Syria’s Foreign Affairs Ministry Sunday condemned the recent agreement between the opposition Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the U.S. company Delta Crescent, an illegal deal which is aimed at giving the White House a free hand to steal the Arab country’s oil.

“This is an illegal agreement. It is nothing more than a contract between thieves and a real robbery,” the Foreign Affairs Ministry stated, adding that the SDF-Delta contract “attacks Syrian sovereignty and reinforces the U.S. hostilities towards the country in this new attempt to steal its resources.”

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who is allied with U.S. President Donald Trump, was involved in the agreement negotiations, according to the local outlet Al Monitor.

During the negotiations, Graham held direct and prolonged talks with SDF commander-in-chief Mazlum Kobani.

In recent years, Syria has focused its efforts on rebuilding the country from the destruction caused by the U.S.-supported terrorist groups.

“We despise the militias attitude of accepting to give to the U.S. free access to Syrian natural resources,” the Ministry stated.

Syria’s oil fields are concentrated mainly in the Hasakah and Deir al Zor provinces, which are controlled by an autonomous administration led by the Kurds.

  1. This war of terror by the US was always about destabilizing the region to usher in varied opportunities for the US to plunder and thieve by one means or another. A country with a democracy and a democratically elected leader who would not bend the knee before the almighty US thug regime was always going to be a target, just as with Iraq,Libya, Venezuela, Iran and any region where NATO could expand their war machine as in Europe. In Syria’s case, Assad was popular and had friends in the wrong places; ie Russia, Iran, Lebanon and even Libya, all countries that have what the US wants geopolitically and resources. The US is currently thieving from countries all over the world and people act as though it isn’t common knowledge? We all know what these corporatist owned entities calling themselves “democracies” are and they are not going to change.
    The US, has for many years now,been the greatest threat to world peace and the biggest threat to this planet’s continued existence, stealing the oil and expansionism was always the plan.
