Putin says Russia, Turkey, Iran see US pullout from Syria as ‘positive step’


(Worthy News) - Moscow, Ankara and Tehran see the planned US withdrawal from Syria as a positive step, Russian President Vladimir Putin said after a summit with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts on Thursday.

Putin, Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Iran’s Hassan Rouhani agreed the US pullout from northeastern Syria “would be a positive step that would help stabilize the situation in this region, where ultimately the legitimate government should re-establish control,” the Russian leader told a joint press conference.

The leaders of the three countries — who have positioned themselves as the key foreign players in Syria’s long-running war — were meeting for talks on how to work more closely together in resolving the conflict. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]

  1. I agree. We need to stop inserting ourselves inside every conflict anywhere else in the world. We have said we don't want to be the world's policeman. Let's live by that claim.
