Mogherni: the EU officially calls Turkey to seize military action in N. Syria
CNA Athanasios Athanasiou - Belgium/Brussels 09/10/2019 21:44


In light of the Turkish military operation in north-east Syria, the EU reaffirms that a sustainable solution to the Syrian conflict cannot be achieved militarily and "calls upon Turkey to cease the unilateral military action. Renewed armed hostilities in the north-east will further undermine the stability of the whole region, exacerbate civilian suffering and provoke further displacements", EU High Representative Vice President Federica Mogherini declared on Wednesday evening, on behalf of the EU Member States.

The High Representative on Foreign Policy also warned that "prospects for the UN-led political process to achieve peace in Syria will be more difficult" and "unilateral action on Turkey’s part threatens the progress achieved by the Global Coalition to defeat of Da`esh, of which Turkey is a member".
