Zwar zeichnet sich ab, dass von deutscher Seite trotz nachdrücklicher US-Forderungen eher keine Bodentruppen nach Syrien entsandt werden, scheinen andere EU-Staaten demgegenüber laut Foreign Policy deutlich aufgeschlossener zu sein: „In a major victory for U.S. President Donald Trump’s national security team, the United Kingdom and France have agreed to send additional forces to Syria to pick up the slack as U.S. troops withdraw, sources familiar with the discussions told Foreign Policy. […] In addition to Britain and France, Italy is close to a decision on whether or not to send additional forces, and a number of Balkan and Baltic states are “almost certain to send handfuls of soldiers each,” according to a separate source with knowledge of the discussions. […] The news comes a day after Germany rejected a similar U.S. request to send ground troops to Syria, where war has been ongoing since 2011.“ (jw)
