GENEVA, March 16. /TASS/. Moscow and Damascus will continue to coordinate their efforts in the fight against terrorism in Syria, Bashar Jaafari, Syria’s chief negotiator at the Geneva talks and Syrian ambassador to the UN said on Wednesday after talks with UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura.
"It was a coordinated, joint political decision [on partial withdrawal of Russian forces] taken by both Moscow and Damascus," he said. "Our friends and allies — Russians, had come to Syria by our mutual decision and they will leave Syria or pull out their troops or redeploy their forces fully or partially, on the basis of coordinated decisions," the official said.
