US President-elect Donald Trump is going to create safety zones in Syria, using money of the Gulf States for this.
US President-elect Donald Trump has promised to establish humanitarian safety zones in Syria and force the Gulf States to pay for this.
“When I look at what is going on in Syria, it is so sad,” Trump said, speaking to his supporters in the US ‘chocolate capital’, Hershey city (Pennsylvania). “It is so sad, and we are going to help people.”
Saying this, Trump reminded about the Gulf States, which have enough money.
“I will get the Gulf States to give us lots of money and we will build and help build safe zones in Syria,” he said.
In November, Trump told US reporters about the need to stop the “madness that is happening now in Syria.”
In a recent interview with the Russia-24 TV-channel, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad admitted that Trump can become a “natural ally” of Damascus.
According to the Syrian leader, Trump’s election manifestos on the fight against terrorism and nonintervention against states were “crisp and clear.” “This is good, but this depends on Trump’s will to carry on with this approach, and his ability to do that,” Assad noted, adding if the new American president overcomes all obstacles and starts to really act against terrorism, “he will be our natural ally.”
