U.S. military presence in Syria act of aggression: Syrian govt

The Syrian government has said that US military presence in Syria represents an "aggression" against country's sovereignty, and has vowed to free the country from any "illegitimate" foreign presence.

A statement issued by the Syrian Foreign Ministry today was a response to a speech by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in which he signaled that US forces would stay in parts of Syria indefinitely.

The statement further said that the American military presence on Syrian land is illegitimate and represents a blatant breach of international law and an aggression against national sovereignty.

It said Syria would continue its relentless war against terrorist movements  until every inch of Syrian soil is cleansed and would work with the same determination to free Syria of any illegitimate foreign presence.
