Iran Calls On US To Immediately Withdraw From Syria

Iran has repeatedly strongly refuted claims of its troops’ presence in Syria, however, admitted sending military advisors to help the Syrian government fight terrorists. Tehran has also been acting as one of the guarantors of the ceasefire regime in the Arab Republic and as a broker in peace talks.

Ali Akbar Velayati, the top aide of Iranian Supreme Leader, has demanded the US military pullout from Syria as it is “there without the permission” of Damascus.

When asked to comment on the demand voiced earlier in the day by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson concerning Tehran’s withdrawal from the country, Velayati was quoted as saying by ISNA, “Iran’s military presence in Syria was based on invitation of the Syrian government.”
