Martin Schulz, the leader of Germany’s center-left Social Democrats, said Sunday, April 9 that finding a solution to the war in Syria must become the international community’s top priority and called for Europe to take “an active role” in resolving the conflict. Schulz, who is hoping to unseat long-time German leader Angela Merkel in September’s general election, dismissed the idea of armed intervention in Syria, however. “We need a diplomatic solution to the conflict, not bombs or a further escalation,” he said.
