OTTAWA, March 15. /TASS/. The authorities in Canada will be closely following the developments concerning Russia’s announced pullout of the major part of its Aerospace Forces from Syria, Canadian Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson Diana Khaddaj told TASS.
According to the Canadian diplomat, Ottawa will be following closely Moscow’s announced intentions to launch the withdrawal of its military, deployed in Syria as part of Russia’s fight against international terrorism.
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 assigned to them."
Russia, however, will keep an air flights control center in Syria to monitor the observation of the ceasefire regime.
Defense Minister of Russia Sergey Shoigu ordered to launch the military pullout from Syria on March 15.
Russia has been carrying out an anti-terror operation in Syria since September 30, 2015. The Russian air task force has been operating against militants in Syria. Some strikes against terrorists were delivered by the Russian Navy.
