Russia on Wednesday called on the US to end its occupation of al-Tanf region in Syria near borders with Jordan.
“Moscow demands Washington to end its occupation of al-Tanf in Syria,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Sergey Vershinin, said in a press statement, affirming that this territory is Syrian and the US presence in it is illegitimate.
Sputnik quoted Vershinin;
“US service members are stationed illegally in this area…blocking the road that connects Iraq and Syria”.
