UNITED NATIONS, September 30 (Itar-Tass) - Unilateral sanctions and forceful measures of the United States and the European Union member states against Syria, Iran, Belarus, North Korea and other countries, contradict international law and should be abolished, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem stated on Monday.

“My country calls on the United States, the European Union member states and others to refrain from taking immoral, unilateral economic measures that are inconsistent with the provisions of international law and the principles of free trade,” he said from the rostrum of the UN General Assembly.

“We also reiterate our call to refrain from any unilateral military measures introduced against Syria and the people of other countries, such as Venezuela, Belarus, Iran and North Korea,” said the minister, also stressing the inadmissibility of the US trade and economic blockade of Cuba that has been in effect for decades.

The United States, along with Britain and France over the last few years have been pressing for the introduction of international sanctions against Syria by the UN Security Council. However, Russia and China do not allow them to achieve this goal.
