Beijing, SANA- China Daily newspaper described the US rejection to lift unilateral coercive measures on Syria as “a shameful and outrageous action”, which is completely expected by Washington, as it invokes the defense of freedoms to justify its practices and crimes, and exploits the paper of human rights in its geopolitical game.
The paper mocked the lies of the American officials about providing humanitarian aid to Syria, as ironic, at the time when the US military interventions in the other countries’ affairs, including Syria, and the sanctions it imposes on other countries cause humanitarian disasters.
The Chinese paper pointed out that the American politicians turn a blind eye on the consequences and repercussions of the unilateral coercive measures imposed against Syria and their devastating impact on the living of Syrians, asserting that Washington’s main objective is to achieve its geopolitical goals taking no consideration to civilians in Syria.
Following the increasing international calls to lift the siege on Syria, especially in the aftermath of the humanitarian catastrophe that befell the country by the devastating earthquake, the US administration issued a new misleading decision which provides for a temporary partial freeze of some unilateral coercive measures imposed on the Syrian people.
Syria affirmed that this decision is nothing but a repeat copy of previous shameful decisions that aim at giving a false humanitarian impression, as it stipulated alleged exceptions for humanitarian purposes which was refuted by reality, the paper went on to say.
