Lavrov says demands for Iran pullout from Syria ‘absolutely unrealistic’

TEHRAN, Jul. 04 (MNA) – Russian diplomatic chief Lavrov said, on Wednesday, demands for Iran’s complete withdrawal from Syria are unrealistic and Iran should be allowed to play its regional role, Ynetnews reported.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov asserted that it is an unrealistic call to ask for Iran’s complete pullout from Syria. The Russian diplomatic chief made the remark during a meeting with his Jordanian counterpart Ayman Safadi in Moscow on Wednesday.

He described Iran as a bold regional player and an important powerful country of the region helping the war on terrorism in Syria.  

Russia and Iran have provided crucial military support to Syrian legitimate government and the army of the war-torn country, helping them turn the tide in the war against terrorists financed by US and Saudi Arabia.

Also in the same meeting, Mr. Lavrov referred to the course of events in Syria and said “we primarily agreed to discuss today the progress in the Syrian settlement, with a special emphasis on the de-escalation zone in the southwest of Syria.”

“We note the continuation of useful contacts between our military and the military of Jordan and the United States, within the framework of the joint monitoring center for the southern Syrian de-escalation zone established in Amman,” highlighted the Russian top diplomat.
