EU wants to give a push to UN-led peace process after US-led Syria strikes – Mogherini

EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini has said that the bloc wants to use a major meeting on Syria next week to give impetus to UN peace moves following US-led airstrikes on the country. “There is the need to give a push to the UN-led process,” AP quoted Mogerhini as saying on Monday. Speaking before chairing talks among EU foreign ministers in Luxembourg, she said that “people are suffering, people are dying, and I think the whole international community has to take responsibility for this.” Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok said: “We should keep on pushing for a solution through the UN Security Council. It’s the only way forward.” On April 24-25, a Syria donor conference will be held in Brussels, and more than 70 delegations are expected to attend.
