Permanent Representative of Russia to International Organizations in Vienna denounced the continuation of sanctions against Syria as unacceptable.

Iran PressEurope: Mikhail Ulyanov wrote on Twitter on Friday:

Last month, the United States imposed new sanctions on Syria's legitimate government under Caesar's Law, signed in December 2019 by President Donald Trump.

Under the law, the United States plans to tighten sanctions on Damascus by imposing severe sanctions on Syrian institutions and individuals to prevent cooperation between Syria and its allies in rebuilding the country.
