Russian Foreign Ministry comments on prospects of Iran's presence in Syria

If Syrian sovereignty and territorial unity is re-established then there will be no reason for Iran to be there, Russian President’s envoy to the Middle East Mikhail Bogdanov said in an interview with Bloomberg.

The senior Russian diplomat downplayed concerns about the growing role of Iran in Syria, saying that Iranian-backed forces would leave the country once the government re-establishes full control of all territory.

In addition, Bogdanov added that Russia is ready to mediate between Damascus and the Syrian Kurds in the northeast who have been under U.S. protection, to allow for the return of Syrian government troops and the eventual withdrawal of Turkish forces.
