Vice-President of the Syrian Opposition Coalition, Ruba Habboush, has commended the European Union’s unwavering stance on the Assad regime, emphasizing that there are still voices advocating for the Syrian people’s right to attain freedom and dignity in accordance with UN resolutions.
Habboush highlighted the European Union’s commitment to holding accountable those responsible for the atrocities committed in Syria over the past years. She also praised their dedication to uncovering the fate of detainees and missing persons held in the regime’s prisons. This commitment aligns with the values of justice and freedom, and represents a crucial step towards a political solution in Syria. Moreover, it signifies an end to the ongoing series of terror endured by Syrians as a result of the Assad regime’s acts of terrorism since 2011.
During the seventh conference on “Supporting the Future of Syria and the Region” in Brussels, Belgium, held on Thursday, the European Union reiterated its position on the Assad regime. Josep Borrell, the Union’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, affirmed that there are no conditions for the European Union to alter its policy towards the Assad regime. He further stated that all member states within the EU are in agreement, and that sanctions against the regime have recently intensified and will continue to do so.
Borrell emphasized the European Union’s commitment to supporting efforts aimed at ensuring accountability for the crimes committed during the war waged by the Assad regime against the Syrian people 12 years ago. Additionally, he made it clear that the EU will not establish diplomatic relations with the regime or lift sanctions. (Source: SOC’s Media Department)
