Czech Foreign Ministry calling for a peaceful solution to the conflict in Syria

The Czech Foreign Ministry has adopted a reserved stance on a possible military intervention in Syria. A statement released by the ministry on Wednesday condemns the use of chemical weapons and says the UN inspection team should be given time and space to conclude its mission as thoroughly as possible. The Czech Republic is in favour of a diplomatic and peaceful solution to the conflict in Syria, the statement says, urging the two sides to sign an agreement on a ceasefire and open talks on the country’s political transformation.
