the Nigerian government. In northeast Nigeria, Boko Haram and Islamic State West Africa seek to undermine the right to freedom of religion by attacking both Muslims and Christians who do not subscribe to their extremist views. The UK remains committed to supporting Nigeria in tackling the insurgency through a substantial and increasing package of security, humanitarian and development support.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is reviewing its strategy on Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict. By undertaking this review, in the 20<sup>th</sup> anniversary year of the first UN Security Council Resolution to focus on the Protection of Civilians, the Government will be able to ensure that its evolving approach reflects the changing international landscape and the complexity of many – often protracted – conflicts. The review also provides an opportunity for the Government to consider recent research by academics and NGOs in this important field. We aim to complete the review by the end of 2019.</p> more like this
