Syria: AD supports peacekeeping mission proposal

Alternattiva Demokratika – The Green Party is supporting the Arab League resolution calling for a joint Arab-UN peacekeeping mission to end the brutality of Assad’s regime in Syria. 

Prof. Arnold Cassola, AD spokesperson on EU and International Affairs, said: “The Maltese government has done well to speak openly about the urgent necessity for Bashar al-Assad to stop the killing of his own people and to give up power in order to allow a democratic government to take over in the country.  The Maltese Foreign Minister should now meet the Russian and Chinese Ambassadors in Malta and express the concern of the Maltese people at the veto being exercised by their two governments.  The more they weild the veto, the more innocent Syrian blood will they have on their hands”.

Michael Briguglio, AD Chairperson said: “Being so-called neutral in such an issue is not an option. The European Union should exert more pressure for regime change in Syria, towards democratic governance in support of democratic forces of opposition”.
