Rouhani: American Forces Must Leave Syria

Rouhani: American Forces Must Leave Syria Rouhani: American Forces Must Leave Syria

The illegal presence of American forces in Syria should end immediately, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in a videoconference on Syria on Wednesday.
He also underscored that Iran would continue its unwavering support for Syria’s legal government, President.ir reported. 
Russian President Vladimir Putin also told his counterparts that there was a need for peaceful dialogue between the opposing forces in Syria’s civil war, Reuters reported.
Putin regretted that hotspots of terrorism still remain in Syria’s Idlib and other regions.
“An inclusive inter-Syrian dialogue should be actively promoted within the framework of the constitutional committee in Geneva. I propose to support this process to help the participants to meet and start a direct dialogue,” Putin said.
In Syria’s nine-year-old war, Russia and Iran are the main foreign supporters of President Bashar al-Assad’s forces, while Turkey backs opposition fighters. Under a diplomatic process, known as the Astana process, dating back to 2017, they agreed to help reduce fighting.
Erdogan told the videoconference that the priority for Syria is a lasting solution to the conflict, “achievement of calm in the field and the protection of Syria’s political unity and territorial integrity”.
“We will continue to do all we can so that our neighbor Syria finds peace, security and stability soon,” he said.
