How Has the World Responded?

France, the U.K., the United States and Egypt have recalled their ambassadors from Syria. The European Union has embargoed oil exports from the nation, the U.S. and Canada have also imposed sanctions and Arab nations have banned transactions with the Syrian government and central bank.

Also, the U.N. General Assembly voted in favor of an Arab-backed initiative, which asks President Bashar al-Assad to resign, condemns human rights violations in Syria and calls for an end to the violence.
