MEXICO CITY - British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said on Monday he was deeply concerned about the state of the ceasefire in Syria and that a new initiative was needed to keep dialogue alive.

"There is a need for a new initiative in the Syria dialogue to keep it alive, the Syrian moderate opposition is finding it increasingly difficult to justify their participation in a political process," Hammond said during a visit to Mexico City.

Hammond also said that irrespective of who won the US presidential election in November, Britain's relationship with the United States would continue.
