The UK is strongly committed to the renewal of UNSCR 2504 to enable continued cross-border humanitarian access into Syria. We have expressed this position repeatedly at the UN Security Council, mostly recently at the Syria Humanitarian session on 19 May, and have also engaged bilaterally with other Security Council members on this issue. Negotiations remain ongoing ahead of the expiry of the current resolution in July.
