Putin Welcomes Trump’s Decision of Withdrawing Forces from Syria

Russian President Vladimir Putin has welcomed the US President Donald Trump’s decision of withdrawing the US forces from Syria, considering it “the right decision.”

Trump said in a surprising statement on Wednesday that he would pull all his country’s troops out of Syria as he believes that Washington’s mission in Syria has been accomplished and the war against the Islamic State (IS) has ended.

“Donald’s right, and I agree with him,” the Russian leader was quoted by The New York Times.

He, in the meantime, doubted that Washington would actually withdraw its troops from Syria as the western country made a similar decision in Afghanistan in 2014, but there are still US troops present in the country. Source
