We recognise the important contribution that recognised religious leaders can make on the Syria political track. Along with other leading members of civil society, they will need a strong voice in the debate on Syria’s future. The UK has engaged directly with a number of religious leaders and representatives of minority communities. The UK has also been funding projects aimed at promoting dialogue between different ethnic and sectarian groups in Syria, as we seek further progress on a political settlement. Minorities including Alawites, Christians, Druze, Kurds and Turkmen have been represented in these projects.
