The solution to the Syria conflict can only come from “meaningful political talks” between Syrian parties under UN auspices, EU High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini said at the ongoing EU-UN Syria conference in Brussels, Wednesday.

Mogherini highlighted the EU proposal for a political solution.

“It can only be a political negotiated solution. Unlock the Geneva talks. The proposal to set up a constitutional committee led by Syrians and under the UN leadership in Geneva should now be turned into reality,” she stated.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres meanwhile sent a short video message, denouncing the suffering of Syrian civilians. “I am particularly disturbed by the targeting of civilians and civilian infrastructure as well as the reported use of chemical weapons,” he stated.

“Surely we can all agree: any use of chemical weapons is abhorrent. It is our responsibility, not least to the victims of such attacks, to ensure accountability for these crimes,” he added.

Lebanon’s Prime Minister Saad Hariri for his part spoke about the situation of refugees in his country, where roughly one million Syrian refugees are located. “Based on what I witnessed can I honestly say that today we are better off than last year? The answer is simply no,” he stated.

“Ladies and gentlemen, the bitter truth is that in spite of all our efforts, combined efforts, conditions have deteriorated. Lebanon continues to be a big refugee camp,” he added.

Every time I see Hariri I can’t help but thinking he looks like suffering for a harsh hangover. Then he speaks and I think “indeed he does”.

This is par for this bunch. Lie on top of lie, no matter how ridiculous or flagrant. Hariri is so compromised, he must keep lying to keep his financial holdings in KSA. No mention by him of those that are returning to Syria, so how believable is he? The rest of the loons, trying to undermine the Astana process, because it is working to Syrias (and Syrians) benefit, keep whining about UN peace process. The only ‘UN peace process’ is a facade to destroy Syria and slaughter Syrians while the west continues it’s criminal enterprise. With UN Secretary General Antonio… Read more »
