"The pull out of all foreign forces, which are in Syria illegally and de facto occupying large parts of the country, will only help to facilitate the stabilization that we have been witnessing in Syria specially in the last year," Nebenzia said at a roundtable discussion on Syria at the United Nations.
On Wednesday, US President Donald Trump announced his decision to withdraw all US military troops from Syria, saying the move was motivated by the fact that the Daesh terror group has been defeated in Syria.
Nebenzia also stressed during a UN roundtable discussion on the group’s activities in Syria that "the White Helmets deserve to be on the United Nations’ designated terrorist list."
In November, the Russian Defense Ministry said that the White Helmets were preparing new provocations with chemical weapons in Syria offering local residents to participate in filming staged attacks in exchange for food.
Daesh (also known as ISIS/ISIL/IS) is a terrorist group banned in Russia.
