Syria/adoption of sanctions by the Arab League

Statement by the Foreign and European Affairs Ministry Spokesman

Paris, November 28, 2011

We welcome the Arab League’s exemplary decision to impose sanctions on the Syrian regime.

This decision is an appropriate response to the bloody crackdown, [which has continued] in spite of the Arab League’s efforts to find a peaceful solution to the crisis.

It marks another stage in the isolation of Syria, who remains deaf to all appeals from the international community.

This decision must serve as an example to the entire international community and lead to greater joint mobilization in all international fora to end the bloodbath in Syria. France will remain mobilized alongside the Arab League./.
