Nebenzia: US occupation plunders Syria’s resources, prevents stability in the country

New York, SANA- New York Russia’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Vasily Nebenzia, has affirmed that the US occupation forces are plundering Syria’s natural and agricultural resources and preventing stability in it.

Russia Today website quoted Nebenzia as saying yesterday in a session of the UN Security Council that “Syria has achieved great successes in combating terrorism,” stressing that Washington’s occupation of large parts of Syrian territory prevents stability there.

Nebenzia said that “the United States continues to loot the natural and agricultural resources that belong to the Syrian people,” adding that it “expands its illegal trade in Syrian grain and oil and smuggles them outside the borders.”

The Russian diplomat added that the United States “is looting the Syrian wheat and oil, which are the basis for addressing the energy and food crisis,” noting that “civilians in the areas occupied by the United States in Syria live under unacceptable humanitarian conditions and there is no accountability for crimes.”
