BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:50 P.M.) – Russia will not distance itself from Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, despite the Trump regime’s recent demands, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters during a press conference on Wednesday.

Peskov asserted that Russia’s primary objective in Syria is to defeat the Islamic State (ISIL) and other terrorist groups, while also searching for a diplomatic settlement to end the six year long conflict.

“We believe that posing a question on the need to distance from Assad, without mentioning two major goals, are short-sighted,” Peskov said.

The Kremlin Spokesman reaffirmed his support for the Syrian government in their fight against terrorist forces plaguing the country.

“That’s why posing a question that Russia should stop supporting Assad and therefore stop backing his efforts in the fight against ISIL (former name of the Islamic State terrorist group outlawed in Russia) sound in a rather absurd way as de facto; this is probably relevant to the calls to stop assistance and play into the hands of terrorists so that they could continue offensives against the legitimate authorities of Syria,” Peskov concluded.
