Syria slams EU exclusionist policies as 'inhuman, immoral'
Syria condemns the EU's policies of excluding the country from the Brussels conference while emphasizing that attempts to undermine its stances have failed both militarily and politically.
The European Union chose to exclude Syria from the conference held in Brussels and devoted primarily to Syria so that the truth of its bankrupt goals and policies would not be revealed as a result of the inhumane and immoral coercive measures that the Syrian people face, according to a source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry.
The source stressed that the meeting's organizers invited only their corrupt tools who are allied with Daesh, Jabhat al-Nusra, and other terrorist organizations that oppose the will of the Syrian people and their vital interests, demanding that refugees not be allowed to return to their homeland and humanitarian aid not be provided to victims of terrorism and the earthquake.
According to the source, Syria was successful in resisting the terrorist war's objectives and attempts to interfere in its domestic affairs.
Syria admits that attempts to undermine its stances have failed both militarily and politically, according to the source. "Syria, which has withstood mercenaries and terrorists," the source continued, "is determined today to work with its Arab brothers, friends, and all good forces in the world to consolidate its victories and overcome the consequences of the economic blockade on it."
High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said in his speech at the Brussels conference, "Here we are, again, in Brussels, for the seventh year, discussing the needs and pledging further support to the Syrian people," adding that "We are the biggest donor for the Syrian people. And this Conference shows that even in the 13th year of conflict, we continue standing with the Syrian people, whatever else is going [on] in our neighborhood – be it in the east or in the south."

However, it is worth re-emphasizing that the conference excluded Syria and did not send aid to the country that they claim is suffering from the Syrian government's violations and "not a result of our sanctions."
