Labour press release
Douglas Alexander MP, Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary, responding to news that the Government will provide support to the Free Syrian Army, said:
“Given that Syria has descended into civil war the Government needs to act with real care.
“The international community should be focused on de-escalating the violence in Syria, not escalating it.
“Alongside humanitarian aid for the refugees of this conflict, the Government should be focusing its efforts on better understanding the diverse opposition to Assad and supporting the efforts of the Arab League to unify that opposition around a credible plan for transition.”
