PM: 'Important we work with the Syrian opposition'

Of course, we all want these peace talks to take place, we want Geneva II to happen. But we can't want it more than the participants involved in Syria's bloody conflict.

We have to make sure it's in their interests that these talks go ahead. That's why, yes, diplomacy is important but the work we do with the Syrian opposition that supports democracy, that supports a free, fair and pluralistic society - that is important.

They are standing up for millions of Syrians who have been bombed and blasted out of their houses. Those are the people you need to talk to in the refugee camps in Jordan and elsewhere - to see how they feel about how badly the rest of the world is currently letting them down.

– Prime minister David Cameron
