BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:40 P.M.) – The EU won’t provide money to aid Syria reconstruction unless there is a political process underway, EU High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini said at the EU-UN Syria conference in Brussels, Wednesday.

Mogherini explained why the EU is pushing for a political process, rather than a military one to end the conflict in Syria: “Military victory could come. And we see some actors pursuing that kind of strategy, but what next? What happens the month after that? Two months after that? One year after that?”

She also reiterated her support for the Iran nuclear pact and spoke about Macron’s recent comments on the deal, saying: “President Macron underlined once again that all of Europe is completely behind the complete implementation of the [Iran] deal and that on the table there is the question of some additional [clauses], without touching a deal that exists.”

During the press conference, UN Special Envoy Staffan de Mistura commented on last week’s tensions at the UN over Syria: “One week ago we were on the brink of a very serious crisis. It was the closest to what one could say was a very tense Cold War rhetoric and even military activity. Thank god it was avoided, thanks to mature thinking and mature decision.”

And just where will they get the £200-£300 billion estimated to rebuild Syria ? No doubt by robbing the citizen slaves of the combined EU nations.

It wouldn’t be a gift, it would be a loan. The EU would make 200-300 euro out of rebuilding a nation they helped destroy–as was the case in Iraq.

China and Russia will help Syria rebuild. It’s already been decided.

@dank fur kopf, reiß doch deinen Kop ab und steck ihn dir in den Arsch. Wir haben mit dem Krieg in Syrien und Iraq nix zu tun gehabt.

Geh nach London und Washington und halte da deinen Hut auf.

Wir haben unser Land allein aufgebaut, warum sollten wir für Lau geben?

The EU population is no fool and do not want to pay for Your war. Go and stand with Your hat for donations at: the US, UK, Turkey, France, the Bani Saud and Qatar. They made war on Syria.

p.s. Germany was also totally bombed and the Germans build their country up alone. Germany accepted Syrian draft dodgers at great costs – so that they did not become martyrs and come back better trained.
That is enough contribution for reconstruction.

After being a staunch opponent of immigration, Merkel opened the flood gates of immigrants – on behalf of all Eu nations. Then she accepted ONLY Syrians – the best qualified workers (blue-eyed folks, BTW) – and wanted to force the rest of EU to swallow the “less interesting” immigrants.

Just guessing but I’d bet this is a left handed attempt at Assad must go. All this BS smells of deception. EU wants to keep the nuke deal with Iran, but the US Poodle wants side clauses added? Right…Why would Iran even talk over such c**p with them? Then there is ‘some want a military solution to Syria’…yeah, we know who, too. Who has been asking for negotiation for 3 years now? It wasn’t the west. Their idea of a solution is Assad gone and Syria imitating Libya. Not to mention that any ‘help’ would have a indebted slave aspect… Read more »

Yes the US want the EU to pay for their oil war on Syria. Like they did before on other occasions. And the EU population does not want it. The US lives and makes war from printing money and using it as determined in Breton Wood and then changed several time for the US advantage. The more unrest and turmoil in the EU population the better. Because the US want to dissolve the EU – EU has a big economy and an €uro that competes with their $ollar. p.s. You can see that it is US agenda when the US… Read more »

Because the Military Industrial complex would not have been happy and the Saudi’s /EU have paid their protection money now to the US/UK.

It is now the turn for overpriced EU/US construction companies to extort cash from the EU/US taxpayer 🙂

You seem to forget that these events were triggered by Saudi pay to play on the Clinton’s Foundation. UK followed as the Yankee’s poodle as usual.
UK was never anything else than the US Trojan horse in the EU.
Hopefully, there is Brexit.
DeGaulle was right when he vetoed UK’s entry twice.

7 years ago Syria was not completely destroyed yet. They (MIL) had to get some new income lined up. Now the US and their NATO dogs (EU) see the writing on the wall and don’t want to lose the other part of the plan…run it through the IMF, demand austerity, sell bidding rights to western companies at 2x cost and get Syrian oil for pennies for near eternity. How long before Greece has it’s ‘loan’ paid off?…and they are Europeans.

Sorry EU, but the Syrian Government has already stated that no actor involved in aggression against the Syrian people will be allowed to participate in the rebuilding process. No contracts will be given to aggressor states, so no aggressor state will profit from their misadventures.

The EU is no actor in the Syrian war. It was an oil war on who controls the pipelines and sells to the EU.

The EU is no interested party and shall give no money to feed companies from China, Iran and Russia.

The US, Bani Saud, UK, Turkey, Qatar will be very pleased to pay for their regime change. Maybe Putin will give them a better share in the EU fossil fuel business in return.

The eurofags doesn’t give anything out of the kindness of their hearts and they certainly won’t pay reparations for their immense part in the destruction of a UN member state. There are obvious strings attached, (politically “Assad must go” and economic ones).

Syria won’t award these cowards for their thuggery. Syria will be rebuilt by her friends, not her enemies.

The EU was not part of the Syrian oil war. And only the defeated pay reparations. The “Assad must go” narrative proved that the US are behind all this and want to economically plunder the EU just like they want to plunder Syria.

p.s. Or do You take sheltering Syrian draft dodgers for an indicator of defeat?
