The UK, with allies and partners, demanded and secured a tougher UN Security Council resolution - UNSCR 2165 - which required Syria to open its borders to humanitarian aid deliveries. In parallel, we have also intensified our work delivering humanitarian aid to people in desperate need, including across borders and conflict lines.
