The Government takes child protection and human rights very seriously and encourages the governments of all countries to comply with them. Where the UK government is helping fund activity by a foreign government we keep it under regular review. However, security or any other measures undertaken by other sovereign states and their compliance with child protection and human rights remain the responsibility of the government of that country.
