Iranian Presence In Syria Is Legitimate, Russia Says Amid Israeli Concerns


Haaretz– Israeli defense figures are set to meet U.S. counterparts today; Jerusalem troubled by seeming unwillingness of superpowers to expel Iranian troops from southern Syria.

Russia has not promised to ensure a withdrawal of pro-Iranian forces from Syria, RIA news agency quoted Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov as saying on Tuesday.
The presence of Iran in Syria is legitimate, Lavrov was quoted as saying by another agency, Interfax.

Meanwhile, a delegation of the U.S. National Security Council has arrived in Israel for a meeting with Israeli counterparts on Tuesday that will focus on Iran and the situation in southern Syria.

Representatives of other security branches will also participate in the discussions, which are slated to be held days after Russia, the U.S. and Jordan signed an agreement on a cease-fire in southern Syria.
