Repatriating orphans from Syria: Foreign Secretary’s statement

The UK government is facilitating the return of a number of orphans from Syria.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab yesterday said:

These innocent, orphaned, children should never have been subjected to the horrors of war. We have facilitated their return home, because it was the right thing to do.

Now they must be allowed the privacy and given the support to return to a normal life.
