The International Syria Support Group has set out a target timeline for transition. This timeline includes the start of Syrian-led negotiations under UN auspices by 1 January 2016; transition within six months; and free and fair elections within 18 months. We are working with international partners to meet those targets and to provide the support needed to ensure that Syria can return to stability.
