The UK strongly supports the UN-led Geneva process to end the conflict in Syria, as mandated by UN Security Council Resolution 2254. We use our bilateral discussions and our position on the UN Security Council, the International Syria Support Group and the Small Group on Syria to urge all international actors to prioritise this process. At a meeting on 25 June with UN Special Envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, UK and the other Small Group members reaffirmed our collective support for his efforts to achieve an inclusive political settlement.
