star this property answer text <p>​The next African Union (AU) Executive Council will be on 4-5 July 2019 in Niamey, Niger. It will take place along-side the first Mid-Year Coordination Meeting of the AU and the African Regional Economic Communities on 7-8 July. Attendance at such events by partners like the United Kingdom is by invitation. The Government's priorities for the AU are reflected in the strategic partnership agreement between the AU and the United Kingdom signed in Addis Ababa on 21 February 2019. Through this partnership we will work together to support a shared vision for a prosperous, secure and innovative Africa, building on growing economic ties to forge new opportunities for young people and reinforce our close bonds. Further information on the partnership can be found at: <a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/news/uk-to-invest-up-to-30m-through-partnership-with-african-union" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/news/uk-to-invest-up-to-30m-through-partnership-with-african-union</a></p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​The UK is part of a longstanding European Union - East African partnership on managing migration, combatting organised immigration crime and addressing the devastating effects of trafficking in the Horn and North Africa. Discussions occur through mechanisms including the Khartoum Process, of which the UK is a member of the Steering Committee. The last senior officials meeting of the Khartoum Process took place in Nairobi on 8-9 May 2018. British officials in Sudan frequently engage with EU counterparts on a variety of issues, including migration control and border security. Part of EU-African joint efforts to tackle organised immigration crime in the Horn of Africa is delivered through the 'Regional Operations Centre Khartoum' (ROCK), to which the UK has contributed funding for a specialist expert in the past. However, due to recent events in Sudan, EU funded work on the ROCK is suspended. British officials in London, the region and Brussels are in frequent contact with EU partners to ensure all work in Sudan reflects the current situation, in line with our human rights priorities.</p>

However, the British Government is disappointed that the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement (COHA) signed by all parties in December last year has not held, and that the HLRF has so far failed to generate serious commitments from the parties to compromise.</p><p>We strongly condemn ongoing violations of the COHA, and urge the Intergovernmental Authority on Development to take immediate action to ensure that those who violate any agreement, or undermine the peace process, face consequences for their actions, to leave the parties in no doubt about the region's commitment to peace.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The British Government has supported a range of activities designed to tackle irregular migration in Libya through the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF). Currently the CSSF supports the National Crime Agency-led Organised Immigration Crime Taskforce which, in the last 12 months, has supported the development of a Libyan-owned serious organised crime strategy, sharing best practice with the Libya Attorney-General's Office, and building niche law enforcement capabilities with trusted Libyan partners to tackle modern slavery and organised immigration crime threats. In addition, the CSSF is supporting the deployment of staff to the Operational Headquarters of EUNAVFOR Med Operation SOPHIA, the EU mission disrupting migrant smuggling and trafficking in the Mediterranean.</p> more like this
