The Secretary General of the Council of Europe Thorbjorn Jagland has called the conflict in Syria is the largest by its negative effects since the Second world war. He said this during the Ministerial meeting of the UN Council on human rights, reports “TASS”.

“Nowhere have the consequences been so dire as in Syria, where the conflict escalated into the worst disaster in human rights for the entire period after the Second world war,” said Thorbjorn Jagland.

He also noted that the conflict led to mass displacement and only in the last two years, the EU drove a half million refugees and other migrants.

“The world’s leading powers should make every effort to ensure peace on the planet. It is written in black and white in article 24 of the UN Charter,” – said the head of the Council of Europe.
