​We welcome the agreement on 15 June of a Presidential Statement, sponsored by the UK as penholder, which called upon the parties to the conflict to agree the modalities for a ceasefire, take steps to address the humanitarian crisis, and restart political talks. We are now working urgently with our international and regional partners to ensure that the Security Council's words are converted into action.
