The UK remains fully committed to the Global Coalition against Daesh and we must not lose sight of the threat that they still pose.

We are in close contact with the US and other allies regarding the next stage of the campaign against Daesh in Syria but we are clear that our key aim is to defeat this evil terrorist group.
