CANBERRA, Australia (AP) - Australia has announced new sanctions against Syria covering oil, petroleum, financial services, telecommunications and precious metals.
Foreign Minister Bob Carr said in a statement Monday that the new trade sanctions are in addition to Australia's arms embargo and financial and travel sanctions on Syrian individuals and entities.
He says they increase pressure on Syria to abide by the U.N.'s peace plan.
