Foreign Minister of Germany Heiko Maas criticized the decision of the U.S. to withdraw the troops from Syria. According to him, it jeopardizes the results, which have been previously achieved, as German Foreign Ministry reported.
“There is a danger, the consequences of this decision will harm the fight against the ISIS and will jeopardize the achieved results,” he said.
The minister emphasized that the terrorists in eastern Syria remain active, and emphasized the necessity of the political settlement.
“This is exactly why we work along with our partners work for the political process. The UN possesses leadership in this issue,” he claimed.
As we reported, president of U.S. Donald Trump proclaimed the victory over the terroristic organization of the Islamic State in Syria.
Earlier, the US State Department announced that Russia and Syria had falsely accused Syrian militants of shelling Aleppo on November 24.
On November 24, the Syrian city of Aleppo was fired with shells filled with poisonous gas; 107 civilians were injured. Official Syrian authorities, loyal to President Bashar al-Assad, reported that Aleppo was shelled from 120-millimeter mortars.
