American weekly Newsweek published a noteworthy material on the Russian military presence in Syria. The article tells how, what position did the American authorities take on the presence of the Russian military contingent in the SAR.
The author of the material, with reference to a representative of the US State Department, writes about, that the White House "does not insist on the withdrawal of Russian troops from Syria". It is noted, that the US insists, for the Iranian military to leave the territory of Syria.
Describing their own military presence in the SAR, which is illegal from the point of view of international law, to Washington talk about, that “the main course remains unchanged - the fight against ISIS and Al-Qaeda (terrorist groups, banned in Russia). At the same time,, that the US "will continue to support democratic forces in Syria". Such forces in Washington today mean Kurdish troops, some of which are involved in the exploitation of the Syrian oil fields by the Americans.
American political scientists meanwhile make it clear, that for Trump the Russian military presence in the SAR is "not so important". The main message is as follows: if the Americans are not interfered with the Syrian oil, it is not so important for Americans, what contingent of Russia keeps in Syria.
Added to Newsweek, that the US authorities declare an "additional target" in Syria:
This is the guard of the oil fields.
Protection from whom? From the Syrian government?..
