Question: What European countries is the U.S. working with on their continued sale of oil and gas to Syria?

Answer: We're not going to get into details of specific engagements with our partners, but we are in close consultation with many European allies and the EU on diplomatic and financial measures that will increase the pressure on the Asad regime to cease its brutal aggression against the Syrian people.
