Asked for details about the Foreign Secretary’s (FS) trip to New York, the Prime Minister’s Spokesperson (PMS) told the assembled media that Government hoped to agree a United Nations Security Council Resolution this week, the international community had repeatedly called on President Assad to stop the killing and repression of civilians.

Asked for details about what to expect in New York, the PMS said that we have been working in New York to support a text drafted by Arab members of the Security Council which promotes a regional approach to the crisis. We welcome the briefing tomorrow by Qatari Foreign Minister, Hamad bin Jassim, and Arab League Secretary General, Al Arabiy. We believe that the UN must act to support the people of Syria and that Russia can no longer explain blocking the UN and providing cover for the regime’s brutal repression.

Asked if the PM had made any calls on the matter, the PMS said that the FS had been leading on the issue.
