"We have to wait to see what is the background of this decision, maybe Trump is trying to get more money from the Gulf world so we cannot say anything about this statement now, because Trump changes his mind every day. It’s too early to say if Trump’s decision will actually be implemented… No one trusts Trump, he is a big liar," Syrian parliament member Ahmad Merhi told Sputnik on Wednesday.
The remark comes after White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said earlier in the day that US servicemen were returning home from their mission fighting the Daesh* terrorist group in Syria. She stressed that the United States was moving on to the next phase in its campaign in Syria and would continue to work with its allies to fight the radical group.
The US-led coalition of more than 70 countries is conducting military operations against the IS in Syria and Iraq. The coalition's operations in Syria are not authorized by the Syrian government or the UN Security Council.
