The European Union is willing to provide for the early recovery in the de-escalation zones and the liberated areas of Syria while continuing to work on and invest in the future of the country, EU High Representative Federica Mogherini said yesterday at a High level event organised by the EU in the margins of UN General Assembly (UNGA).

With a second conference to be held next spring, the EU and the international community will launch the “Brussels Process” that “will put our convening power at the service of the Syrian people”, Mogherini said.

Such work would support the Geneva talks on a political transition, which remain the only viable path towards ending the war and stabilising the country, Mogherini stressed.

The EU is the leading donor supporting Syrians, both inside the country and in the region, with almost €10 billion mobilised for humanitarian, development, economic and stabilisation assistance since the start of the conflict. At the Brussels Conference last April the international community pledged collectively more than $9 billion over two years.
