Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi on Friday urged lifting of all sanctions imposed on Syria by the US and EU, terming them as illegal, APA reports citing IRNA.

Iran has described the increase in sanctions on the Syrian people as an illegal and inhumane move, the senior Iranian diplomat stated.

The most negative consequences of the sanctions will be on the Syrian people and ordinary citizens, he underlined.

Mousavi termed the sanction as an inhumane act that directly puts human rights in jeopardy.
