3:13 pm
a way of penalizing rulers of states such as iran russia or syria or to persuade them to change their way now the u.s. government recently announced that it will no longer ship oil to syria sanctions against the assad regime also restrict oil and financial services in this report just presented the 1st time in germany u.n. special rough. criticizes this measure saying that they mainly effects civilians. and messages i-t. joins us now in the studio for more on that they so much for joining us and welcome to the program i'd like to begin by asking you about the sanctions in question i mean they were put in place by by the u.s. and europe they are intended to target president assad to what extent do you see them affecting the population and what. sanctions were imposed by the u.s. and the e.u. and several other western countries they do not really affect the situation
3:14 pm
of the government itself they can find their way of protecting its of from their impact the sanctions have created the new elite the people that are thriving on smuggling as a result of the sanctions the people that really pay the price of those whose conditions of living have that there are rated to an enormous extent and i'm talking about ordinary people that have nothing to do with the fences between western governments and their own government. the way this myth paralyzes in practice is that the prices of food have increased considerably through inflation the health of the population is lives on fixed incomes 1800000 kids cannot go to school because cools have been destroyed and they cannot find the permit that to import the building material and the
3:15 pm
teaching material to restart the schools so. they are the one that paying the price and i think they claim that there should be small of the ways of exercising pressure on the government such as what are the smarter ways because i mean you know sanctions are one of the main tools basically to you know penalize the assad regime for more. ordering its own people with impunity but people die in hospitals because of a breakdown in power supply on the road where the day of prayer the people died because they can get cancer. drugs to address the needs these are silent deaths there are no more compassionate as a result of fighting oh but it's so i do realize that the conflict itself has been
3:16 pm
a major cause of the ration of the conditions of living in syria but it has been internationally recognised that the sanctions have exacerbated these sufferings is there not a way of addressing the problems that do not make poor people pay for things that they are innocent about and can you answer that question just propose what is the other way is there a way that was shouted by the united nations which was created to have to preserve peace by promote staying different for negotiations negotiation is the solution you imposing sanctions which were not approved by the united nations as is the case for the sanctions applied to syria give the impression that you want to create an alternative framework through the u.n. framework the u.n.
