Important resolution on Syria in the UN

“The Government is deeply concerned about the situation in Syria. It is both dangerous and unacceptable, and is looking more and more like a civil war. This is underscored by the latest, unconfirmed reports of new attacks in Homs,” said Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.

Efforts continue to get a resolution on Syria passed in the UN Security Council, and there will be new meetings today.

“It is now urgent for the international community to take a common stance on the situation in Syria. Norway supports the Arab League’s peace plan for Syria, and we hope that the members of the Security Council, particularly the permanent members, will soon endorse the plan. This plan appears to be the most realistic means of finding a political solution to the conflict,” said Mr Støre.

Foreign Minister Støre will discuss the situation in Syria with his colleagues and representatives from the other Nordic countries, Germany and Russia in the margins of the foreign ministers’ meeting of the Council of the Baltic Sea States in Hamburg on 5 February.
