The only mission the United States is accomplishing in Syria is supporting terrorists, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad told the Greek newspaper Kathimerini published by the president’s office on Thursday.
“We all know very clearly that the only mission the United States has been carrying out in Syria is supporting the terrorists, regardless of their names, or the names of their factions,” Assad said when asked to comment on US President Donald Trump’s remarks that the US mission in Syria has been accomplished.
The Syrian president also considered six countries responsible for the war in Syria.
Bashar al-Assad told the Greek newspaper Kathimerini that France, England, America along with Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey are responsible for the war in Syria for supporting the terrorists.
Trump said in late March that with the completion of the military operation against the Islamic State the US military presence in Syria is pointless, and Washington will soon withdraw its troops from that country.
There are about 2,000 US military servicemen in Syria.
