Syria preparing sanctions against U.S.

Syria is preparing a law that would prohibit trade dealings with the United States in response to U.S. sanctions imposed on the Arab country last month, Syrian legislators said Saturday.

More than 130 members of the 250-seat legislature have prepared a draft of the “America Accountability Act” that would impose “strict sanctions” on American interests in Syria.

In a statement faxed to The Associated Press in Damascus, parliament officials said the draft law is a response to “Washington’s policy in the region and its unlimited support and bias for Israeli policies and practices and to the Syria Accountability Act.”
