Mattis responded to the journalists ‘ question about whether the US has legal grounds for the deployment of their troops in Syria.

“The UN has stated that in principle we can chase ISIS (“Islamic state” terrorist group banned in Russia – ed.) . And we are there to destroy them,” — said the head of the Pentagon, but did not elaborate on what the resolution of the world organization it is.

The Minister said that the forces of the international antiterrorist coalition will remain in Syria until then, until you reach success at the Geneva negotiations. According to him, this is due to necessity of elimination of the grounds for the emergence of “IG version 2.0”.

The UN security Council gave the U.S. permission for military operations in Syria. Deputy foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said earlier that the American military presence in Syria is “illegal and unacceptable” because it was not approved by the government of the Arab Republic.

The U.S. administration to conduct military actions abroad should request permission of Congress. In reality, this rule is constantly violated, said RIA Novosti.
