Obama lifts restrictions on the supply of weapons to US allies in Syria

US President Barack Obama has lifted the formal restrictions on the supply of arms to US allies fighting terrorism in Syria, RIA Novosti reported.

A statement of the White House Press says that the operations involved in supporting or facilitating US military operations to fight terrorism in Syria are important to the national security interests of the United States.

Obama also overturned a ban on the supply of "military equipment" and funding in Syria, which is under US sanctions, a country that supports terrorism.

The term "military equipment", under US law, actually means any military product.

In order for the ban to be lifted, the Secretary of State, John Kerry, and the Secretary of Defense, Ashton Carter, will have to provide detailed information to Congress and get its approval on the matter.
