'Monstrous' violence in Syria as government excludes Aleppo from truce | Reuters

BEIRUT Syria called local truces near Damascus and in a northern province on Friday but no halt to combat on the main battlefield in Aleppo, after a surge in fighting the United Nations said showed "monstrous disregard" for civilian lives. A new "regime of calm" would begin from 1:00 a.m. on Saturday and last one day in the capital's eastern Ghouta suburb and three days in the northern countryside of the coastal province of Latakia, the army said in a statement. #Islam #France #Russia #Europe #Iran #Turkey

UNITED NATIONS United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Thursday urged Russia and the United States to exert pressure on Syria's warring parties to stop fighting and ensure a credible investigation of air strikes that destroyed an Aleppo hospital. "Instead of bombing civilian areas, all Syrian parties must renew their focus on a political process," Ban's spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in a statement.

Two EU sources familiar with the bloc's latest thinking on a possible Brexit told Reuters on Thursday there was no appetite to grant any extension of the two years provided by the EU's Lisbon Treaty for negotiating a withdrawal, while any new trade partnership would take many more years to conclude #United States #India #France #Europe #United Kingdom #Hungary #article
