Speaking after attending the Syria talks in Vienna on Saturday, the Foreign Secretary, Philip Hammond said:
Our discussions in Vienna have been constructive, and there is now momentum behind a process working towards peace for the people of Syria.
We have agreed to work towards a ceasefire, and to chart a course that will see the Syrian people take charge of their own destiny. The UK remains opposed to Bashar al-Assad playing any part in the future of Syria.
The terrible attacks in Paris have shown us that a united and strong response to solving the civil war in Syria is needed urgently, to ensure everyone is committed to combating the barbaric threat that ISIL and its followers pose.
