Jamous: European Union Must Shoulder Its Responsibilities and Impose A No-Fly Zone In Syria

Badr Jamous, Secretary General of the Syrian Coalition, calls on the European Union to assume its responsibilities towards civilians in Syria and impose a no-fly zone to protect civilians from barrel bombs dropped by regime forces on Syrian cities. Jamous’s calls were made during a meeting with the representative of the EU delegation to Turkey and the Finnish ambassador. Jamous also calls for increasing the support for the Syrian refugees and the Syrian interim government. The Finnish ambassador said that his country would increase its support for the Syrians in the educational field and would provide scholarships for them. He also denounced Assad’s intention to run for re-election despite the crimes, displacement and destruction he caused in Syria.” (Source: Syrian Coalition)
