Letter on Syria

 

On 31 July, 25 leaders of Christian communions and organisations throughout the United States – among them Pax Christi International Co-President Marie Dennis – addressed a letter to US President Barack Obama calling for “an inclusive, negotiated, political solution that provides a foundation for an inclusive society in Syria that protects the rights of all its citizens and for implementing substantive strategies for healing social-psychological and physical wounds”. 

Signatories to this letter further urge the US Administration to refrain from the provision of military assistance to forces involved in the Syrian conflict, and to call on all parties to cease all military activities in Syria and work urgently to de-escalate the crisis, together with other actors in the region and beyond.
