The Syrian Opposition Coalition’s (SOC) Caesar Act Follow-up Team held a preparatory meeting ahead of a meeting with US officials in charge of following the implementation of Caesar Act.
Members of the Team exchanged information on the parties that are violating the Caesar Act. They also discussed the results of the sanctions and the latest batch of sanctions to be more focused on the Assad regime and those involved in crimes against the Syrian people.
Participants in the meeting included Minister of Finance and Economy in the Syrian Interim Government (SIG), Abdel Hakim Al-Masri who talked about the liberated areas and the impact of the Caesar Act on the economy in these areas although these areas are exempt from the sanctions.
Al-Masri gave an overview on the measures SIG has taken to limit economic and commercial activities with the Assad regime.
Since the Caesar Act took effect, the SOC has held several meetings with US officials and other official bodies to strengthen cooperation and ensure the Act is fully implemented so as to achieve its goals. (Source: SOC’s Media Department)
