In line with the ongoing American moves to stabilize a new field reality in the Syrian oil fields, in preparation for the start of systematic theft operations, Moscow raised the level of its warnings against any new US move contrary to international law, and reiterated that oil is the national wealth of the entire Syrian people.
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Vershinin said in a press statement commenting on the US administration’s plans to strengthen the presence of its forces in the oil field areas in Syria, according to the agency «SANA»: «oil is a national wealth of the entire Syrian people and we are convinced that this people should He is acting with his national wealth, including oil, ”he said, explaining that Russia does not intend to do joint work with America on its plans for oil fields.
For his part, Chairman of the Committee on International Affairs of the Council of the Russian Federation, Konstantin Kosachov, that the United States strengthening the presence of its forces in the areas of oil fields in Syria fundamentally violates Syrian sovereignty.
Kosachev pointed out on his Facebook page that Washington argues that the aim of these plans is to prevent terrorists from accessing the oil fields, but the real reason is a special investment for the fields concerned in Syria, regardless of the fact that Syrian sovereignty is fundamentally violated by this. The way the West doesn’t matter too much.
Kosachev warned that Syrian or Russian forces in the region could be subjected to occasional attacks, even though their presence is legitimate, unlike the illegal US presence. “A military attack on representatives of legitimate authorities in their legitimate territory would be an explicit aggression,” he said. The casualties and worsening of the situation will be entirely the responsibility of the US military, which is unnecessary there, both legally and politically.
Alexander Shirin, first deputy chairman of the Defense Committee of the State Duma, said the US plans to loot Syrian oil fields are similar to the actions of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, who occupied other countries with a similar aim.
“The US position today is no different from that of Adolf Hitler, who seized and occupied the land of others in order to access its raw resources,” Shirin said, calling on the US administration to remove its military from Syrian territory.
This comes at a time when the «« Associated Press », according to« Russia today », that President Donald Trump agreed to expand the military« mission »of the occupation forces aimed at stealing oil fields in northeastern Syria, where US officials likely to be the total number These forces have at least 800 soldiers, including about 200 in the south of Syria.
Democratic Senator Tim Keane described Trump’s decision to keep US military forces in eastern Syria as “misleading”.
