The Foreign Secretary, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) summoned the Russian Ambassador to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on 15 December to make clear the British Government's deep concern over the situation in Aleppo and Russia's actions in Syria. I have met the Russian Ambassador twice since my appointment as Minister for Europe and the Americas. We had a thorough discussion on Syria in August 2016 during which I also expressed the UK's concern about the situation in Aleppo and our shared interest in working together on a political settlement in Syria.
