We expect all parties to respect their obligations towards civilians and under International Humanitarian Law. The Foreign Secretary conveyed this message to the Turkish Minister, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, on 10 October and the Prime Minister made this clear to President Erdogan on 20 October.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​Having repeatedly called for scrutiny into the multiple attacks on UN-supported or deconflicted civilian infrastructure in north west Syria, we have welcomed the establishment of the UN Board of Inquiry. Since the same issue does not apply elsewhere in the country, we will not be calling for the UN Secretary General to expand the scope of the Board of Inquiry beyond north west Syria. The UN’s International Commission of Inquiry on Syria continues to have the mandate to investigate violations of international human rights law throughout the country.</p> more like this

We continue to support the UN Commission of Inquiry's investigations into human rights violations and abuses in Syria and the work of the UN International Impartial and Independent Mechanism (IIIM) which is gathering evidence for the prosecution of persons responsible for the most serious crimes under international law in Syria. The UK has contributed over £9 million since 2012 in support of Syrian and international efforts to gather evidence and assist victims of human rights abuses and violations, including £950,000 to the IIIM.</p> more like this
