We have in the past pressed the National Coalition to be inclusive, respecting all sections of Syrian society including ethnic and religious minorities. The National Coalition has made strenuous efforts to broaden its membership base which includes Kurds, Christians and other religious and ethnic groups demonstrating that it has a democratic and pluralistic vision for Syria.</p> more like this

Neither the UK nor the international community recognises the unilateral decision made by the Partiya Yekitiya Demokrat (PYD) to form a temporary administration in the Kurdish areas of Syria. The UK has consistently made it clear to the PYD that they need to demonstrate commitment to pluralism, respecting other political forces within the Kurdish areas rather than linked to the regime, and willingness to co-operate with the National Coalition. It will be for the Syrians to decide the exact nature of the settlement including whether an autonomous region will be created for the Kurds in Syria.</p><p>We appreciate the difficulty in delivering aid in northern Syria as a result of insecurity. The UK is working closely with our partners and continues to push all parties to allow the safe, unhindered delivery of aid.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Assad regime is responsible for the crisis in Syria; there is no realistic prospect of peace while Assad is in power. The only way to end the violence, and counter the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, is through inclusive governance which can represent all communities, free from Assad. The UK continues to believe that a negotiated political transition in Syria, in line with the Geneva communiqué, is the only way to end the conflict and alleviate Syria’s humanitarian crisis. The UN is best placed to facilitate any talks between the regime and the opposition designed to help bring about a political settlement.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In the last six months, the global coalition has conducted over two thousand air strikes against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in Iraq, with Royal Air Force pilots flying over 6700 hours of surveillance, reconnaissance, refueling and strike missions. Our efforts, and those of the coalition as a whole, have helped check ISIL’s advance and assisted the Iraqis in liberating a number of important towns. Coalition airstrikes are also having an effect in Syria, including at Kobane. The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Mr Hammond), co-hosted, with US Secretary of State John Kerry, a conference on 22 January to push forward other streams of work including disrupting ISIL’s funding streams, tackling foreign fighters, and countering ISIL’s twisted ideology. In Syria, Assad must continue to bear responsibility for the savage civil war and the harrowing impact it is having on his own people. He is a catalyst of terrorism, not its cure. So it is vital that we keep supporting moderate voices and keep pushing for a political settlement that ends the civil war. We have been clear that defeating ISIL will take considerable time, but we have a comprehensive, long-term and well-coordinated strategy in place.</p><p> </p>
