Al-Shammari added, “A new security agreement with the United States of America will include the separation of the Syrian military arena from Iraq, and this is very important and distances the country from the events taking place there.”
“The agreement will include the removal of the remaining advisers and trainers, not just soldiers, as needed,” he said.

Panama Canal drought hits oil and gas tanker traffic
The Financial Times reported that tankers, including those carrying natural gas, remained parked for long periods in the Panama Canal zone due to traffic restrictions following the drought.
Earlier, the Panama Canal administration reduced the number of cargo trips and banned ships carrying heavy loads from using the corridor against the backdrop of severe drought that lasted for months.
The newspaper quoted shipping agency Norton Lilly as saying that “the average waiting time for large tankers carrying LNG north through the canal increased from eight days to 18 days.”
The newspaper added, quoting Xeneta, that “the average cost of an urgent shipment of a 40-foot (12-meter) container from China to the United States, via the canal, rose by 36 percent and amounted to $2.4 thousand.”
According to industry officials, the potential for traffic disruptions for tankers carrying LNG has increased, as container ships often book access to the route several months in advance.
The paper notes that “more than 3 percent of the world’s trade, including gas and fruit from South America, passes through the nearly 110-year-old canal that provides Panama’s main income.”
In addition to the problems related to the functioning of the Panama Canal, the abnormal decrease in rainfall this year is harming livestock and crop production, as local producers have already lost thousands of hectares of crops. ended 25 n
