EU Sanctions on Assad regime officials

Statement by Special Envoy for Syria Joel Rayburn
November 6, 2020

We applaud the November 6 announcement by the European Union imposing sanctions on eight Assad regime officials who have continued the regime’s violent repression against the Syrian people.  The combined efforts of the United States and the European Union are part of a shared commitment by the international community to deny the Assad regime the resources necessary to continue its atrocities against the Syrian people and convince them to enter into a political solution in line with United Nations Security Council Resolution 2254.
