Pax Christi Germany calls for reconciliation in Syria

Pax Christi Germany issued a press release to commemorate the beginning of the Syrian war five years ago. The section denounces the international community’s failure to broker a diplomatic solution, from 2012 to 2014. It also asserts that the refugee crisis coincided with Germany’s decision to cease monetary contributions to UNHRC’s refugee service.

Pax Christi Germany calls on the German government to change their policy and to support a multi-religious and multi-ethnic reconciliation process among the diverse Syrian population.
