The Syrian Foreign Ministry described what was published by the page of the US embassy in Damascus, which held the responsibility for the humanitarian crisis in Syria to the regime and not the sanctions, describing it as lies.
In response to what was published by the (closed) American embassy page in Damascus, in which it said that the blame should be placed on the “brutal regime” war and not on the sanctions imposed on it, the Syrian Foreign Ministry said that “it is not strange for what was included in the statement posted on the empty US embassy page in Damascus.” Of lies, in response to the call of the United Nations Special Rapporteur Dohan to lift the sanctions on Syria and consider it the reason for the harsh conditions the Syrians live in. “
An official source in the Syrian Foreign Ministry added that this behavior “confirms the United States’ insistence on the approach of hegemony, arrogance, unipolar control, and only listening to the voices that suit its reckless decisions in the region.”
The State Department said that the US administration should bear “full responsibility for the suffering of Syrians resulting from its support for terrorism and the imposition of unilateral coercive measures that violate international laws and their laws and deprive Syrians of providing the requirements for living and a decent life.”
She added that the results of those policies “amount to crimes against humanity,” and concluded by saying that the UN Special Rapporteur’s call “should mark the beginning of holding the American administration accountable for its crimes against the Syrians before the competent international court.”
