The sanctions "are not allowing the Syrian economy to attract investment," Deputy Prime Minister Borisov said.
Russia’s Foreign Affairs Minister Sergey Lavrov Monday affirmed that his country will help Syria to "break" the economic blockade that President Donald Trump's administration maintains through the "Caesar Act."
"Some countries and foreign powers are trying to impose their own plans on Syria," Lavrov said during his first visit to the Arab country since 2012.
He also explained that the Russian delegation came to Damascus to encourage further development of Russian-Syrian relations.
The sanctions "are not allowing the Syrian economy to attract investment and, in fact, this is a blockade, a destructive position of the United States and the Western powers. Therefore, we are making efforts to break it," Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov said.
