Putin tells US to stop ‘looting’ Syria

Samizdat | July 19, 2022

The US needs to stop “stealing” the oil from the Syrian people and state, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday, after meeting with his Iranian and Turkish counterparts in Tehran. The three guarantors of the “Astana process” also agreed that the US should leave the trans-Euphrates, and stop making the humanitarian crisis in Syria worse with their unilateral sanctions.

American troops must leave the territory east of the Euphrates river and “stop robbing the Syrian state, the Syrian people, exporting oil illegally,” Putin told reporters on Tuesday evening. He said this was a “common position” of Russia, Iran and Turkey.

Several hundred US troops are illegally present in Syria, mainly controlling the oil wells and wheatfields in the country’s northeast, controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) militia since the defeat of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) terrorists. The US-backed SDF has refused to reintegrate with the government in Damascus, which Washington wishes to see overthrown.

Since 2019, the US has sought to punish anyone trying to assist the reconstruction of war-torn Syria via the “Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act,” accusing the government of President Bashar Assad of war crimes and blocking all assistance to Damascus.

Putin said on Tuesday that such sanctions have had “disastrous results” and that humanitarian aid to Syria “should not be politicized.”

During Tuesday’s summit in Tehran, Putin met with Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan. In a joint declaration, the three presidents confirmed their conviction that “there can be no military solution to the Syrian conflict,” only a political one under the leadership of the UN. They also condemned “unilateral sanctions violating international law” that are exacerbating the serious humanitarian situation in Syria, urging the UN and other international organizations to “increase assistance to all Syrians, without discrimination, politicization and preconditions.”

Russia sent an expeditionary force to Syria in September 2015, at the request of Damascus, to help defeat IS and other terrorist groups. In January 2017, Moscow, Ankara and Tehran launched the “Astana process” – named after the capital of Kazakhstan – to resolve the conflict in Syria, which began in 2011.

  1. “Since 2019, the US has sought to punish anyone trying to assist the reconstruction of war-torn Syria via the “Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act,” accusing the government of President Bashar Assad of war crimes and blocking all assistance to Damascus”.

    “The Pot, calling the Kettle black”…….”7 countries in 5 years”, and the American people are probably unaware that the USA is the aggressor in Syria, and think that Mr Bashar Assad is a “terrorist”(when it is the USA which is the terrorist).
    Such is the power(to deceive)of the American Mainstream Media.

  2. Israel should stop looting Syria.

    Israel should stop looting America, as well. No more aid to a racist, killer, warring, terrorist state.

    Why does America align with a nation/state which has done all the spying, importing of narcotics, the not-so-secret financing of the pedophiles Epstein and Maxwell, for a quick few examples?

  3. The occupation of part of Syria is for the benefit of the parasitical state of Israel. America is run by Neocons and Neoliberals whose allegiance is not to America. Since 1991, they have ramped up Middle Eastern wars for the sake of the only non-Arab and non-Persian country in the region.

  4. An agreement with Turkey is worth less than the paper it was written on. Trust in the UN is another pipe dream. Will they ever learn?

  5. Turkey operates like a tidal wave generator. It doesn’t matter whether it supports the USA or Russia, it needs the movement. That area has only caused troubles since it is no longer ruled by Constantinopel. First, it caused all trade to end between Europe and the far east via the Silk Route. Then it enslaved many Europeans. Then it killed their internal opposition. Now they are looting their neighbours and killing their own journalists who dare to write the truth about the regime.
