Latvia allocates €110,000 to support stability in Syria

The Foreign Ministry will allocate €110,000 for stabilization measures in Syria, the government decided on Tuesday.

€100,000 will be allocated to the international coalition against Daesh to help clear mines in the country, while a further €10,000 will be allocated to the UN's International Mechanism concerning Syria.

This past January, Latvia received a request from the new U.S. presidential administration to expand its involvement in the international coalition against the Islamic State.

The Latvian Foreign Ministry points out that it has always supported the international community's efforts to halt the violence in Syria, as well as hold accountable all of those who have committed war crimes and crimes against humanity in the country.

The Latvian foreign minister expressed the support for setting up the UN's International Mechanism concerning Syria this past February.
