Putin says new Syria sanctions would hamper peace talks

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday said Moscow opposed any new sanctions against the Syrian leadership as they would undermine peace efforts to end the country’s protracted war.

Russia and the United States are headed for a clash at the U.N. Security Council as Moscow prepares to veto a draft resolution that would impose sanctions on Damascus.

“In terms of sanctions against the Syrian leadership, I think that now they are completely inappropriate,” Putin said at a press conference in Kyrgyzstan.

“This would not help the negotiation process but would only interfere or undermine confidence,” Putin said, adding that Russia “will not support any new sanctions in relation to Syria.”

The U.N. Security Council will vote Tuesday on the text drafted by the United States, Britain and France that would punish 11 Syrians and 10 entities linked to chemical attacks in 2014 and 2015.

A fresh round of U.N.-led peace talks aimed at ending the Syrian conflict are currently struggling to get off the ground in Geneva.-
