The U.S. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham was involved in the agreement negotiations.
Syria's Foreign Affairs Ministry Sunday condemned the recent agreement between the opposition Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the U.S. company Delta Crescent, an illegal deal which is aimed at giving the White House a free hand to steal the Arab country's oil.
"This is an illegal agreement. It is nothing more than a contract between thieves and a real robbery," the Foreign Affairs Ministry stated, adding that the SDF-Delta contract "attacks Syrian sovereignty and reinforces the U.S. hostilities towards the country in this new attempt to steal its resources."
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who is allied with U.S. President Donald Trump, was involved in the agreement negotiations, according to the local outlet Al Monitor.
During the negotiations, Graham held direct and prolonged talks with SDF commander-in-chief Mazlum Kobani.
