Parliamentary questions
19 December 2012
E-011605-12
Question for written answer
to the Commission (Vice-President/High Representative)
Rule 117
Diane Dodds (NI)

 Subject:  VP/HR — Persecution of Christians in Syria
 Answer(s) 

With the continuation of the Syrian uprising, there is growing concern from across the Christian world about the increase in the persecution of the Christian minority in Syria.

Christians in Syria have found themselves in a difficult situation: while many have denounced the brutal regime of President al-Assad, few see hope in an alternative government which they fear will be led by Islamists who will curtail their religious freedom.

What will the EU do to ensure that the Christian minority is not targeted in the uprising, and what efforts are being made to end the violence?
