Syria slams fresh US sanctions against Iran

Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry condemned on Sunday the decision of the US administration to slap fresh sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran which are due to enter into effect on November 5.

An official source at the Foreign and Expatriates ministry said in a statement of which SANA received a copy that Syria considers this step to be in line with the US policies aimed at undermining regional peace and security, SANA reported.

The decision, according to the statement reflects the US failure to deliver on its obligations under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action agreed upon between Iran and the P5+1 nations.

The source strongly blasted the US tendency to impose unilateral coercive measures against the countries which refuse to succumb to its diktats in a way that contravenes the UN Charter, international law and the multilateral trade system, and magnifies the humanitarian suffering of nations hit by these sanctions.

The source concluded by reaffirming Syria's solidarity and support for the Iranian government and people, voicing confidence that the new package of sanctions will only make Iran more determined to abort the US unethical policies.
