from Pax Christi International
The European Council for Foreign Relations of the European Union met on 14 May 2012 in Brussels and is discussing the situation in Syria.
On 12 May 2012, Marie Dennis and Bishop Kevin Dowling, Co-Presidents of Pax Christi International, forwarded a letter addressed to H.E. Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy expressing the view that continued militarization of the conflict in Syria should be definitively avoided.
The non-violent opposition movement deserves more support from the EU.
