The United States is looting oil fields in Syria openly and without ceremonies and at the same time, is banning the supply of oil to that country with sanctions, said Russian Defense Minister Army General Sergey Shoigú.

“On the one hand, the oil fields, the territory where oil is produced, are controlled by the United States. There is an open and ceremonial looting of the wealth that belongs to Syria and the Syrian people. On the other hand, it is prohibited Bring oil there, “Shoigú said.

The Russian minister added that the majority of those affected in Syria need heat, hot water and electricity that “are obtained from hydrocarbons that cannot be supplied there, and are not always able to produce them themselves.”

The foreign and defense ministers of Russia, Sergey Lavrov and Sergey Shoigú, met in Rome with their Italian counterparts Luigi Di Maio and Lorenzo Guerini in the 2 + 2 format.
