Washington cannot agree with the claims of Israel and Greece that Turkey sells oil supplied by terrorists of the Islamic State, reports RIA News Statement by State Department spokesman Mark Toner.


State Department still sees no evidence of Ankara’s oil deals with terrorists


“We disagree with this assessment,” said Toner. “We see no evidence supporting this accusation.”

“We know that smuggling in this area has a centuries-old history, there are established smuggling routes, these routes are permanent and difficult to completely destroy. But the US rejects the assumption that the Turkish government somehow helps the IG in smuggling oil ",
added on.

According to Toner, "there is no economic sense in this, and the United States does not see any such intentions of Turkey."

Earlier, the head of the Israeli Defense Ministry said that "IS militants are funded by Turkish money." And the Greek Defense Ministry said that "IG sells most of the smuggled oil to Turkey."

        Washington stands up for Turkey, which means the American authorities are aware of all the criminal acts of the Turkish leadership. The Americans will continue to cover up the criminal actions of terrorists, as well as those who provide them with aiding, if anything is contrary to the selfish interests of the American leadership. The Russian side, of course, provided incontrovertible evidence of the supply of contraband oil by ISIS terrorists to Turkey, if this is not seen in Washington, then all the Americans’ talks about the general fight against the terrorist group are false and actually contribute to the financing of ISIS. This is confirmed by selective missile bombing by a US-led coalition against ISIS positions that did not cause any significant damage to terrorists

      All the same, we will take into account that Turkey is an ally of the United States and it is normal that they do not notice ... Although they hardly like what Erdogan is doing there! This is the same if, at the official level, Russia begins to drive the barrel into Belarus, although Father Butcher gives reasons for it once ... Not quite a correct comparison, but somewhere like that! It is encouraging that the State Department speaks about this in general, recognizing the very fact of the oil tower of Turkey and the Islamic State!

        Yes, but Greece is also a NATO ally, and Israel is generally the main US ally in the BV.
        Obviously, the United States simply includes a fool, although what can be expected from a country created by adventurers and crooks, where Colt was the main law for many years.

        “We know that smuggling in this area has a long history, there are established smuggling routes, these routes are permanent and difficult to completely destroy.

        - This suggests that the United States clearly has its interest in this smuggling. And in simple words: smuggled oil most likely gets cheaply, through Turkey, and to the USA!

          Well, that’s already too much)))) it’s just that the United States, together with the Turks, the cartar and the Saudis, created the igil, that’s kept quiet.

        But if one or the other tanker is slowed down, and demanding that the Syrian government be returned stolen, then the one who testifies first is the thief.

        The qualitative composition of oil is an indisputable indicator of the place of origin of oil.

          Well yes. To prove the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, it was enough to shake the test tube with ... I really wanted to and found it. Now the situation is different, and even the "qualitative composition of oil" will not be an argument, I have no doubt about it.

    Washington does not see evidence of Turkey’s participation in Daesh oil.
    Living pipelines from thousands of tankers have also not been truncated over the years of their presence in the region.

    As the saying goes: "But I didn't even notice the elephant!" It’s just that the Americans don’t need this, that is, the hour has not come, or maybe they won’t see it at all, the situation is not right. They still do not see what is happening in Ukraine, although they sit in the highest offices, even in the president's chair.

    How, how!, Russian "legions" in the southeast of the former Ukraine saw the bombing of civilians in Syria by the Russian Aerospace Forces, thousands of Russian soldiers in Crimea saw it during the referendum. They saw a million protesters against the "Putin regime" on the squares of Moscow, but they did not see one and a half thousand oil tankers loaded "to the eyeballs" and heading to Turkey - their eyes were blurred. It is necessary to treat not only the eyes, but the whole head. bully
