German FM: Ceasefire in Syria still fragile

The ceasefire in Syria is still fragile and the humanitarian situation in the field is “catastrophic,” Germany’s Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said during the G20 Summit in Bonn on Friday.

Gabriel said he endorses a political solution to the Syrian civil war and noted that it was “important” that Moscow supports political efforts as a means of conflict resolution. He went on to tell Russia that it is very important that they influence the Assad government since he believes “they cannot hold serious talks.”
