When asked about the possibility of the UK sending combat troops to Iraq, the PMOS said the Prime Minister?s position hadn?t changed.

With regard to the forthcoming UN Security Council (UNSC) meeting on foreign fighters, the PMOS said the UNSC would seek to foster support for measures that countries around the world – cooperating particularly with countries in the region – could implement to deal with, prevent, and impede the flow of people travelling to the region to take part in violence and terrorist-related activities.

When asked if the UK would involve Russia in the international response to ISIL, the PMOS said the UK already had. The PMOS also reiterated that in terms of tackling ISIL, the challenge needed to be addressed in both Iraq and Syria, a part of which involved securing a transition away from the Assad regime. The UK would continue to press Russia to do all it could to bring about that transition, the PMOS added.
