Presence of American forces in Syria is an occupation with an aim to plunder its fortunes, says Grosbic

Prague, (ST) - Head of the Czech Parliamentary Group for Friendship with Syria, Stanislav Grosbic, affirmed that the presence of American forces in Syria is an occupation that aims to plunder the fortunes of the Syrian people and protect terrorists. He called for condemning this behavior internationally.

In a statement to a SANA correspondent in Prague, Grosbic made it clear that the only mission of the American forces in Syria is to undermine the sovereignty of the Syrian people and then steal their inner wealth.

"Everyone knows the plundering objectives of these forces and their protection of the terrorist groups, which will later pose a security threat to Europe," he said, stressing the need for the United States to withdraw all its occupying forces from Syria.
