Despite the current refugee crisis, the overwhelming majority of Syrians remain in their country. As the situation continues to deteriorate, in addition to providing immediate material and food aid and supporting schools and farmers, Czech NGO People in Need supports the Syrian communities in building resilience. The 'Cash for Work' programme funded by the European Commission's Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department (ECHO) has been directly implemented in the Syrian provinces of Aleppo and Idleb since April 2015. Through this programme, more than 1 930 families have been able to earn a living to provide food and clothing to their families, and pay for rent.
The European Commission funds humanitarian projects both inside Syria and in neighbouring countries. Read more about the Syria crisis bit.ly/1aZCFbH
The conviction of former President Mohamed Nasheed for charges under anti-terrorist legislation raises very serious questions about due process of law and risks undermining people's trust in the independence of the judiciary.
La condamnation de l'ancien président, M. Mohamed Nasheed, reconnu coupable d'avoir contrevenu à la législation antiterroriste, suscite de très sérieux doutes quant au respect du droit et risque d'ébranler la confiance des citoyens dans l'indépendance du système judiciaire.
Apologies for the delay, it has been a long Council. We discussed many different and important things. Let me say that it was also a very good Council, extremely constructive and representing very much united positions of the Member States on all the issues we discussed.
Mr Prime Minister, it is a pleasure to welcome you here in Brussels, together with the Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, together with the Delegation of your government for the second meeting of our Association Council that just finished the plenary, the formal part.
We were late because the meeting was extremely productive, frank, detailed. We tackled all the different issues we had on our agenda, in a very, I think, exhaustive way which is always a good sign.
