DAMASCUS, Jan. 15 (Xinhua) -- The Syrian government is concerned that the latest U.S. move to form a new army in northern Syria aims to fragment the country.

On Sunday, reports cited the U.S.-led anti-terror coalition as saying that the U.S. is working to form a 30,000-strong border security force Cheap Kony Ealy Jersey , which will be under the command of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Kurds, Arabs, and Assyrians supported by the U.S. in northern Syria.

The force will be deployed in northeastern Syria along the border with both Turkey and Iraq Cheap DeMario Davis Jersey , a move that came after the SDF captured the northern city of Raqqa from the Islamic State (IS). Raqqa was the de facto capital of the terror group.

The SDF also captured other areas from IS in the northern countryside of Deir al-Zour late last year to consolidate its positions near the Iraqi border.

The situation in northern Syria and the growing influence of the Kurdish militias have raised the ire of the Syrian government, which has for long accused Washington of playing a destructive role in Syria.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry slammed the decision on Monday, saying the U.S. bid to form an armed militia in northern Syria is "a flagrant violation of Syria's sovereignty."

The U.S. declaration "constitutes a flagrant aggression on the unity and sovereignty of Syria and a violation of the international law," the ministry said Cheap Morris Claiborne Jersey , vowing Syrian government's resolve to end the U.S. presence in the war-torn country.

"The U.S. action comes in the framework of its destructive policy in the region to fragment the countries and spur tensions to hinder any solution to the crisis," the ministry charged.

Meanwhile, the ministry warned that it will regard any Syrian citizen taking part in this U.S.-backed militia as a "traitor" and will be dealt with accordingly.

The ministry denounced the new U.S. move as a "renewed conspiracy" that will be defeated by the Syrian army, which will end any form of the presence of the U.S. and its tools in Syria.

Meanwhile Cheap Chandler Catanzaro Jersey , Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad told the pan-Arab al-Mayadeen TV that his country is determined to preserve Syria's unity, while slamming the U.S. tactics for damaging global stability.

Russia, Syrian government's main international ally, also expressed fears that the U.S. is "pursuing a policy to cut Syria into several pieces."

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Monday that the U.S. does not intend to preserve Syria's sovereignty Cheap Kelvin Beachum Jersey , accusing Washington of seeking to create a Kurdish-controlled entity along the Turkish and Iraqi border zones.

"The U.S. actions that we have been observing indicate that the U.S. does not want to keep Syria .
