We continue to support the Syrian moderate opposition who have previously shown themselves capable of pushing Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) back, and are at the forefront of the fight against them. The only sustainable solution to the crisis in Syria is through reaching a negotiated political transition by mutual consent, which would enable moderate Syrians to come together to counter ISIL, free from the attacks of the regime. We must stick to this fundamental principle, endorsed by the United Nations Security Council. To achieve this we are continuing to put pressure on the Assad regime and its international backers to engage in the political process and we are supporting the moderate opposition who will be a critical component of peace talks. The UK is delivering £30 million of non-lethal support this year to strengthen an inclusive moderate opposition as well as to bolster regional stability.
