Presentation: Our commitment to a sustainable solution to the conflict and humanitarian crisis in Syria: UK Statement at UN Safety Council

Second, along with humanitarian needs growing every year, the Assad regime is constantly on the profit from the production and trafficking of narcotics, most prominently captagon – which provides vast amounts of dollars annually to the routine. Turning the country into a ‘narco-state’ harms the people of Syria and adds to regional instability.

Third, we applaud Special Envoy Pedersen’s efforts to continue engagement along with Damascus, as well as countries in the area and beyond. The UK appears ready to support a politics process in line with resolution 2254. We must guard against any process that does not deliver within the legitimate aspirations of the Syrian people and which will not contribute to a lasting and sustainable peace.
