The European Union (EU) on Friday said that the Syrian regime did not fulfill its obligations.
The spokesperson for Catherine Ashton, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Michael Mann said Friday that "the Syrian government was not fulfilling its obligations".
The Syrian government pledged to withdraw its troops from cities but has failed to do so, Mann indicated.
We are deeply concerned by the violence in Syria and hope that the situation there would change with the arrival of UN observers, Mann stressed.
Meanwhile, Kristalina Georgieva, Commissioner responsible for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, condemned on Friday the killing of Muhammad Hadra, an aid worker with the Syrian Red Crescent Aid Society, in Damascus' Duma district and called on the Syrian government to help the aid workers reach regions where clashes were taking place and take under protection their lives.
