Dr Harry Hagopian, Middle East North Africa consultant to the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales, on the seven-day Syria ceasefire brokered by the US and Russia. "You do not repair a wall by putting a plaster on it, you do it by putting a proper coating and cement on it. You need to look at the root causes of the conflict and not just say 'oh well, we'll have a ceasefire and send a few trucks here and there for food, for drink and for medicine'." #Syria #Russia #USA
