Iran ready to leave Syria at Da­m­as­cus’ say-so

Philippine Daily Inquirer - - WORLD -

MOSCOW— A top aide to Ira­nian Supreme Leader Ay­a­tol­lah Ali Khamenei said on Fri­day that Iran would with­draw its “mil­i­tary ad­vis­ers” from Syria and Iraq only if their gov­ern­ments wanted it to. “Iran and Rus­sia’s pres­ence in Syria will con­tinue to pro­tect the coun­try against ter­ror­ist groups and Amer­ica’s ag­gres­sion… We will im­me­di­ately leave if Iraqi and Syrian gov­ern­ments want it, not be­cause of Is­rael and Amer­ica’s pres­sure,” said Ali Ak­bar Ve­lay­ati in Moscow.
