In an interview with BFMTV, the President of France Emmanuel macron announced that his country has convinced the American leader Donald trump not to withdraw troops from Syria and to strike only those objects that are associated with the production of chemical weapons.
According to the head of the Fifth Republic of Emmanuel Macron, France convinced the American leader Donald trump not to leave the territory of Syria. Moreover, France persuaded the United States to limit strikes only on objects that have had contact with chemical weapons.
“10 days ago, trump was thinking about how he would be freed from obligations in Syria, but we convinced him that Washington needs to stay in the Arab country,” macron said in an interview with BFMTV.
According to Macron, the strikes on Syria “completely legitimate” because France acted together with two other permanent members of the UN Security Council. He also said that due to this attack, the resolutions of the UN security Council ceased to be non-executable.
