At recent meetings of the UN Security Council on Syria, including an emergency session on Idlib on 18 June, we have repeatedly called on the Syrian regime and Russia to end their current offensive in Idlib and to respect the ceasefire agreed between Russia and Turkey last year at Sochi. The Prime Minister raised the urgent need to restore the ceasefire in Idlib with President Putin and President Erdogan at the G20 Summit on 28-29 June. ​
