unstar this property answer text <p>The UK played a leading role in ensuring the unanimous adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 2139 on 22 February. Since then, we have regularly echoed the UN Security Council's demand that all parties to the conflict, in particular the Syrian authorities, implement fully the requirements of UNSCR 2139. We welcome the National Coalition's commitment to implementing UNSCR 2139 and have encouraged those with influence on the parties to urge them to implement the demands of the resolution. The UK is working closely with P5 colleagues and others in New York on a draft resolution in response to the UN Secretary General's call for the UNSC to act decisively to address the worsening humanitarian situation.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The UK is deeply concerned by the growth of terrorism in Syria and Iraq. ISIL are a brutal terrorist group who want to impose rule on people using their extremist ideology, violence and extortion.</p><p>ISIL's advance in Iraq shows that they are a serious threat. It shows clearly the importance of taking a strong stand against extremists, and that is why we are giving our full backing to the moderate groups in Syria who are fighting them. It is not yet clear what the recent developments in Iraq mean in the longer term, but clearly ISIL's ability to operate in both Syria and Iraq is a cause of concern for the international community.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The lack of democratic freedoms in Syria is at the root of the current crisis. The recent elections held by the Assad regime were a parody of democracy, taking place against the backdrop of horrendous violence, and with many millions of Syrians disenfranchised.</p><p>Since its formation in October 2012, we have provided the National Coalition with practical and political support designed to help it become ever more credible and inclusive and to promote democracy inside Syria. We have also worked with grass-roots civil society groups and local councils in Syria to promote good governance at a local level. Our work with the moderate opposition is now more vital than ever as they face a dual threat from the Assad regime and terrorist groups such as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) who want to destroy democracy in the region and replace it with an Islamic State.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Given the vulnerabilities of those brought to the UK under the Vulnerable Persons Relocation scheme, and the fact that no one yet has received a full 12 months of support, it is not possible at this stage to identify the average cost of refugee resettlement. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that the cost of resettling a refugee in the UK is far greater than that of supporting a refugee in the region. We can therefore help far more people in need through our support to partners delivering assistance in neighbouring countries.</p><p> </p> more like this
