LONDON, March 15. /TASS/. Russia’s announced major pullout of its Aerospace Forces from Syria is likely to play a positive role on the situation in the war-torn country if it adds up to the power transition in Damascus, British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said.
"Russian move could be positive - if part of real commitment to Syrian-led political transition & continuation of cessation of hostilities," Hammond wrote in his Twitter account.
The Kremlin press service announced late on Monday that following a telephone conversation between Russian President Putin and his Syrian counterpart Bashar Assad the two leaders agreed on pullout of the major part of the Russian Aerospace Forces from the war-torn country since "the Russian Armed Forces fulfilled the fundamental missions, which had been assigned to them."
Russia, however, will keep an air flights control center in Syria to monitor the observation of the ceasefire regime, the Kremlin said.
