unstar this property answer text <p>The UK welcomes France’s efforts to promote peace. But we were always clear that a conference so close to the change of US administration, and without the attendance of the two main parties, was not the best way to make progress. Therefore we decided to attend the conference as an observer, at senior official level.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>UK Missions overseas aim to support families of UK citizens murdered abroad in a variety of ways. This includes providing important information about the local police and legal system, and what to expect at court hearings. Officials can also attend the first and last day of a trial and be present at the verdict; and can make or suggest appropriate representations to the local authorities if there are concerns that the investigation or judicial process is not being carried out in line with local laws or procedures.</p><p>We will consider intervening to make representations to the local authorities if there are concerns that an investigation is not being carried out in line with local procedures; if there are justified complaints about discrimination against the person involved; or where we judge that a local delay or decision creates significant distress for those involved. However we do not interfere in investigations or judicial processes of a country, just as we expect them not to interfere with investigations or judicial processes in the UK. It is therefore important that families consider appointing a local lawyer who can offer legal advice on local police and judicial processes, represent their interests in court and raise any concerns they may have.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The number of opposition groups fighting against the Asad regime in Syria has fluctuated throughout the conflict. There are hundreds of different groups, but many of these are very small and based only in a particular area, or are sub-units of larger groups. Groups frequently appear, disappear, merge or split. It is therefore not possible to specify a number.</p><p>The UK continues to work in support of a lasting political settlement based on political transition. A key part of this is our support for the moderate opposition which is committed to working towards a negotiated settlement. Many of the groups fighting the Asad regime are affiliated to the opposition umbrella organisation the High Negotiations Committee, which has set out a moderate and constructive vision for political transition, including respect for human rights and protection of all components of Syrian society.</p> more like this
