unstar this property answer text The UK supports a range of moderates in Syria who oppose both the Assad regime and extremism. We do not provide support to extremist groups, and the need to prevent diversion to these groups is built into our programmes. In August 2013 we gave the Supreme Military Council (SMC) of the Free Syrian Army escape hoods, detector paper and nerve-agent pre-treatment tablets to protect them from chemical weapons attack. This financial year the UK will be providing £1 million of non-lethal equipment to the moderate armed opposition. The exact equipment will depend on the requirements of the recipients, but could include commercially available communications equipment, commercially available vehicles, fuel, portable generators and logistics supplies such as clothing, rations and tents; and individual medical kits. The UK Government also expects to make a significant contribution to the recently announced US-led programme to train and equip the Syrian moderate armed opposition. Details of how that contribution will be delivered are currently being scoped. We also provide support to the political umbrella group the National Coalition. This includes advisory and strategic communications support. The UK does not supply weapons to anybody in Syria.

unstar this property answer text <p>We maintain a regular dialogue with the Turkish government on developments in Syria, including on the status of the Kurds in northern Syria. Turkey shares our concern about the present situation in Kobane and has made clear their commitment to support international efforts to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.</p><p>We applaud Turkey’s generosity in hosting over 190,000 refugees who have fled the fighting in Kobane, in addition to the 1.5 million refugees from Syria and Iraq already residing in Turkey. The Department for International Development has already responded to the urgent needs of Syrian Kurdish refugees who have fled to Turkey, and is ready to react swiftly to further developments.</p> more like this

We understand that Turkey has closed a number of border crossings with Syria following the occupation of the Syrian side by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). We have regular discussions with the Turkish government about the threat posed by ISIL. The Prime Minister, my right hon. Friend the Member for Witney (Mr Cameron), discussed cooperation against ISIL when he met Prime Minister Davutoğlu and President Erdoğan during a visit to Turkey on 9 December.</p> more like this

Given the serious vulnerability of the beneficiaries, our priority is to ensure that the support and accommodation they need is in place before they arrive in the UK.
