MFA Statement on the renewal of fighting in Aleppo


News about renewed fighting in Aleppo climaxed by Thursday’s attack on local hospital, which left not only several patients including children but also killed the last pediatrician still remaining in the city. This tragedy was a cruel reminder of how fragile the current ceasefire in Syria is.

Czech Republic follows all these developments with grave concern and appeals to all side to the conflict to refrain from aggressive acts that could get the vicious circle of murder rolling once again. We hope that the relative quiet throughout the country will remain and that the Geneva process will be brought to successful conclusion. Czech Republic supports the US-Russian efforts concerning the ceasefire without which the activity of Special Representative de Mistura cannot proceed and the UN Security Council resolution 2254 cannot be implemented.
