"The renewed military offensive in Idlib by the Syrian regime and its backers, causing enormous human suffering, is unacceptable. The European Council has called on all parties to put in place a sustainable ceasefire, guarantee the protection of civilians and fully implement their commitments under the Sochi Memorandum of 17 September 2018," Berger also said.
