All foreign military forces illegally present in Syria must leave: Kremlin

10/7/2019 10:18:00 PM

Tehran (KNA) - Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov says Syria's territorial integrity must be preserved and all foreign troops illegally present in the conflict-plagued Arab country must leave, as the United States announced it was withdrawing troops from northeastern Syria.

“Russia’s position, recently announced by President [Vladimir] Putin, is that all foreign troops illegally present in Syria must leave the country,” Peskov told reporters in Moscow on Monday.

The Kremlin spokesman then commented on Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s statement that Ankara is prepared for a military campaign against Kurdish-led militants from the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in northeastern Syria, emphasizing Russia’s call for refraining from actions that may hamper settlement of the Syria crisis.
