Russia: Putin, Rouhani condemn Syrian sanctions, Erdogan wants end to conflict

Russian Federation, Novo-Ogaryovo
July 1, 2020 at 14:20 GMT -00:00 · Published

Russian President Vladimir Putin held video conference on the Syrian situation with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Hassan Rouhani in Novo-Ogaryovo Wednesday.

Putin said the new US sanctions against Syria were “illegal and unlawful” and blamed Washington and Brussels for imposing new restrictions despite the position of the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, who “called to lighten the sanctions during the pandemic.”

“The Islamic Republic of Iran declaims all the sanctions imposed against sovereign nations and highlights Iran will keep supporting Syria. Illegal actions of American regime will not disrupt Syria’s allies’ will,” Iranian leader Rouhani said on his turn.

Turkish President Erdogan stated Ankara “would like to see peace, order and safety in Syria.”

“We will do our best to keep Syrian territorial integrity and bring the conflict to a sustained end,” he added.

In June, Washington announced new sanctions against 39 individuals and entities including Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his wife, in an effort deprive the revenue of the Syrian government.
