The United States must withdraw troops from Syria and the entire region as soon as possible, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said at a summit on the settlement of the Syrian conflict with the participation of leaders Russia and Turkey, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
«The fate of Syria should be decided by its people, without foreign interference <…> the illegal presence of US occupying forces will destabilize Syria <…> the powerful presence of the Syrian army will help to preserve the integrity of the country”, — said the Iranian leader (quoted by Reuters).
According to him, the Syrian crisis has no military solution, the conflict can only be resolved through political means, and military action can worsen the situation. Raisi considered the Astana format effective, within which the leaders of the countries meet.
Putin in response spoke about the “destructive line of Western states led by the United States”, which contributes to the growth of crime, extremism, separatism” in the territories not controlled by the Syrian authorities.
