Foreign Ministry: The statements of European Union officials regarding the easing of the sanctions imposed on Syria do not rise to the real level of work necessary to lift these sanctions

Syria has affirmed that the statements made by some European Union officials regarding the call to alleviate the unlawful sanctions imposed on the Syrian people do not rise to the level of real and effective action to raise them.

Syria has noted that these statements will not relieve these countries of responsibility for the impact of these sanctions in hampering efforts aimed at providing means and capabilities to the health infrastructure to face the Corona epidemic.

 

An official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said in a statement to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) on April 7, that the statements made by some European Union officials regarding the call to reduce unilateral and unlawful sanctions imposed on the Syrian people are still within the framework of political action and have not yet lived up to the level of real and actual action to raise these sanctions.

The source added that the European Union is a major partner in the siege of Syria so far, despite the risks posed by the spread of the Corona epidemic at this stage.

The source added that Syria, whose people have suffered from these unjust sanctions, joins countries that stress the importance of immediate and unconditional lifting of all sanctions, especially for bank transfers, which were imposed by the United States and the European Union for political goals in a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law and the sanctity of human life and the most basic rights Human.

The source said: “ Syria also confirms that these statements will not absolve European officials from responsibility regarding the impact of these sanctions in hampering efforts aimed at providing the means, capabilities and health infrastructure needed to address the Corona epidemic.”

The source said: “Syria calls on countries that raise the human rights logo falsely to abandon these policies that they have proven unsuccessful and unified with the international community in its efforts to save humanity from this epidemic that has so far killed tensof thousands of innocent people throughout the world.”
