A statement on the conflict in Syria continuing for 10 years
Today marks ten years of the conflict in Syria. Countless violations of human rights and international humanitarian law have caused enormous suffering. Around 60 % of the Syrian population lacks food security. 5.6 million Syrians are refugees, and 6.2 million people are displaced within Syria.
Finland strongly calls on the parties of the conflict for a political resolution.
