US-imposed Caesar Act affects Syria´s drug sector

Damascus, Sep 8 (Prensa Latina) Sanctions imposed by the United States, particularly the so-called Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act, leave serious effects on Syria´s drug sector, the Deputy Health Minister Ahmed Khelefawi said Tuesday.

Washington lies and deceives the whole world when it says that both health and food sectors are excluded from provisions of this criminal legislation, passed and implemented amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Mr. Khelefawi told local press.

Mr. Khelefawi cleared out that the fact of imposing unjust sanctions on the Central Bank of Syria prevents the financing of drugs and medical equipment imports, and at the same time, global companies refuse to sign contracts with Damascus for fear of punitive measures.

The Caesar Act clause that excludes health sector was made only to deceive public opinion, said the deputy health minister.

He said that since the beginning of the Syria war, hostile nations particularly the United States and the European Union, bet on the collapse of Syria´s health sector, but fortunately it resisted and continued to provide health services despite enormous drawbacks.

Syrian government was able to find out formulas to circumvent unjust US measures and import the necessary health resources.
