The Foreign Minister continued: “The situation in Idlib proves the need to bring together all parties to the conflict, especially the peaceful and democratic forces of the Syrian opposition, while at the same time ending any further support for armed groups. The Astana Process, now continuing in Ankara, must also be brought together with existing UN initiatives. In order to finally end the terrible war in Syria and alleviate the suffering, the federal government must now participate in comprehensive reconstruction programs without preconditions. It is a scandal that instead of questionable initiatives such as the ‘Syria Recovery Trust Fund’ financed with funds from the Stabilization Fund of the Foreign Office are fully intransparent opposition groups. The people of Syria now need a comprehensive aid program for the whole country to eliminate the damage of the war and an end to the sanctions. “
