| September 26, 2019

High Representative/Vice President Federica Mogherini (pictured) 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 (25 September) we have, maybe for the first time after so many conferences that we have organized 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 fulfill this important task in the weeks ahead.”
