Syria condemns US reimposition of economic sanctions on Iran

Tehran, Syria reiterated its full solidarity with Iran in the face of the hostile policies of the US administration which reimposed economic sanctions on Iran.

Syria strongly condemns the US decision to reimpose sanctions on Iran, and that such unilateral and illegal acts prove this administration's arrogant and despotic tendencies, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) quoted an official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry as saying.

The source affirmed that Syria reiterates its full support for Iran against hostile US policies, asserting that Syria is confident that the Iranian leadership, government, and people will be able to overcome all the repercussions of such measures.

After Washington's May 8 exit from the landmark Iran Deal formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the US gave 90 to 180 wind-down period to other countries before it starts reimposing oil sanctions on Tehran on November 4.
