Resolution Condemning The Assad Regime and Its Backers
After seven years of war and the deaths of more than half of a million people, the atrocities of the Assad regime are still ongoing with the help of Russia and Iran. The United States must push for an end to the violence and suffering in Syria and hold the perpetrators accountable.
H. Res. 1165 condemns the Assad regime and its backers, including Russia and Iran, for their continued support of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Syria.
The resolution also calls upon the President and Secretary of State to work towards a sustainable political transition in Syria and a strategy to prevent a permanent Iranian presence in the region. The resolution also condemns the Russian Federation for their continued support of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Syria.
H. Res. 1165 reiterates Congress’ opposition to U.S. assistance to government-controlled areas in Syria until its government has ceased its pervasive crimes against humanity and has demonstrated progress towards a free and fair government that demonstrates compliance with internationally recognized rights.
We must continue to work with our partners to condemn the Assad regime’s horrific abuses against the Syrian people and counter Iran and Russia’s malign influence in the region.
