Le Pen Urges Trump No to Repeat Iraq and Libya Scenario in Syria

In Syria, Donald Trump should not repeat the mistakes Washington has made in Iraq and Libya, French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen said.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — US President Donald Trump should be extremely prudent in how he operates in Syria, as military intervention in both Iraq and Libya resulted in more danger for civilians rather than peace, far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen told Le Figaro newspaper on Monday.

“I am urging [Trump] to be cautious [in Syria], because we have seen what it led to in Iraq, we have seen what it led to in Libya. The truth is that it did not bring more peace, more serenity, more protection for the civilians,” Le Pen said.

Le Pen also stressed that she was against NATO’s 2011 military intervention in Libya from the start, and noted that the events that followed only proved her approach was right.

On April 7, the United States launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syrian military airfield in Ash Sha’irat. US President Donald Trump said that the attack was a response to the alleged chemical weapon use in Syria’s Idlib province on April 4, which resulted in the death of over 80 people, an incident which Washington blames on the Syrian government.
