TEHRAN – Milking continues unabated, Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif said on Wednesday, pointing to Washington’s exploitation of Saudi petrodollars.

“‘Milking’ continues unabated. Confirmed today: President Trump demands additional $4B from Daesh financiers to keep uninvited U.S. troops in Syria. Anything to reverse successes against extremists and undermine Syrian national unity,” Zarif tweeted. 

In another tweet, the foreign minister posted a photo of President Rouhani and his Russian and Turkish counterparts, saying, “Crucial summit today with Turkey and Russia. Joint renewal of commitment to sovereignty, independence, unity, territorial integrity and non-sectarian character of Syria.”
