star this property answer text <p>In 2014, exports to the EU accounted for 44% of UK exports (ONS). The Office of Budget Responsibility (OBR) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), sources that we typically refer to, only forecast at the aggregate level. Therefore the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has no estimates of the proportion of exports that the EU would account for in 2020, 2030 and 2050.</p> more like this

The oil comes primarily from fields in Northern Syria. The vast majority is consumed by Daesh, sold within the territory it controls, or smuggled into regional black markets. The only Government we have evidence of being involved in purchasing oil from Daesh is the Assad regime.</p><p>Individuals involved in brokering oil deals between Daesh and the Assad regime have been sanctioned by the EU.
