MOSCOW, December 22. /TASS/. The Russian military presence in Syria is in line with international law, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, commenting on the Pentagon’s statement about the activities of the Russian Aerospace Force in the country.

"I can only point to the obvious truth and say that the Russian Aerospace Force is present in Syria in full accordance with international law," he said. "As for the US troops, they don’t have any legal reasons to be in Syria," Peskov added and suggested that reporters should reach the Russian Defense Ministry for further comments.

On Thursday, the Pentagon commented on the recent encounter between US F-22s and Russian Su-25 jets, saying that Russia was intentionally violating an agreement aimed at preventing accidents in the Syrian skies.

Russia’s Defense Ministry said earlier that on December 14, a Russian Su-35S fighter chased away a US F-22 plane, which was firing flares to impede two Russian Su-25 aircraft in the Syrian skies.
