G7 confirms its commitment to the political process in Syria in line with UNSCR 2254

The Group of Seven (G7)’s foreign ministers issued a statement, confirming their commitment to the political process in Syria and enhancing justice and accountability in line with the UN Security Council Resolution 2254, and fully supporting the mandate of UN envoy to Syria Geir Pedersen.

G7’s statement came after the meeting of the foreign ministers of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States of America, and the High Representative of the European Union, in the Capri Island, Italy, on Friday 19 April 2024.

The statement said: “The normalization, reconstruction, and lifting of sanctions would only be considered in the framework of inclusive, incredible, and sustainable political process in line with the UNSCR 2254.”

The statement added: “The Assad regime should meaningfully participate in the UN-facilitated political process to achieve a peaceful solution to the crisis and national reconciliation.”

The statement condemned “Assad regime’s use of chemical weapons in Syria, and it has to comply with its commitments under UNSCR 2118, and the Chemical Weapons Convention and to eliminate its chemical weapons programme completely and verifiably.”

The statement urged to “immediately release the Syrian detainees and all civilians arbitrarily detained and reveal the fate of forcibly disappeared. The statement emphasized its support for the work of organizations such as such as the Commission of Inquiry on Syria and the International Independent and Impartial Mechanism which document the crimes committed in Syria.”

The statement stressed that “G7 will continue to support the Syrian people through humanitarian aid to meet their needs, including early recovery assistance and measures enhancing resilience, and call on the Assad regime to facilitate unhindered cross-border humanitarian aid access to all Syrians.”

The G7 said at the conclusion of the statement: “The Eighth Brussels Conference on the Future of Syria and the Region, which is set to be held at the end of this April, is important to maintain a high level of engagement and mobilization of the international community in this regard.”
