Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad, in an interview with Chinese media, said that American troops deploying to the country are “invaders” because he hadn’t given permission for them to enter the country and saying there’s been no “concrete action” from the Trump administration toward ISIS.

“Any foreign troops coming to Syria without our invitation or consultation or permission, they are invaders, whether they are American, Turkish, or any other one,” Assad said.
“And we don’t think this is going to help. What are they going to do? To fight ISIS?
The Americans have lost nearly every war. They lost in Iraq, they had to withdraw in the end. Even in Somalia, let alone Vietnam in the past and Afghanistan, China’s neighboring country. They didn’t succeed anywhere they sent troops, they only create a mess; they are very good at creating problems and destroying, but they are very bad in finding solutions.” Assad added.
