Damascus, Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said Wednesday that the EU, with its applied policy, is only a continuation of colonialism, but in a modern way, reiterating that statements of some EU officials on its role and conditions in the reconstruction process clearly indicate misunderstanding of what is going on in Syria.
In a statement recited by Assistant Foreign and Expatiates Minister, Ayman Sousan, the Ministry said that some EU officials occasionally release statements about the EU role and basic conditions regarding the reconstruction process and relations with Syria, affirming that repeating those statements which are built on the illusions and dreams of EU officials clearly indicate their misunderstanding of what is going on in Syrian and the region.
The statement added that, for Syria, the EU institution with its applied policy is only a continuation of colonialism, but Syria’s view towards the EU has been based on true experiences that Syria has passed through with the EU before the war and that the terrorist war came to prove them.
It pointed out that what the EU had presented for Syria has never been donations or offers, but loans that were paid periodically from the money of the Syrian people, adding that all the facilities which Syria has contracted with the EU before the war in the field of electricity and health have been stopped due to the EU blockade and sanctions on Syria which negatively affect the Syria citizen and caused the increase of fatality rate.
The statement stressed that the EU has departed Syria just as colonialism did and it won’t return under any name, as neither a political process satisfies them nor elections fulfil their dreams.
It added that if there are conditions to be laid, then Syria is which lays them, asserting that the only binding condition for any side is the return to Syria mainly through the gate of Syrian sovereignty and interests.
The statement concluded by asserting that the EU officials should not waste their time in drafting statements which do not carry except their illusions and dreams, as for Syria, the EU policy and the policy of Daesh are two sides for the same coin, which is the US coin.
