WASHINGTON — The United States warned it would take “additional steps” against Syria if it continues a brutal crackdown on protesters, a week after imposing tough sanctions on the Arab nation.
“The United States believes that Syria’s deplorable actions toward its people warrant a strong international response,” the White House said in one of its strongest statements yet since the outbreak of unrest there.
It warned that unless President Bashar al-Assad’s government halted its repression of peaceful pro-democracy protests, “the United States and its international partners will take additional steps to make clear our strong opposition to the Syrian government?s treatment of its people.”
It also welcomed the European Union’s decision to impose sanctions on Syrian officials “responsible for human rights abuses.”
