LUXEMBOURG (Reuters) - The United Nations Security Council should keep pushing for a ceasefire in Syria, Dutch foreign minister Stef Blok said on Monday.

“We have to keep pushing to get a ceasefire and humanitarian aid through the Security Council and eventually a peace process,” Blok told reporters before a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Luxembourg.

“The only solution is a peace process through the UN Security Council,” Blok added.
