Penrose Wants Government To Support Sanctions On Russia Over Syria

Written 3 years ago by Newsroom

Labour TD Willie Penrose is calling on the Foreign Affairs Minister to strongly condemn Russia for their support of Syrian forces bombarding Alleppo.

Speaking in the Dáil, the Longford Westmeath TD also urged Charlie Flanagan to support the extension of sanctions towards Russia.

The issue was discussed by European leaders in Brussels last week, with many supporting the idea of sanctions due to the Russian influence in the Syrian conflict.

Deputy Penrose wants to see a stronger Irish approach.
