MOSCOW- The United States’ attempts to hamper Damascus’ efforts to reconstruct Syria are harmful to the country’s territorial integrity, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

The US ministry pointed out that the US embassy in Syria had said on Twitter earlier that "businesses or individuals who plan to participate in the Damascus International Trade Fair must be aware that by doing business with the sanctioned Assad regime or its associates ,they too could be subject to US sanctions." "Members of the public who have info on any businesses or individuals who plan to participate in the Aug. 28 Trade Fair in Damascus can provide such info to US authorities," the embassy said in another tweet.

"We consider the United States’ ongoing attempts to hamper the Syrian authorities’ post-crisis reconstruction efforts to be harmful to Syria’s unity, sovereignty and territorial integrity. They also run counter to the letter and spirit of the international community’s decisions on Syria, including the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2254," the Russian Foreign Ministry’s statement reads, according to Itar Tass.
