    A non-military plan to weaken the Syrian regime by isolating it economically, socially, and diplomatically is to be made public today at the Friends of Syria conference in Tunis. A cease-fire and a safe route for humanitarian aid will be demanded at the meeting as well.

    The sanction plan includes a travel ban against scores of senior Syrian government officials, an asset freeze of their money and properties, and a suspension of Syrian oil purchases and foreign investments in the country’s infrastructure. The participating countries at the conference will be asked to implement the proposal and also close Syrian embassies in their capitals as well as their own ones in Damascus.
