“If you say that someone from the participants in this process and regret that the American military out of Syria, probably, rather, I don’t disagree with it,” — said Peskov, adding that “the presence of Americans on Syrian soil is not conducive to the order to reach the political and diplomatic settlement”.
“We all know the situation in some sectors [of Syria] under the control of the United States, where a humanitarian catastrophe, and the armament and rearmament of the terrorist groups to train new fighters, where the local population is without access to medical help or simply leave the area. I mean the area which is adjacent to the Jordanian-Iraqi border”, — stated the representative of the Kremlin.
He called curiosity the latest tweets from U.S. President Donald trump.
“We all know about yesterday’s tweet of the President of the USA that the USA go from Syria and that will begin a new phase. We still don’t know what this phase.

“President Putin publicly confirmed the information that when the Israelites were asked to move away from the boundaries of the Iranian armed compounds and Russia, along with our Iranian partners have done this kind of work, as a result, the Iranians withdrew from the border for almost 100 kilometres, the Americans had certain areas of Syria to leave, such was the promise in response to such actions. This promise was not fulfilled,” stated Sands.
He also said: “And then we know that the Americans all the time somewhere go and all the time the presidents of the United States to make those decisions”. “They have come out many years from Afghanistan, resulting in a significant portion of this country is under the control of the Taliban (banned in Russia), we know about the increase in the area under cultivation, from which then make drugs, and which then float in the direction of our country, in the direction of Western Europe. We know the difficult situation in Iraq, where the remains of the Americans,” — gave examples of Sands, and suggested: “so let’s wait and see whether really leave the Americans the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic.”
