answer text <p>The UK wants to see a more stable, peaceful and prosperous Iraq. Across our programmes, we aim to counter threats and foster stability and development, while promoting UK interests and values. Our funding and support is delivered through implementing partners and not directly through the Government of Iraq. While we do not provide any UK funding or support directly to the Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF), it is not always possible for the UK to restrict participation in UK-funded initiatives to only non-PMF personnel.</p> more like this

answer text <p>A Joint Analysis of Conflict and Stability (JACS) process is context-dependent. It is triggered by specialist technical advice that new or updated joint analysis is needed. The decision to commission a JACS is ordinarily made by the Head of Mission or at Director-level in FCDO, as well as relevant senior leads in HMG departments. The process for conducting the assessment is available in a guidance note on GOV.UK at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/joint-analysis-of-conflict-and-stability-jacs-guidance-note.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The UK will continue to stand with Ukraine for as long as it takes to restore Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, and to secure a just and lasting peace underpinned by the UN Charter. The FCDO's non-military support to Ukraine since the start of the invasion amounts to £4.7 billion. This includes over £4.2 billion fiscal support through World Bank loan guarantees and grants; £357 million in humanitarian assistance to Ukraine and the region; £150 million to support Ukraine's energy security and resilience; and £2.5 million in support for Ukraine's domestic prosecution of international crimes.</p> more like this
