US claims to Syria’s oil fields are absolutely illegitimate and have no basis in international law, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has said, according to Turkish television.

“They [the US] acknowledge and openly state that they are present there [in Syria] because of oil fields. No one has a right to Syrian resources. They came here, across thousands of kilometers, and said ‘We will evaluate the oil fields of this country’. This contradicts the norms of international law,” Cavusoglu said, his remarks cited by the A Haber tv channel.

The Turkish authorities have joined their Russian and Iranian counterparts in condemning the U.S. for occupying Syria’s oil fields.

While Turkey has cutoff diplomatic relations with Syria, they have still remained opposed to the U.S.’ presence inside the country

With ErDOG insistences for a US-Turkey jointly patrolled SDF/YPG-free “security-zone”, US accepted the deal… Obviously, it wasn’t a green light for an invasion, and even less for deploying jihadists in the security zone… Seems the ErDOG regime believes the Islamic BS that kafir are idiots [that must be called pigs or monkeys]… Cheating on an agreement with the USA is not without consequences… Oh, BTW, the PESCO is funding the extension of the Evangelos Florakis naval base in Mari, Cyprus, so it will be able to be used as a port of call for the Charles de Gaulle (CDG) nuclear… Read more »
