We continue to follow the situation in northern Syria closely. We discuss these issues with the Turkish government, and regularly review information and reporting from UN agencies and NGOs such as Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International to inform our assessments. We have urged the necessity of protecting the rights of the Kurdish inhabitants of the area, and raise concerns with Turkey where we have credible evidence.
