star this property answer text <p>The UK plays a key role in opening up humanitarian access in Syria. Over 300 convoys of cross-border aid have been delivered because of the UK co-sponsored UN Security Council Resolutions 2165, 2191 and 2258, which enable aid to be delivered to those in need in Syria without the consent of the regime. British officials regularly raise issues relating to the management of the border with Syria in their discussions with the Turkish authorities.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK co-sponsored Security Council Resolutions 2165 and 2191, enabling the UN to deliver cross-border aid without the consent of the Syrian regime. We continue to call on all sides to the conflict to ensure free, unimpeded access for neutral and impartial humanitarian agencies to provide vital assistance to those in need. We worked hard to mobilise funding from other donors ahead of the third Kuwait Pledging Conference in March, which raised $3.6 billion, and we work alongside the UN to maintain momentum on fundraising longer-term. We also provide long term funding to our partners so they can plan ahead, and encourage on other donors to do the same.</p> more like this
