According to the Syrian Foreign Ministry, EU sanctions imposed on 16 servicemen and scholars is a direct support of terrorist organizations and cover of their crimes in Syria.
A source in the ministry also emphasizes that the European sanctions have been imposed before the end of investigation in Khan Sheikhoun. Such steps of the European leaders express support for the illegal armed groups and distort the actual situation in Syria.
Let us remind you, on July 2017, EU imposed sanction on a group of Syrian, who, in their opinion, allegedly took part in the development and used chemical weapons against civilians.
At the same time, the Syrian authorities have never used chemical weapons against neither terrorists no civilians and the entire chemical stocks was destroyed and exported under control of OPCW in 2015.
