​As a member of the UN Security Council and the Syria Small Group, the UK is working in support of a political settlement to the conflict that protects all Syrians, including Christians and other minority groups. We have consistently called for members of religious minorities to be protected, including through the Syria resolutions at the UN Human Rights Council, on which the UK leads. We are also at the forefront of the humanitarian response to the Syria crisis, providing life-saving support to millions of Syrians from all communities, supporting them to remain in the region.
