Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has launded the US intention to withdraw troops from Syria, saying that "if it is true, this is good news".
At the same time, the Iranian president added: "We can never trust the words and promises of Americans".
In December, US President Donald Trump declared victory over the Daesh* terrorist group and said he would withdraw some 2,000 US troops currently deployed in Syria. Washington, though, said that it would not reveal a timeline for withdrawing its troops, and pledged that the US-led international coalition's fight against terrorism would continue.
According to US officials, the pull-out of the US troops, will take from 60 to 100 days.
*Daesh (also known as ISIS/ISIL/IS) is a terrorist group banned in Russia
