Belgium: EU must increase pressure on Russia — German FM in Brussels

In order to solve the Syrian issue, the EU has to increase pressure on Russia and to make it change its behavior, stated German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas at a joint press conference alongside the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker in Brussels, Friday. Commenting on the suspected use of chemical weapons in Syria, Maas said that Russia allegedly protects Bashar Assad by... Еще imposing vetoes at the UN Security Council and blocking international sanctions on Damascus. He added that «persuading Russia to behave differently is a precondition for a solution to the Syrian conflict.» At the same time, Maas stressed that «Russia is needed to solve the Syrian conflict. And that is why we have always been of the opinion that we cannot completely end the dialogue with Russia.»
