Syria condemns over $107 B losses after oil, gas plundered by U.S.

Damascus, Aug 29 (Prensa Latina) The Syrian government on Monday revealed losses of over $107 billion in natural resources, including oil and gas, as a consequence of overall plunder by the United States and illegal armed militias.

The plunder and illegal trade by the United States and its terror and separatist groups have triggered a huge destruction in this sector since 2011, the Foreign Ministry assured in letters sent to the UN Secretary-General (UNSG) and UN Security Council President.

It was known that both direct and indirect losses amounted to $107.1 billion up to mid-2022.

The so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) loot and smuggle all national sources under protection, support and sponsorship of the U.S. forces.

On the other hand, it was criticized that apart from terrorists’ plotting, the International Coalition’s bombing on hydrocarbon facilities has caused losses worth $2.8 billion.

Syria has its right to take legal measures set forth by international law and the UN Charter in order to claim compensation for direct and indirect losses in oil, gas and mineral resource sectors, according to the text.

The Foreign Ministry cleared up that Syria has been so far facing up severe consequences and negative impacts arising from the US forces’ control over the country´s natural and energy resources.
