When Will US and EU Lift Punitive Sanctions Against Syria?

As the war winds down in Syria, and with only a few terrorist-held areas like Idlib to clear-up, once again the question is emerging as to whether or not punitive US-EU economic sanctions are still warranted. Sanctions currently in place include an oil embargo, restrictions on banking, supplies, and direct foreign investments, as well as a western policy of freezing (and stealing) the assets of the Syrians under sanctions and Syrian central bank assets held in the EU.

Damascus maintains that the EU sanctions target Syrian citizens and businessmen, but not terrorists and their foreign and state sponsors like the US, UK, France, Netherlands and others sending aid and supplies into terrorist-held areas of Syria.

Pakistani current affairs program News Wire and its host with Ayza Omar speak to Syrian analyst Maram Susli and Human rights activist Norah Niland, and US-backed ‘opposition’ supporter Fadel Adbul Ghany, to discuss the challenging humanitarian situation in Syria and whether US-EU sanctions against Damascus should be lifted.
