White House bans Syrian petroleum imports

The Obama administration on Thursday imposed fresh sanctions on Syria's government, freezing any of its assets in the United States as well as banning petroleum products of Syrian origin.

The latest round of sanctions against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government prohibit U.S. entities, wherever located, from engaging in any transactions or dealings with Syrian petroleum products.

The administration also blacklisted a new round of Syrian companies, including the state-owned General Petroleum Corporation that controls the country's oil and gas industry.
