(Worthy News) - Russian President Vladimir Putin told the United States that his country would like Iranian forces to withdraw from Syria but cannot force them out, US President Donald Trump’s national security adviser said on Wednesday, despite Israeli calls for Iran to leave immediately.

In a Wednesday press conference with Israeli and US reporters in Jerusalem, John Bolton said Putin had said he would like Iran to withdraw from Syria, “but he said, ‘I can’t do it myself.'” [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
