West’s criminal sanctions against Syria a pressure tool targeting the Syrian people: Czech MP

PRAGUE, (ST)- The Trade Union Federation of the Czech, Moravia and Silesia has renewed its condemnation of the unilateral coercive measures imposed by the European Union and the United States on Syria, describing them as criminal sanctions and a pressure tool targeting the Syrian people.

Member of the Federation’s foreign affairs committee Martin Bis told SANA correspondent in Prague on Wednesday that these unfair economic measures impede the Syrian Arab Army’s counterterrorism efforts and block reconstruction in the country and recovery to normal life.

 These measures target the Syrian people and all the countries that aim at cooperating with the sovereign Syrian state, Bis said, pointing out that the European Union’s policy in this regard seeks hiding its colonialist practices.
