Advisor trump told about the possible levers of pressure on Russia over Syria
Russia is “stuck” in Syria and is looking for new candidates for the post-war reconstruction of the country, which can be used as levers of pressure on Moscow. This was stated by Advisor to the President for national security John Bolton in an interview with Reuters.
“I don’t think they want to be there. I think their frenetic diplomatic activity in Europe suggests that they would like to find someone else, for example, to cover the costs for the reconstruction of Syria — they may succeed, or may not,” said Bolton.
Advisor to Donald trump added that the U.S. interests in Syria are to completely destroy affinity group banned in Russia and the IG to continue to combat the continuing threat of terrorism. In addition, Americans worried about the presence in Syria of the Pro-Iranian militias and regular forces. That’s what keeps US troops in the region.
Bolton is convinced that the current problems in Syria can give Washington the ability to put pressure on Iran and force it to leave the war-ravaged region. Whether to keep the White house its military presence in the Arab country, adviser to trump clarity.
