Geneva, A delegation from the People's Assembly called for exerting pressure on Western governments to lift unilateral coercive measures imposed on the Syrian people and stop supporting and financing terrorism, which is one of the obstacles to stability in Syria.
The Syrian parliamentary delegation's remarks came during their participation in the 2018 World Investment Forum which kicked off last Friday in Geneva with the participation of more than 5,000 participants from representatives of states, private sector, international organizations and civil society.
In the same context, head of the delegation Rami Saleh affirmed in a speech sent by the Syrian Embassy in Geneva to the office of the Secretary-General of the Inter-Parliamentary Union that the Syrian People's Assembly is keen to participate actively in all international parliamentary activities.
Saleh pointed to the repercussions of the economic, health and psychological effects of the coercive measures imposed by the governments of some Western countries on the Syrian people.
He also called on the Forum to recommend the lifting of these measures and considered these sanctions a violation of human rights and a disincentive to investment and development in Syria.
