EU to put more pressure on Syria - Borrell

European Union's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said on Tuesday that the bloc "will continue to exert maximum pressure on" Syrian authorities.

Speaking at the fourth Brussels Conference on "Supporting the future of Syria and the region," he added that additional sanctions could be some of the measures aimed "to force" Damascus into "political dialogue with all the forces in the country."

Over the next year and a half, the EU institutions will allocate €2.3 billion in humanitarian aid to Syria and to countries that have accepted refugees from the war-torn country, Borrell also announced.
