France: Trump will 'bring about a major change' in Syria, NF's General Secretary tells EP

France, Strasbourg
November 22, 2016 at 17:36 GMT +00:00 · Published

General Secretary of the National Front Nicolas Bay stated that the election of US President-elect Donald Trump was an opportunity to "bring about a major change" in the Syria conflict, speaking during a European Parliament plenary session in Strasbourg, Tuesday. He noted that this seemed evident "particularly since he's clearly stated that he'll be associated with the Russians."

Bay went on to state that only Russian and Syrian forces had "effectively combatted the Islamic barbarians" over the past five years, complimenting Trump on recognising his predecessor’s alleged “tremendous responsibility in the emergence of the Islamic State.”

Speaking on Europe’s role in the Syrian conflict, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini stated that the body planned to take part in the economic reconstruction of Syria, but only "once a political transition has begun."
