Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu criticized the United States for its position on oil fields in Syria.
“They acknowledge and openly say that they are present there because of oil fields. No one has rights to Syrian resources. They came here, having traveled thousands of kilometers, and said: “We will evaluate the oil fields of this country,” Cavusoglu A Haber quotes.
Previously, the Pentagon said that profits from Syrian oil, the production site of which is controlled by the US military, goes to the Arab-Kurdish Syrian democratic forces.
According to Defense Minister Mark Esper, US troops will continue to protect the oil fields and respond to any attempts by other parties to establish control over them.
This situation was commented on by the Russian Ministry of Defense. They said that US government agencies earn over $ 30 million each month from the production of contraband oil in Syria.
