Marine Le Pen, leader of the French National Front Party and Presidential hopeful, has highlighted that the European Union is responsible for the war in Syria.
“You’ve done everything to bring down the government of Syria, throwing the country into a terrible civil war, while accusing Russia which is actually fighting ISIS,” she said while addressing the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Wednesday.
She then highlighted it was the policies of the European Union and United States who have caused the war.
“You cannot hide your responsibility […] for plunging this part of the world into an absolutely monstrous chaos,” she said.
Le Pen then claimed the Union’s approach towards the refugee crisis in Europe is “irresponsible”.
“No real measures are taken to curb the crisis. Your irresponsible policy, on the contrary, brings us more and more economic migrants,” she said.
