BEIRUT, March 15. /TASS/. Moscow "stays true to its commitments on political and military coordination between the leadership of Russia and Syria," Syrian Information Minister Omran Ahed al-Zoubi said on Tuesday.
Commenting on the agreement between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Syrian counterpart Bashar Assad to start withdrawal of Russian forces from Syria, al-Zoubi said that "this decision was fully coordinated between Moscow and Damascus." He added that "Russian friends stay true to their commitments on continuing the fight against terrorism." "Both Russia and Syria clearly observe the resolutions of the international community on fighting against terrorism groups," the minister noted.
He confirmed that "military operations against terrorists in Syria will continue with all seriousness and determination."
The Kremlin press service released a statement on Monday evening that the Russian and Syrian presidents, Vladimir Putin and Bashar Assad, agreed to start withdrawing the main part of the Russian aviation task force from Syria because the Russian Aerospace Forces had fulfilled the fundamental tasks assigned to them. Russia will leave an air flight control center in the Syrian territory that will monitor the observation of the Syrian ceasefire. Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu has ordered starting the Russian troops’ withdrawal as of March 15.
