The EU is discussing the introduction of new sanctions against Syria

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) –¬†Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Bloch said at the end of the EU Council meeting that the foreign ministers of 28 EU member states had discussed the introduction of new restrictive measures against the Syrian authorities.

“Sanctions against Syria – certainly, other sanctions were not discussed,” he said, answering a question about whether the EU is considering new measures of pressure on other countries.

Earlier in the Russian Foreign Ministry said that the sanctions of the US and the EU hinder the restoration of Syria.

On April 15, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said that new anti-Russian sanctions would affect companies related to Syrian President Bashar Assad.
