star this property answer text <p>The British Government remains committed to supporting Greece's efforts to manage migration effectively and is working with the Greek Government to this end. We hope to sign shortly a UK-Greece Migration Action Plan which will set out the framework for future bilateral co-operation on migration. Currently the United Kingdom is providing interpreters in the camps, helping to identify migrants and ensuring they get the help they need as quickly as possible. The United Kingdom provides financial support to the Metadrasi children's shelter on Samos, which provides a safe place to stay and professional support to the most vulnerable unaccompanied children who arrive on Samos. The DUBS scheme is continuing for the transfer of the most vulnerable unaccompanied children to the United Kingdom. The scheme aims to help provide support to the most vulnerable migrants, and alleviate pressures on the islands. The United Kingdom also continues to support search and rescue operations in the Aegean, with United Kingdom vessels rescuing 16000 migrants since 2015. The EU is continuing to work with the Greek authorities to improve migration management processes.</p>

The UK is at the forefront of efforts to ensure all states meet this obligation. We raised our concerns directly with Senegal in February 2019 and will reach out to UN member states again before the December deadline. We work closely with UN officials on this matter. We will continue to urge full compliance of UN Security resolutions on North Korea.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) has been a success. Over the last 50 years it has minimised the proliferation of nuclear weapons; provided the framework for significant levels of nuclear disarmament – the UK has reduced its warhead numbers by over half since their Cold War peak – and provided the framework to develop secure and safe peaceful uses of nuclear energy globally.</p><p>The UK continues to work with its allies to encourage all possessor states to recognise their responsibilities and remain committed to the gradual multilateral disarmament negotiated within the framework of the NPT, as the security situation allows. For example, the UK is chairing the P5 process, a forum for the UK, US, France, China and Russia to discuss disarmament and non-proliferation issues. It builds trust and confidence, and contributes to improving the current security environment. The UK also plays a leading role on nuclear disarmament verification, which will ensure technologies and procedures are in place to provide confidence that nuclear weapons have been eliminated.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We are clear that there should be accountability for the atrocities set out in the reports of the UN Fact Finding Mission on human rights abuses in Myanmar. We assess, however, that there is insufficient support amongst Security Council members for a referral to the International Criminal Court at this time. The UK has nonetheless taken steps to maintain the international spotlight on the atrocities committed. In October 2018 the UK organised for the UN Fact Finding Mission to brief the UN Security Council on its findings. The UK was also instrumental in securing a resolution at the UN Human Rights Council to set up an independent UN mechanism to collect and preserve evidence on the atrocities. This will help to ensure future prosecutions are possible through domestic or international mechanisms.</p><p>​</p> more like this
