Rosenthal: suspend EU projects in Syria
Europe should suspend 130 million euros in ongoing projects in Syria because of the unrest gripping the country.
Dutch Foreign Minister Uri Rosenthal made his remarks in an interview on the current affairs television programme
The minister argued that as long as the violence continues and reforms are not being implemented all projects involving the Syrian government should be suspended. He also posited that it’s obvious that discussions with the EU on an association agreement should be suspended as well.
Mr Rosenthal said that Europe should do anything within its power to put maximum pressure on Syria.
