(Syrian conflict) EU ‘understands’ objectives in airstrikes

World | 16 Apr 2018 6:59 pm

The European Union said it "understands” the need for the coordinated U.S, French and British airstrikes against Syrian military targets over the weekend following the suspected April 7 chemical attack in Douma, a town just outside Damascus.

The 28 EU foreign ministers said in a joint statement that the strike was executed with "the sole objective to prevent further use of chemical weapons and chemical substances as weapons by the Syrian regime to kill its own people.”

The 28 said the current situation should now be used to turn to political negotiations and insisted that "there can be no military solution to the Syrian conflict.” -AP
