Iran reveals terms of its withdrawals from Syria

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said Saturday that Iran might decrease its military presence in Syria and even leave altogether after the situation in Syria normalizes and the fight against terrorism there brings significant results.

Qassemi pointed out that Tehran will maintain its presence in Syria as long as Damascus wants it to. The diplomat noted that fighting terrorism was one of the Iranian forces' tasks in Syria, apart from granting support to the Syrian government.

In July, Iranian Supreme Leader's Top Adviser for International Affairs Ali Akbar Velayati said Tehran would be present in Syria and Iraq at the request of these countries' legitimate governments and would not leave despite the threats voiced by the US.
