The UN Special Rapporteur on the Negative Impact of Unilateral Sanctions on Human Rights stressed the illegality of US unilateral sanctions.

Iran PressAmerica: At a meeting of the UN Human Rights Council, Alena Douhan emphasized that unilateral sanctions by the United States and some European countries are illegal.

She called for the lifting of sanctions and the adoption of a specific mechanism to limit the imposition of unilateral sanctions within the framework of the UN Security Council.

Douhan referred to Caesar's law passed by the US Congress in 2019 and added that this law is a clear example of the implementation of sanctions outside the borders of countries.

The Caesar Act came into force on June 1, 2020.

Under this law, the US government can impose sanctions on Syrian institutions and individuals and put them in a tight spot.

The US government is also using the law to strike at Syria's allies in the reconstruction phase.

The United States has targeted Syria with various sanctions since 2011 in support of terrorists.

The crisis in Syria began in 2011 with a massive offensive by terrorist groups backed by Saudi Arabia, the United States and their allies to shift the regional equation in favor of the Zionist regime. 219
