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

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>

We have consistently called on all parties to protect civilians, improve commercial and humanitarian access for essential imports of food, fuel and medical supplies; facilitate rapid and safe access to all people in need; and safeguard major access routes and key infrastructure in Yemen, including airports, sea ports and fuel distribution sites. The re-opening of Sana’a international airport was discussed by the Yemeni parties in Stockholm, but they did not reach agreement. We encourage them to continue working closely with the UN to find a solution.</p> more like this
