The rise in terrorism and the refugee crisis are the byproduct of Europea’s "past mistakes" and "wrong policies" in Syria which helped extremist groups gain foothold and brought Middle East wars to Europe's doorstep, says a former foreign minister.
"What happened in Iraq should have been a lesson. We expected Europe to fight terrorism, but France and Britain were talking only of government change in Syria.
