Syria: Humanitarian Aid

The UK strongly supports the re-authorisation of the Al Yaroubiyah border crossing to allow humanitarian aid into north-east Syria. As outlined in the UN Secretary General's report of February 2020, this remains the best route through which to deliver aid cross-border into north-east Syria. We have set out our position repeatedly at the UN Security Council, mostly recently on 19 May. The Foreign Secretary has raised this with his Russian, German and French counterparts and senior officials have discussed this with the other Security Council members including Belgium and China.
