Syria

When asked about the situation in Syria, the Prime Minister?s Official Spokesperson (PMOS) said the government wanted to see a political solution to the crisis in Syria. The PMOS said that if there was an opportunity to work with other partners in the region ? partners that the government had not engaged with as much to date, nor had been of the same mind in terms of how to approach the conflict in Syria ? then the government should consider them. The priority was to work to deliver a political solution where the Syrian people could live in a prosperous, democratic and peaceful country ? something, the PMOS added, President Assad could not deliver.

In respect of British airstrikes in the country, the PMOS said the Prime Minister thought there was a strong case for joining coalition airstrikes against ISIL in Syria, but only on a consensual basis through the House of Commons.
