According to a report by the Russian Satellite News Agency on the 21st, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanani condemned the illegal presence of the US military in Syria at a weekly press conference, saying that this presence provides a living soil for terrorist activities.
Iran’s Fars (Fars) News Agency quoted Kanani as saying that the presence of the US military in Syria is illegal and has no basis in any law or international law. Kanani criticized that the continued presence of the U.S. military in Syria provides a living environment for terrorist activities. Kanani said the presence of Iranian forces in Syria is at the official request of the legitimate Syrian government and within the framework of cooperation between Iran and Syria in the fight against terrorism.
On the 12th of this month, Syria issued a statement condemning the US invasion of the country for undermining Syria’s sovereignty and national stability, saying that the US military colluded with the remnants of the “Islamic State” terrorist organization to launch a terrorist attack on a Syrian army bus, killing at least 33 soldiers. The statement also mentioned that the continued looting of Syrian oil reserves and crops by the U.S. military has led to the expansion of the U.S.-occupied region and the instability of regional security.
In 2014, the United States officially sent troops to Syria on the grounds of fighting extremist organizations. The presence of U.S. troops has brought serious disasters to Syria. The U.S. military has not only carried out air strikes on Syrian government forces many times, but also actively supports armed factions seeking to overthrow the Syrian government. At the same time, it frequently smuggles local oil and food resources in the occupied areas, causing severe energy shortages in Syria and further deteriorating the humanitarian situation. The Syrian government has written to the United Nations many times, condemning the US aggression as a serious violation of the principles of international law and the Charter of the United Nations.
