Foreign Office Minister Alistair Burt MP

Speaking today, Minister for the Middle East and North Africa, Alistair Burt said:  

“I welcome the announcement today by the United Nations and the League of Arab States that Lakhdar Brahimi will take on the role of Special Representative for Syria. The UK fully supports the appointment of Mr Brahimi and welcomes the vast experience he brings with him to this important role to seek a political solution to the violence in Syria. I hope the international community will join together in lending its full support to Mr Brahimi to work with all sides in the Syrian conflict to end the months of bloodshed. I look forward to an early opportunity to discuss with Mr Brahimi the ways in which the UK can support him and diplomatic efforts to end the violence in Syria.”
