"3 million people need help, 6 million are displaced within the country, 3 million are in areas that are difficult or impossible to access even when it comes to providing medical assistance and 5.5 million people are fled to countries in their neighbourhood", MEP Tonino Picula emphasized in his speech at the plenary session in Strasbourg.
"This conflict is 8 years old and we still cannot see the solution on the horizon", Picula pointed out.
"Syria is a political platform for the opposite interests of the world's forces, while Syrian authorities instead of protecting their citizens are doing just the opposite, using the most brutal tools that obviously and repeatedly include chemical weapons. Such methods are absolutely unacceptable", said MEP Picula.
