Call for Removal of Sanctions on Syria

Iran’s Ambassador to the United Nations Majid Takht-Ravanchi called for the immediate removal of US sanctions against the Syrian nation.
Speaking at a meeting of the UN Security Council on political developments in Syria on Wednesday, Takht-Ravanchi said the “political, unlawful and inhumane” US sanctions imposed against Syria and some other countries are imposed at a time when Syrians are suffering badly from terrorist acts and the coronavirus pandemic, Tasnim News Agency reported. 
“By occupying parts of Syria, the US continues to violate the territorial integrity of the Arab country. In fact, the US is pursuing its illegitimate geopolitical interests, including by shielding and supporting certain terrorist groups. All such acts are in material breach of international law and must come to an end immediately,” he said.
Takht-Ravanchi noted that the imposition of unilateral sanctions on the Syrian people is another unlawful act by the United States and some other countries.
“While the Syrians are seriously suffering from terrorist acts and the Covid-19 pandemic, such inhumane sanctions are simply adding insult to injury by targeting the most vulnerable people the most,” he said.
