France's Macron says he persuaded Trump to keep troops in Syria

France's Macron says he persuaded Trump to keep troops in Syria

"Ten days ago, President Trump was saying the United States of America had a duty to disengage from Syria", Macron said. "We convinced him it was necessary to stay for the long term". "We are determined to completely crush ISIS and create the conditions that will prevent its return".

Macron said on Sunday that the operation against Syria was "legitimate" and conducted within the global community framework.

Haley said the three US goals for accomplishing its mission have been making sure chemical weapons are not used in a way that could harm USA national interests, defeating the Islamic State terror group and having a good vantage point to watch what Iran is doing. (Though it should be said that Macron is one of the few non-authoritarian leaders Trump seems to respect.) In any case, the claim is testament to the depth of Trump's remarkable capriciousness on all matters, including those that concern the life and death of American soldiers.

The bombings marked the biggest intervention by Western countries against Assad and ally Russian Federation but the United States, France and Britain have said the missile strikes were limited to Syria's chemical weapons capabilities and not aimed at toppling Assad or intervening in the civil war.

Saturday's strikes on Syria were the first major military operation since Macron's election in May past year.

The French president nevertheless said he wanted to engage in dialogue with all parties involved, including Moscow, in order to find a political solution for Syria.

Architect of the MCU Kevin Feige teased at Brazil Comic Con in December 2017 that Infinity War will begin with a bang. When asked what Gillan had to say about being a rare antagonist to survive, she said she was "honoured".

A tweet from Mr Trump last week about United States missile strikes on Syria had read: "Get ready, Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and "smart".

Mr Macron insisted the Western allies had "complete global legitimacy to act" in Syria. The Western states have accused forces of Assad of an attack with the use of chemical weapons in Duma.

Mr Macron said he still wanted dialogue with all parties, including Russian Federation, to try to find a political solution and would go ahead with a planned trip to Moscow next month.

Inspectors from the independent Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) are now in Damascus.

Commenting further on the issue, Macron said that the Western strikes had split Turks from Russian Federation in Syria, as Ankara has approved the attack. It wouldn't be the first time he'd changed his mind on Syria, after all.

"All of our missiles reached their target", he said.
