EU hosts high-level ministerial event on Syria event in New York

High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini and Commissioner Christos Stylianides hosted a new edition of the traditional ministerial meeting on Syria in the margins on the 74th session of the UN General Assembly. The meeting was an opportunity to reaffirm the EU’s support to find a political solution that opens the way towards a united, independent, democratic and inclusive Syria. High Representative/Vice-President Mogherini said: “Today we have, maybe for the first time after so many conferences that we have organised on Syria, some encouraging news on the political track. Today is not a day of just acknowledging the good work done but also of recommitting collectively on what needs to be done next. I hope this commitment will allow the UN to fulfil this important task in the weeks ahead.” Audio-visual coverage is available online, together with the opening and concluding remarks.
