We are working closely with our international partners, including NATO and the EU, to try to assist and protect civilians, including Christians and other groups, from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). The UK brought forward UN Security Council Resolution 2170, which was adopted unanimously, and co-sponsored a Human Rights Council Resolution on ISIL’s abuses which was passed on 1 September 2014.
