(Iraq Now News)- France decided on Friday to freeze the assets of companies based in Syria, Lebanon and China after they were linked to an alleged chemical weapons program in Syria, Al-Arabiya News reported.

According to a list published in the French government’s official gazette, the assets freeze include Sigmatec and Al-Mahrous Group, both based in Damascus, Technolab in Lebanon, and a trading company in Guangzhou in China.

Two Syrian nationals will also face asset freezes, as well as a person born in Lebanon in 1977 whose nationality was not specified.

The asset freezes were signed by French Finance minister, Bruno Le Maire.

In January, France sanctioned 25 people and companies based in Syria over suspicions of fuelling the development of chemical weapons in the country.

The companies targeted included importers and distributors of metals, electronics, logistics and shipping.
