The European Union and the United Nations will co-chair the Brussels II Conference on Supporting the Future of Syria and the Region on 24-25 April, in Brussels.

The Conference will gather more than 85 delegations from the international community, including the regional players, around three objectives:

  • reaffirm EU and international support to a political solution to the Syria conflict, consolidating global support for efforts to broker a political solution within the UN-led intra-Syrian talks in Geneva
  • enhance support and improve conditions to allow for a principled international response to the humanitarian needs generated by the conflict
  • maintain international engagement in delivering assistance to the people of Syria, both inside Syria and in the neighbouring countries
