Syria’s top diplomat made a rare appeal to the U.N. General Assembly in New York, demanding recompense for the oil and gas the United States had wrongfully taken from his country as well as for the enormous energy losses incurred during the 11-year conflict.
Speaking to the assembly on Monday, Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said that “the war against Syria, ultimately, was an attempt by the West to maintain control over the world.” He also demanded that the ongoing US military occupation of the region’s oil- and gas-rich northeast “end immediately, without conditions.”
He told the UN’s top officials that the crisis has cost the oil and gas industry $107 billion in “direct and indirect” losses, emphasizing further that Damascus is seeking restitution.
“Fighting terrorism does not happen through an illegitimate international coalition that violates Syria’s sovereignty and destroys towns and villages,” Mekdad asserted. According to him, any “counterterror” operation or foreign presence on Syrian territory must be coordinated directly with the president, Bashar al-Assad.

Whereas the Biden administration has opted to emphasize an ongoing counter-terrorism role, the hundreds of American forces stationed in eastern Syria during the Trump administration years were there to “secure the oil” as Trump has frequently repeated. And yet, the biggest and most significant oil and gas fields in the area are still under the control of US soldiers and their Kurdish SDF proxies.
Turkey is on edge as Russia, which has long urged for the prompt withdrawal of American forces, recently looked to ratchet up its air campaign against Idlib’s anti-government Islamist factions. Meanwhile, intermittent strikes on US bases have apparently been carried out by pro-Iranian militias.
Ironically, only last week, in his presentation to the UNGA, President Joe Biden said “you cannot seize another country’s territory by force. The only country doing that is Russia.”
The obvious was then quickly brought up by several pundits, who noted that while Biden criticized Russia’s occupation of eastern Ukraine, he was entirely ignorant of America’s protracted occupation of Syria. Or, alternatively, Washington is undoubtedly aware of this and thinks it is the only nation in the world with the “right” or “mandate” to occupy any foreign territory it chooses.
