Zasypkin: Russia stands by Syria in face of US unilateral coercive measures

Beirut, SANA- Russia’s Ambassador to Lebanon Alexander Zasypkin has affirmed his country’s standing by Syria in the face of the US unilateral coercive measures particularly the so-called “Caesar Act”, indicating that these measures are considered a violation of the international law.

In an interview published on Thursday, Zasypkin asserted that the unilateral coercive measures imposed on the Syrian people are doomed to failure, saying “the Syrian people who triumphed over terrorism after a long battle will overcome all the current attempts to starve them.”

“Caesar Act is an episode of the series of American coercive measures, and we stand by Syria in this economic battle,” Zasypkin said, noting that Syria is able to overcome these measures through its people who are rich in qualified cadres.

Regarding Lebanon, Zasypkin said “The Americans are preparing for sowing chaos in Lebanon,” affirming that this issue doesn’t need a lot of analysis.
