Iran calls for US' rapid withdrawal from Syria

New Delhi, Jan 9, IRNA - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Wednesday called for rapid withdrawal of the US forces from Syria.

It will be better for the Syrian people, if the Americans leave the country as soon as possible, Zarif told reporters on the sidelines of the Raisina Dialogue, held in New Delhi.

Iranian foreign minister is in India to attend Raisina Dialogue which is a multilateral conference held annually in New Delhi.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Zarif said that the Americans did not provide security for anybody.

Three weeks ago, US President Donald Trump announced to the world that he had decided to withdraw the American troops stationed in northern Syria. On the contrary, this week, US National Security Advisor John Bolton announced during his visit to the Palestinian occupied lands that the United States would pull out of Syria only after the Daesh (ISIS) was completely uprooted, and mainly after protection of the Kurdish forces in Syria was assured.
