To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what steps his Department is taking to strengthen international consensus on opposing Daesh and to build alliances to work to that end.
My officials and I regularly hold bilateral and multilateral discussions with our partners to build and sustain the international consensus against Daesh. The UK is a leading member of the Global Coalition of 65 countries and international organisations, including many in the region, united to defeat Daesh through a long-term, comprehensive strategy.
The UK has led efforts in the UN to rally the international community against Daesh. UN Security Council Resolution 2249, agreed in November 2015, underlines the international community’s united and unambiguous opposition to Daesh and its determination to defeat it.
