The United States’ decision to slap a raft of new sanctions on Iran is a positive, necessary step. The Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) reaffirms its support for all steps aimed at punishing the Iranian regime and confronting its regional role as a major sponsor of terrorism and criminality in the region, stressing the need to resist its plans and interventions in Syria and the rest of the Arab countries.
The Syrian people view sanctions targeting states and regimes shoring up the Assad regime as a kind of support for their struggle and a contribution to the efforts to weaken this unholy alliance which supports tyranny and hostility to peoples’ rights.
We hope that the rest of the international community will join the efforts to confront the behavior of the Iranian regime in the region; ensure freedom for the Iranian people; and rid all the peoples of the region from the interference of the Iranian regime.
The world will not see an end to chaos, mayhem, and terrorism unless international law and UN resolutions are enforced and respected by everyone without exception.
We once again warn of the dangers of the terrorist networks being run by Iran, Russia and the Assad regime in the region as we call on the international community to confront and dismantle them. Any further delay in this will risk worsening the crises and the unjustifiable loss of more lives.
