Kirby: Washington does not intend to ease sanctions imposed against Syria or withdraw its forces from its territory

ARK News… "John Kirby," the strategic communications coordinator for the US National Security Council, said that Washington does not intend to ease the sanctions imposed against Syria, or withdraw its forces from its territory, pointing out that the American presence in Syria is not large, as there are "only a thousand American soldiers." They are located in limited areas.

Kirby added that the mission of these soldiers is limited to fighting the terrorist organization ISIS, which is prohibited not only in the United States, but also in Russia, and made clear that the White House has no intention of changing the balance of power in Syria, but rather intends to continue to pursue the organization.

Western media sources had previously said that US President Joe Biden sent a notification to Congress and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi about the continuation of the national emergency against the background of the situation in Syria and the consequences of its crisis.
