The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advised strongly against this visit, both for security reasons and because such visits can become tools of the Asad regime's propaganda.</p><p>The FCO's analysis – based on reports from the FCO network and a wide range of credible independent sources – is that the Asad regime is responsible for widespread atrocities against the Syrian people. This includes the death of an estimated 400,000 people in the last five years, the use of chemical weapons, torture, arbitrary detention and disappearances.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text As required by UN Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 2139, the Secretary General has produced monthly reports to the Security Council on the humanitarian situation in Syria. UNSCR 2165 and its successor, UNSCR 2191, also continue to be implemented. According to the UN Secretary General’s most recent report, by 31 July 2015, the UN and its partners had delivered 154 shipments of aid into Syria. The UK has allocated £233 million for the provision of humanitarian assistance inside Syria, to be delivered through our UN and non-governmental organisation partners. However, the delivery of aid in Syria is complicated by the continued obstruction of aid delivery by the Assad regime, as well as by the regime’s indiscriminate attacks on population centres, especially through the use of barrel bombs. Countries with influence over the Syrian government, including Russia, must use that influence to press the Assad regime to comply with its responsibilities under international humanitarian and human rights law.

unstar this property answer text <p>The UK does not supply weapons to anyone in Syria, and we have played a major role in trying to prevent both the regime and extremists in Syria from acquiring weapons. <br><br>UN sanctions require that no states, groups or individuals may make available arms or funds to designated groups or individuals. In February 2015 the UN Security Council unanimously adopted UN Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 2199, which the British Government co-sponsored. UNSCR 2199 specifically targets the fund raising methods used by Al-Qaida and its affiliates operating in Syria and Iraq. <br><br>The UK is also at the forefront of efforts to broaden the EU Syria sanctions regime, which limits the regime's access to funding. This year the EU has listed 24 new Syrian regime ministers who are jointly responsible for the regime’s reprehensible policies. There are several EU-Syria trade embargoes currently in place, including prohibiting exportation of chemical weapons (and precursors) and luxury goods to Syria, importation of oil from Syria and access to EU financial institutions. <br><br>We will work hard to sustain these efforts.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The UK has consistently called for the situation in Syria to be referred to the International Criminal Court and supported efforts at the UN Security Council to achieve this. However, these efforts were blocked by Russia and China on 22 May 2014. In partnership with other donor countries, we have funded the collection of documentary evidence of human rights abuses and violations. We will also look to expand the EU sanctions regime to cover more people responsible for human rights abuses and violations. We will continue to press for those responsible to be held accountable.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text We recognise the important contribution that recognised religious leaders can make on the Syria political track. Along with other leading members of civil society, they will need a strong voice in the debate on Syria’s future. The UK has engaged directly with a number of religious leaders and representatives of minority communities. The UK has also been funding projects aimed at promoting dialogue between different ethnic and sectarian groups in Syria, as we seek further progress on a political settlement. Minorities including Alawites, Christians, Druze, Kurds and Turkmen have been represented in these projects. more like this
