Syria is preparing to file a lawsuit against the United States. This was aired on al-Mayadeen television channel by the adviser to President Buseyn Shaaban.
Syrian authorities are currently studying what measures need to be taken at the international level to file a lawsuit against the United States.
It is noted that Damascus will bring charges of theft of Syrian oil and violation of the sovereignty of the Arab Republic.
Earlier, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said that the United States secretly sells to Turkey illegally extracted oil in Syria.
According to him, when the militants of the Islamic State and Jabhat An-Nusra used the oil fields in the east of the country, Turkey bought the oil that they extracted. Now the United States controls these fields.
It was previously reported that the United States decided to maintain its military presence in northeast Syria to protect oil fields and began construction of two military bases.
US President Donald Trump said that he likes oil and noted that the main goal of the United States in Syria is to maintain control over it.
