Russian MoD: US no longer has any pretext to remain in Syria

Moscow, SANA- Russian Defense Ministry has said that there are no more formal pretext or any ground for the US troops to remain in Syria.

“ There are no more grounds and even formal pretexts for the US troops’ presence in Syria,” Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman, Igor Konashenkov, said in statements on Friday, adding that it turns out that Pentagon is deliberately deceiving the international and US public.

“The Pentagon’s representatives’ conclusions on the withdrawal of Russian forces from Syria show not only their ill-concealed wishes that we should not be there but also that the US does not have real information on what is happening on the ground,” Konashenkov said.

Konashenkov indicated that US President Donald Trump’s statements on his victory over Daesh (ISIS) in Syria and Pentagon’s statements that the US-led coalition will remain in the country until the full elimination of terrorism deceive the international community.
