President of Russia Vladimir Putin has supported the decision of U.S. President Trump to withdraw the American troops from Syria during his press conference, as Newsweek reported.
"Donald is right, and I agree with him," Putin said.
Despite the fact that Trump made such decision, the critics, including the Republicans, state that it promotes the goals of Russians in the Middle East. However, Trump believes that America has already achieved all possible goals in Syria.
Later, Trump confirmed his decision with the post on Twitter.
“Getting out of Syria was no surprise. I’ve been campaigning on it for years, and six months ago, when I very publicly wanted to do it, I agreed to stay longer. Russia, Iran, Syria and others are the local enemy of ISIS. We were doing there work. Time to come home and rebuild.”
Despite the support, Putin also expressed the hesitation in Trump’s words, mentioning that the U.S. had been in Afghanistan for 17 years, and "they always say they’re withdrawing."
As we reported president of U.S. Donald Trump proclaimed the victory over the terroristic organization “Islamic State” in Syria.
Earlier, the US State Department announced that Russia and Syria had falsely accused Syrian militants of shelling Aleppo on November 24.
On November 24, the Syrian city of Aleppo was fired with shells filled with poisonous gas; 107 civilians were injured. Official Syrian authorities, loyal to President Bashar al-Assad, reported that Aleppo was shelled from 120-millimeter mortars.
