star this property answer text <p>​One of the recommendations of the Independent Review of the Modern Slavery Act was the establishment of an international modern slavery envoy, to represent the UK in international discussions on modern slavery and to advance the government's objectives on this vital agenda.</p><p>HMG expects to announce the name of the successful candidate shortly.</p><p>The FCO have agreed with other relevant Government Departments that this role will be most effective if it is combined with the existing migration envoy role. In international settings, trafficking and migration are often covered in the same dialogues, and we believe that similar skills would be required for both components of the role. This also reflects the joint roles of some of our interlocutors in key capitals. However it is important that trafficking should not be seen through a purely migration prism, and vice versa.</p> more like this

Within this framework we support the efforts of the authorities and civil society to address the needs and aspirations of the Papuan people.</p><p>In August 2019, I attended the Pacific Island Forum in the UK’s capacity as Dialogue Partner (an observer). The UK notes the communique issued at the Pacific Island Forum but we have no plans to respond to it. We regard Papua and West Papua provinces as being part of Indonesia and consider dialogue on territorial issues in Indonesia to be a matter for the Indonesian people.</p><p>UK Officials at the Embassy in Jakarta, including the Ambassador, visit Papua regularly. Our Officials also press the Indonesian authorities to address legitimate human rights concerns. This includes upholding the right of all citizens to peacefully protest, and ensuring the sustainable and equitable development of the province through political dialogue.</p> more like this

We believe that it is important for the United Kingdom to continue to maintain its support, through our political engagement and programme activity, for Kyrgyzstan's ambition to strengthen democracy and the rule of law. Our Ambassador frequently engages with the Kyrgyz Government, stressing the importance of democratic standards and a free and fair judicial system for all. The United Kingdom's programme funding also works to support Kyrgyzstan's continued transition to a parliamentary democracy.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are disappointed that North Korea has conducted multiple short-range ballistic missile tests in recent weeks. These are a violation of UN Security Council Resolutions. The British Government has repeatedly expressed its concern at North Korea’s breaches of international law and has ensured UN Security Council consideration of the matter, most recently on Tuesday 27 August. We urge North Korea to cease these tests and re-engage in talks with the United States. Until the dismantlement of North Korea’s nuclear and missile programmes, UN sanctions must remain and be fully enforced. It is our firm belief that complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation is the path to a peaceful and more prosperous future for the North Korean people.</p><p>​</p> more like this
