BRUSSELS, European Union High Representative Federica Mogherini met Thursday in Brussels with Nasr Hariri, President of the Syrian Negotiation Commission (SNC) and head of the negotiating team, as well as his delegation.

Mogherini discussed with the SNC delegation the outcome of the second Brussels Conference on Supporting the future of Syria and the Region, which reconfirmed the international community’s support for the UN-led peace process, said a statement released by her office after the meeting.
