We have repeatedly pressed the Syrian regime and its backers, Russia and Iran, to abide by their obligations under Resolution 2401. At the UN Human Rights Council we secured a UK-proposed resolution calling for the Resolution’s full and immediate implementation. The Foreign Secretary and International Development Secretary issued joint statements on 15 March and 22 March, condemning the appalling situation in Eastern Ghouta and calling for the implementation of UNSCR 2401.
