In the United States fear that a us military base, located in the district of al-TANF in southern Syria, unable to capture the Iranian military or support their forces. It is reported by The Washington Post, citing its own sources in the White house.
According to interlocutors of the edition, in the administration of the President of the United States believe that the desert base, which was created to combat terrorist group “Islamic state” (IG, is prohibited in Russia), can capture Iranian troops supported the Syrian government. However, some senior American officials believe that the air strikes on the aggressive forces in the area could further draw the United States into the Syrian conflict.
At the same time some other representatives of the administration of the American President insists that the base in Et Tape should be used to deploy a major campaign against the strengthening of military presence of Iran in the region.
As the newspaper notes, the debate on the future of the base is in the White house for a year and “shows confusion” the actions of US President Donald trump, who has repeatedly stated his desire to begin withdrawing troops from Syria. As for the allies of the United States, says The Washington Post, the base in Et Tape became a kind of indicator of the willingness of America to resist Iranian influence.
8 may trump announced the US withdrawal from the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program deal, which imposed limitations on the activity of Tehran in the nuclear field in exchange for the lifting of sanctions by the UN security Council and restrictive measures previously imposed by the US and the EU. The American President promised not only to restore old sanctions and impose new, if Iran “will decide to bring its nuclear ambitions.” The head of state spoke in favor of the new agreement. Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said that Tehran will not give up in the Joint comprehensive plan of action (SVPD) and will continue to comply with their obligations.
Tehran and the six mediator countries (Russia, USA, UK, China, France, Germany) have agreed on the terms of Iran’s nuclear program in the summer of 2015.
