(Syria News) Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov called, on Wednesday, all foreign troops deployed in the Syria South to withdraw from the de-escalation area.
Novosti news agency reported that Lavrov affirmed the importance of maintaining stability in the area and withdrawing all non-Syrian troops from it. He also said that it is important to withdraw the troops the soonest, while pointed out that he is already working with the US and Jordan on this regard.
Last Monday, Lavror said, “The agreement to establish a de-escalation zone southwest of Syria states that only Syrian troops have to be deployed on border with Israel.”
Lavrov statements are considered a call for Iran to pull back its troops, and a confirmation on the Israeli demands that call the Iranian militias to pull back from the southern borders.
It is noteworthy that the statements are coinciding with the visit of the Israeli Ministry of Defense Avigdor Lieberman to Russia, today, to discuss the return of Assad forces to the southern Syrian borders.
