Russia, Iran… The West should review its sanctions against “pariah” regimes

Should we continue to isolate “untouchable” regimes? The Arab League’s reunification of Bashar al-Assad’s regime, ousted since 2011, raises questions. It has become clear that the sanctions imposed on these regimes will not bring about any political change in their country. Syria represents a textbook case. As the United States and Europe become more reluctant to use military force abroad, they opt more for economic coercion.

The United States currently sanctions approximately 10,000 individuals and companies in some 50 countries. He has ordered strict sanctions against certain states, such as Cuba or Burma. But a large number of countries are ignoring the West and talking to untouchable rule. The Chinese Foreign Minister has started talks with the Taliban.
