Löfven: Syrian regime should be held responsible for war crimes
0:57 min

Sweden’s Prime Minister Stefan Löfven (S) expressed his concerns about the ongoing war in Syria at a meeting of EU leaders in Brussels.

At this year’s summit with heads of state, the assault on and evacuation of civilians in Aleppo and war in Syria were major talking points.

“We must put an end to this hell,” Löfven said. “Frankly, it is disgraceful that the international community has not taken action.”

Löfven urged the EU to help evacuate civilians from the worst combat areas and said the Syrian regime should ultimately be held responsible for their actions.

The summit’s agenda also covered the refugee crisis, sanctions against Russia, and Brexit.
