(MENAFN - #Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The #EuropeanUnion Tuesday dismissed the announcement by the Syrian regime yesterday that presidential elections will be held in #Syria in June as a farce.

"The High Representative deeply regrets the official declaration by the Syrian authorities that presidential elections will be held in #Syria on 3 June 2014," said Michael Mann, the spokesperson of Catherine Ashton, in a statement this evening.

The statement underlined that EU position "that any elections in #Syria should only take place within the framework of the Geneva Communique of 2012.

"Electins organised by the regime outside this framework, conducted in the midst of conflict, only in regime-controlled areas and with millions of Syrians displaced from their homes would ignore the basic principles of democracy, be devoid of credibility, and undermine all efforts to reach a political solution," it stressed.


Ashton reiterated her call on all parties to stop all violence and human rights abuses and to declare their intention to re-engage in the next rounds of Geneva II peace talks based on the Geneva Communique under conditions specified by the Joint Special Representative Lakhdar Brahimi.
