RABAT, October 8. /TASS/. A solution to the Syrian problem is to have a comprehensive character and be implemented with observance of Syria’s unity and sovereignty, the foreign ministers of the 5+5 Dialogue, which brings together ten states of western Mediterranean, said in a final statement on Wednesday after their meeting in Morocco’s Tangier.
The 5+5 Dialogue embraces five countries of southern Europe, namely Italy, Spain, Malta, Portugal and France, and five Maghreb countries, or Algeria, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco and Tunisia.
The statement stresses that the Syrian problem should be addressed from all dimensions at once - in humanitarian, security and political areas - in line with the Geneva-1 communique and observing Syria’s unity and sovereignty.
The ministers agreed that Syria was facing a very difficult situation and condemned violence against civilian population.
The 5+5 Dialogue foreign ministers expressed support to efforts taken by United Nations special envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura and called to invigorate "inclusive, viable and trustworthy political process" that would involve all Syrian parties concerned and key regional and international forces.
Apart from that, participants in the Tangier meeting called on the international community to expand assistance to countries receiving Syrian refugees and displaced persons.
