Sanctions are carefully targeted so as not to impede the delivery of humanitarian assistance. The UK seeks to minimise any unintended consequences of sanctions, including through use of licensing provisions or exceptions where appropriate. HMG has regular engagement with NGOs and banks through the Tri-Sector Group and is committed to ensuring the delivery of humanitarian assistance.
