Iranian Militias, Hezbollah - and Russia - Must Leave Syria

Iranian Militias, Hezbollah - and Russia - Must Leave Syria”

But Le Drian walked on eggshells regarding Turkey's offensive against the Kurdish militia in northern Syria, because of the arrest of "a few hundred " French-national jihadists who had been captured by the Kurds.

France said Wednesday that "all indications" suggest the Syrian regime is using chlorine weapons in its almost seven-year civil war against rebel forces.

Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told BFM TV on Wednesday that "all indications show us today that the Syrian regime is using chlorine gas at the moment".

"I'm weighing my words because as long as we haven't completely documented this we have to stay prudent", he said.

But he did not allude to any other response, including military retaliation, that France might take against the regime of President Bashar Al-Assad if the attacks are confirmed.

Tensions between Iran and France have increased since the end of 2017 after French President Emmanuel Macron had said that Tehran should be "less aggressive" in the region and clarify its ballistic missile program.

Le Drian was asked about his position on the Turkish army's invasion of northern Syria along Turkey's border, and answered that he wants "the withdrawal of all of those who should not be in Syria, including the Iranian militias, including Hezbollah".

Last month Mr Le Drian launched a shocking attack on the United Kingdom by warning Japanese firms to be aware of the "consequences" of doing business with Britain after Brexit.
