Syria – Violations of the truce (March 9, 2017)


France condemns the bombing, notably of two hospitals, carried out by the regime over the last few days, especially in Eastern Ghouta and the Hama area.

These repeated attacks constitute violations of the truce.

In order to ensure the continuation of credible negotiations in the weeks to come, the cessation of hostilities must be upheld and full, safe, unconditional and unimpeded humanitarian access to all populations in need must be guaranteed. We call on the regime’s supporters to put pressure on the regime in this regard.

The only way to achieve lasting peace is through a political solution. The road map for the negotiations, collectively approved by the international community is clear: the Geneva Communiqué and UNSCR 2254.
