Syria Refuses To 'Bow' To U.S. And Accept 'Normalization With Israel'


Syria refuses to “bow” to Washington’s demands under the latest US sanctions, Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said Tuesday, charging that their sole aim was to undermine support for dictator Bashar Assad.
“If they (Washington) dreamed that Syria and its people would bow to their conditions, then I would say let them keep dreaming because this will never happen,” Muallem told a news conference in Damascus, nearly a week after the Caesar Act came into force.
The sanctions laid down in the law, according to US officials, aim to force Assad to accept UN Security Council Resolution 2254 of 2015 that calls for a ceasefire, elections and political transition in Syria.
