Syria strongly condemned the decision of the Council of the European Union (EU) to extend the unilaterally-imposed restrictive measures against it for another year.
In its decision issued last Thursday, the Council of the European Union extended sanctions it has gradually imposed on Syria since 2011, which have worked in favor of the terrorists operating in Syria and are aimed at pressuring the Syrian government and people into changing their position.
The decision reveals unequivocally that the EU is “complicit in the conspiracy against Syria,” an official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry told SANA on Sunday.
This complicity is evident in some of the EU’s member states providing all forms of support, including armament, to the terrorist groups, the source said.
Other evidence of this complicity, he added, is the attempts by those states to frustrate the initiatives and efforts seeking a settlement for the crisis in Syria.
