RUSSIA, IRAN MUST HELP END ‘MASSACRE’ IN SYRIA ENCLAVE: BERLIN
Germany Wednesday urged Russia and Iran to push the Syrian regime to end the airstrikes on rebel-held Eastern Ghouta, noting that the two had pledged to be guarantors of peace in Syria.
“One has to ask where is Russia, where is Iran, which had pledged in Astana to guarantee a ceasefire also in Eastern Ghouta,” Steffen Seibert said, spokesman for Chancellor Angela Merkel, referring to peace talks in the Kazakh capital.
“Without the support of these two allies, Assad’s regime would not be where it is today, and undoubtedly, without this support, this regime would have to show more readiness to negotiate in the UN [peace] process,” the German government spokesman added.
“We demand that the Assad regime immediately end the massacre in Ghouta and allow in humanitarian aid as well as medical evacuation. We also demand that the backers of the Assad regime use their strong influence to achieve this end,” Seibert said.
