Foreign Secretary statement on Bab Al-Hawa crossing

UK Foreign Secretary welcomes UN Security Council Resolution on Syria aid access.

9 July 2021

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:

"The United Nations Security Council has today adopted Resolution 2585, allowing the delivery of UN cross-border aid into Syria to continue through Bab Al-Hawa."

"This is a welcome step, but urgent work must be done by the international community to find a sustainable, long-term solution to deliver aid into northern Syria. The lives of more than 13 million vulnerable Syrians depend on it. The UK will continue to push for a credible political settlement, as the only way to bring an end to the conflict."
