Russia and Syria are calling on the global community and the United Nations to take a principled stand and urge the United States to withdraw its troops from Syria as soon as possible, the joint Russia-Syria coordination centre on refugee repatriation said in a statement on Wednesday.

“We are calling on the global community, on UN relevant structures and on international humanitarian organizations to take a principled stand and exercise influence on the United States in order to urge it to withdraw its troops from the illegally occupied Syrian territories as soon as possible, as these troops support illegal armed groups and prevent Syria from returning to normal life”, the statement read.

Both countries also called on Washington and Brussels to lift economic sanctions against Syria, stressing that the restrictions complicated acquisition of medical products and raw materials for producing medical products.

“We are calling on the United States and the European Union to lift Syria economic sanctions. Such restrictive measures do not promote the solution of pressing humanitarian and socioeconomic problems that Syria faces”, the statement read.

US forces have been operating in Syria as part of an international coalition to fight the Daesh* terrorist group for about four years without the permission of either Damascus or the UN Security Council. The number of troops, however, has been declining since, in December, US President Donald Trump claimed victory over Daesh, promising to withdraw at least 2,000 troops from the Middle Eastern country in the near future.

Like they did of old? Imprisoning and torturing and murdering civilians? Secret police and murder squads?

Think even IS prefers Assad to stay away.

Once Idleb is cleansed look for a SAA breakout north on HWY 7 from Dier ez-Zur & Al Mayadin to Halasakah (SAA) & Qamishli to cut off SDF resupply through Iraq. PMU will break north from Al Bukamah & Qu’am on the Iraqi side to cut off Kurds from Iraq. Just saying…..

Since US SOF are embeded with SDF, that’s great idea : so CJTF/OIR will demolish PMU, which, BTW, are a millstone for Baghdad’s government which is not hot for Lebanonisation and/or a Desert Storm v3.0…

Russia and Assad can demandcwhat they want and nothing will happen on this matter. Proving once and for all that US is the ultimate power and decider. Not Russia.

US will remain until there is an ultimate settlement between Assad and SDF. And then a bit longer. So it is up to Assad to decide, but he will not budge on his dictatoership.. The man is real stupid and I hope he will rot in h**l.

Hey, the Chinese just vetoed 4 times the designation of Jaish-e-Mohammed leader Masood Azhar at the UNSC!!!! Everybody fücking knows that Pakistan is fücking implied in state sponsoring of terrorism, bin-Laden’s compound’s land had been bought by Paki ISI (their CIA) and China covers the Paki’s a$$ for 2 decades, so don’t come with the “Chinese brothers” bullshït! BTW, the more things go, the more I tell myself all these creeps can’t be so efficient everywhere without SERIOUS strategic intelligence, I mean satellites + a serius army of hackers. These data don’t come from the US, Japan, EU, Israel, India… Read more »

Give me the prooves that China created Al Qaidah or ISIS, supporting Jihadists, sending weapons to Global Jihad that attacking our countries. The things that my own country France is doing, with the UK and USA. I don’t care about Hamas, Palestinian Jihad or Jaish Mohamerde kind groups, they never attacked us, they are only local islamic movement fighting a war which is not ours. China is not occupying Kashmir territories or in a military coalition against India that US, France, UK are doing in Yemen, Syria and in Iraq. By the way, sorry for you because I heard recently… Read more »

Admit the superiority of the asian culture from your barbarian monotheistic culture and leftshit west :). Unfortunately for you soon China and India will take the lead, the two nations with Iran and Russia totalize more than 3 billion of people (more than 50 % of the earth), your culture and power don’t reach their toes of the feet LOL.

Assadophiles having problems with someone not falling for Russian and Assadist BS?

Being hypocritical is still hypocritical, even when spouted by Russians. Tough luck, girls.
