“The violence discredit the promises made by the Syrian regime and undermine its commitment to carry out reforms. The cruel repression is incompatible with dialogue,”.
“The opposition should play a key role in this dialogue,” said the head of European diplomacy.
Friday, 13 people died in clashes between government troops and demonstrators in Syria, reported Reuters, referring to non-governmental human rights.
Ashton called the Syrian government to “allow the arrival of emergency independent observers, foreign journalists and representatives of humanitarian agencies.”
