All international efforts towards peace in Syria must be in support of the UN-led process. The Syrian Negotiation Commission continues to engage constructively, in good faith and without preconditions. The Asad regime must now engage credibly in Geneva talks and Russia must use all the influence it can to ensure that it does so.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We welcome any initiative that contributes to a reduction of violence in Syria and creates the conditions for a sustainable political settlement. Local agreements can contribute to this goal, but the goal must remain a full nationwide cessation of hostilities. We are disappointed that in spite of announcements of de-escalation, violence continues, particularly in Eastern Ghouta, and the regime continues to obstruct humanitarian access. We are clear that the UN-led Geneva process between the Syrian parties remains the forum for reaching a lasting solution to the conflict.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Invitations to participate in the Geneva talks are a matter for the UN Special Envoy. The so-called Democratic Federation of Northern Syria has not participated in the UN-mediated peace talks in Geneva. It is not referred to in UN Security Council Resolution 2254 which sets the framework for these talks. However, Kurdish groups have been represented in Geneva through the Kurdish National Council, as part of the opposition High Negotiations Committee and in the latest round as part of the refreshed Syria Negotiations Commission. Furthermore the UN Special Envoy has involved Kurdish and other minority groups in civil society discussions alongside formal talks in Geneva.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The issues suggested by the noble Lord Williams of Baglan are being addressed through the UK's work to tackle the Syria crisis. The International Syria Support Group meets weekly at official level and is supported by the team of the UN Special Envoy for Syria. At UK urging, the UN has established a Working Group with a small secretariat to lead on stabilisation planning for when a political settlement is reached, which the UK is helping fund. Clearly, Russia must be a part of any solution and we support engagement but Russia must stop bombing civilian areas and encourage the regime to do the same if it is genuinely interested in finding a political solution to the conflict.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK has been undertaking stabilisation activities in Syria for a number of years, through projects totalling over £100 million funded under the Conflict Pool and thereafter the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund. But as the Government made clear at the London Conference on Syria in February, the post conflict stabilisation and reconstruction needs in Syria following a political settlement which ends the civil war will require a significant international response.</p><p> </p><p>We are currently working with our international partners to ensure a coordinated post-conflict planning effort which is able to respond to the timeline that will – we hope - emerge from successful UN-mediated peace talks in Geneva, which are due to resume on 14 March. However, as agreed at the London Conference, it will rightly be for the UN to coordinate this work, with the support of Member States including the UK.</p><p> </p><p>The UK is supporting peace negotiations through our leading role in the International Syria Support Group, as well as our support to the Syrian High Negotiations Committee. UN Special Envoy Staffan de Mistura intends to resume peace negotiations in Geneva from 14 March. We hope that this effort delivers rapid progress towards political transition as envisaged by the 2012 Geneva Communiqué.</p>

The UK is working closely with international partners to bring about a negotiated end to the crisis in Syria, including through Ministerial participation in high-level international meetings. The ultimate solution to the crisis must be a political transition, which brings legitimate and inclusive governance to Syria. We are flexible about how the process of transition would work but are clear that Assad cannot be part of the future of Syria.</p> more like this
