Syria Denounces US Military Presence as Act of Aggression

Syria Denounces US Military Presence as Act of Aggression

Alwaght- Syria reaffirmed on Tuesday that the uninvited presence of the US military forces in the country is considered as an aggression by the Arab country.

“The presence of the US forces or any foreign military presence in Syria without the consent of the Syrian government constitutes an act of aggression and an attack on the sovereignty of the Syrian Arab Republic as well as a gross violation of the Chart and principles of the United Nations,” said an official source at the Syrian Foreign Ministry commenting on the latest statements of US Defense Secretary James Mattis.

The source dismissed the attempt to connect the US military presence in Syria with the settlement process as “a pretext and an attempt to justify this presence,” reiterating that this connection is categorically rejected “as neither the US nor others can impose any solution by means of military pressure.”

“On the contrary, this presence only leads to prolonging the crisis and further complicating it, and this is where the real goal of this US presence in Syria lies,” the source added.

US Defense Secretary told reporters on Monday that the US forces would only leave Syria after it is evident the Syrian settlement process in Geneva is successful.

The Foreign Ministry source said Mattis’s statements stress the US administration’s agenda that is no longer unknown and the subversive role this administration has played through the “clear” and “evident” collusion with ISIS and other terrorist organizations and its constant quest to foil all efforts aimed at finding a solution to the current crisis with the aim to inflame tensions and the situation in the region in service of the Zionist project and impose hegemony on the region’s countries and resources.

“This American demeanor is enough to belie and refute the statements of the U.S. Secretary of Defense,” the source added.

Syria has also renewed demand of the immediate and unconditional withdrawal of the US forces from the Syrian territory, reiterating that the US military presence is an act of aggression on the sovereignty and independence of Syria and will be dealt with as such.
