Moscow insists that the United States should fulfill its pledge to fully withdraw from Syria, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told reporters on Monday.
“We insist that the United States should fulfill its pledge and fully withdraw from Syria,” he said.
On December 19, 2018, US President Donald Trump ordered a full withdrawal of US troops from Syria, claiming that the Islamic State terror group (outlawed in Russia) had been defeated.
About 2,000 US troops are currently deployed to Syria. According to US officials, the pullout will take 60 to 100 days.
