The US withdrawal from Syria will help resolve the situation in the region, First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Dmitry Novikov told RIA Novosti.
Earlier, the White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said that the United States began withdrawing troops from Syria, but a victory over the terrorist group IG * does not mean the end of the existence of the coalition.
“In this direction, serious success has been achieved related to the Russian presence in Syria. The US role was fundamentally different … If the US fulfills its obligations related to the withdrawal of its units from there, this will contribute to the cause of the Syrian settlement,” Novikov said.
The parliamentarian stressed that the US presence in the SAR did not contribute to pacification and the real fight against terrorism.
