The Republic of Angola is deeply concerned about the current situation in Syria. The situation has proved to be truly catastrophic for the population of Syria and the neighboring countries. A lack of food and electricity and the fear of bombs and explosives amid the already destructed cities have become part of the everyday life of thousands of innocent civilians. Millions have had to flee their hometown already, were forced to leave everything behind, while loved ones were ripped away from their lives, never to be seen again. Basic needs, including safety, have become a luxury. Meanwhile the international community had been unable to mediate a political solution. The Republic of Angola expresses its disappointment at the lack of political will on the part of key stakeholders in the pursuit of an effective, real and lasting solution to end the war. The conflict has already claimed the lives of many innocent people and it has displaced millions of persons and refugees and caused a humanitarian catastrophe. What is necessary to unite us? Do we need another Paris? Another Ankara? Should more cities fall, before we finally wake up and act as one to really make a change? The time has come to stop pursuing individual goals in this conflict and to reach a consensus to make a better world. The Republic of Angola believes that the first step to end the horrors in Syria is for the International community to unite and cooperate. This is the way to end this conflict, the answer to peace lays in diplomacy. As a start the Republic of Angola proposes to cooperate more efficiently and to relaunch the initiative of the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General of the UN, Staffan de Mistura, to bring the Syrian Government and the opposition closer together. It is time to create the necessary stability as a base for the formation of an inclusive transitional government and the drafting of a new constitution. Eventually this will allow for elections based on the new Magna Charta to bring peace and stability to Syria. Violence is not the answer in the modern world, it only leads to more displaced refugees and more horrors against innocent civilizations. Neither drone strikes nor air force power will lead to peace. Humanitarian and human right workers already risk their lives to save Syrians, in what place are we to make it even worse? Not violence, but a political diplomatic solution is the way out of the crisis and the course we should follow. It is now firstly important that we as an international community form our policies in cooperation with each other. If we unite and work together, we will possess the power to make the conflicting parties unite and to bring peace back to Syria as well.
