The US embassy in Damascus said, Sunday, that it will continue to impose sanctions in accordance with the “Caesar Act” signed by the US President last year against the regime of the internationally isolated President Bashar al-Assad.
The embassy said – on its official account – that the sanctions were imposed on more than 90 people and entities, for their support of the Assad regime, which has committed atrocities in Syria.
The embassy confirmed that the sanctions will not stop until Damascus takes irreversible steps towards a political solution in line with Security Council Resolution No. 2254, which stipulates the only viable path to achieving a stable future for all Syrians.
It is worth noting that the US Caesar Act entered into force last June. To tighten pressure on the Assad regime to stop the war against the Syrian people, and to impose sanctions on 39 individuals and entities associated with the Syrian regime.
