[Editorial] Sanctioning the most vulnerable—a failed foreign policy

Over past months, US-led threats of, or implementation of, economic sanctions have multiplied. On Jan 4, the USA suspended assistance to Pakistan until it takes “decisive action” against Afghan Taliban and the Haqqani network militant groups. From Jan 2, President Donald Trump indicated he would pull funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees saying Palestinians were “no longer willing to talk peace”. This followed the adoption by the UN security council, in December, 2017, of draconian US-drafted sanctions on North Korea in response to a ballistic missile test.
