EU High Representative Catherine Ashton Friday
condemned the recent attacks in Syria in the southern town of Daraa and in
Damascus on Thursday in which 55 people were reported killed.
Wednesday's roadside bomb attack against a convoy of the UN Supervision
Mission in Syria, UNSMIS, was entering Daraa is another demonstration of the
difficult conditions under which the mission operates, she said in a statment.
"The unending wave of violence makes Special Envoy Kofi Annan's mission to
strive for peace and calm all the more difficult. His six point plan is the
only way forward to find a peaceful solution to the crisis in Syria," stressed
the EU foreign policy chief.
Ashton reiterated her concerns about the humanitarian plight of the Syrian
population and called again on the authorities to grant immediate, unimpeded
and full access of humanitarian organisations to all areas of Syria.
