TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said US President Donald Trump continues to milk the Saudi regime for all it is worth nonstop.
“Meanwhile ‘milking’ continues unabated. Confirmed today: President Trump demands additional $4B from Daesh financiers to keep uninvited US troops in Syria. Anything to reverse successes against extremists and undermine Syrian national unity,” Zarif said in a message posted on his official Twitter account on Wednesday.
US officials said recently that Trump has been persuaded not to pull the military out of Syria immediately, despite his declaration last week that the US would "be coming out of Syria very soon".
The US has about 2,000 personnel on the ground in eastern Syria purportedly supporting an alliance of Kurdish and Arab militias called the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
