Trump and Macron discussed the inadmissibility of chemical attacks in Syria
Presidents of the United States of America and France discussed on Tuesday by telephone the situation in Syria and in anticipation of the withdrawal of American troops from the country reiterated that the use of chemical weapons there is unacceptable, the White House said.
“The two leaders discussed the situation in Syria, including the commitment of the United States and France to the destruction of ISIS, as well as plans for an unambiguous, conscious and coordinated withdrawal of US troops from Syria,” the report said.
“They confirmed that any use of chemical weapons in Syria in the future is unacceptable,” added the White House.
Earlier, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo assured that Washington gave all the allies detailed explanations about the withdrawal from Syria.
In the middle of December 2018, Trump declared a victory over ISIS in Syria, this was the only reason for the stay of the American military in the country. Later, the White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders reported that the United States began withdrawing troops from Syria, but a victory over ISIS does not mean the end of the coalition.
Since 2014, the United States and its allies have conducted an anti-ISIS operation in Iraq and Syria, and in Syria they operate without the permission of the authorities of the country who consider such actions as occupation. There were about 2 thousand American military in the country who, together with the “Syrian Democratic Forces”, controlled territories in the east and northeast, which are rich in natural resources.
