A statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued this morning said that “Malta joins the international community in expressing grave preoccupation at the widespread violations of human rights and use of force with which the Syrian authorities are confronting civilian protestors seeking democratic change in their country.
The Syrian authorities must take all necessary steps to stop violence, meet the legitimate aspirations of the Syrian people and allow for the introduction of genuine reforms. Malta remains supportive of the EU’s calls for fundamental freedoms to be granted to the Syrian people as well as of its efforts to bring the crisis in Syria to a peaceful end.”
