Zarif says the USA is present in Syria due to its oil

The Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on his Twitter page that the reason for the US presence in Syria is its oil.

“Donald Trump admitted that we all knew: American troops are in Syria for oil production. He also admitted that Syria, Russia and Iran are fighting ISIS*, and Iran hates ISIS*”, – the minister wrote on Twitter.

Iran’s Foreign Minister added: “Trump admitted that we already knew; US forces are sent to Syria to strengthen US control over the country’s oil reserves. Trump stressed that Iran hates ISIS and can fight terrorism along with Syria and Russia”.

“The United States did not fight ISIS*. On the other hand, they cowardly killed General Soleimani, who was the number 1 enemy for ISIS, and this only made the Americans and their allies happy”, – the head of Iranian diplomacy added.
