Syrian Accountability Act
The US will soon inforce the Syrian Accountability Act:
The Bush administration will act soon to impose firm sanctions against Syria which it accuses of sponsoring terrorism, according to a US State Department official.
William Burns, the assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs, confirmed the move to a committee in the House of Representatives on Wednesday.
He said: "I think you'll see the implementation very shortly, and I think it will be a very firm implementation of the Syrian Accountability Act and the intent behind it."
