BERLIN, (SANA)_President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz slammed France and Britain for raising debate again over the need for lifting the ban on sending weapons to the Syrian opposition.
AFP quoted Schulz as saying in an interview with the German TV N24, ''I wish that the same mistake won't be repeated at the EU again, I mean that some countries speak individually before others.''
''The issue of lifting the ban should be discussed carefully to determine whether it could achieve the goal of establishing a democratic government,'' he added.
Schulz considered that the German Chancellor Angela Merkel is not at fault about the issue.
