Message to Washington: If you don’t go away Syria instantly, you’ll face the identical humiliation as in Afghanistan
Al Jazeera Balkans
The United States must immediately withdraw its forces from Syrian territory, said the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Syria, Faisal Mikdad. As he says, otherwise the same humiliating result awaits them as in Afghanistan.
– We want America to focus on Afghanistan. Let them do their jobs there after the completely humiliating withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan. What we need now is for the Americans to leave Syria. Otherwise, they will face the same outcome as in Afghanistan – the head of Syrian diplomacy pointed out.
After a meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov, Mikdad told reporters that Syria and Russia believe that American soldiers should leave Syrian territory as soon as possible.
The presence of American soldiers on the territory of Syria is illegal, he added. Mikdad and Lavrov met on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.
It should be reminded that the United States and its allies have been conducting a military operation in Syria and Iraq against the Islamic State since 2014, but they are operating in Syria without the permission of the authorities of that country.
