Lavrov sure US is not quitting Syria – but awaits Trump-Macron talks

French President Emmanuel Macron begins talks with President Donald Trump at the White House Tuesday, at the start of his state visit to Washington with his wife. Syria and the Iranian nuclear deal, as well as trade, are high on their agenda. Macron opposes the US military exit from Syria, presses for the preservation of the Iranian nuclear deal, and rails against tariffs on French exports.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov contended Tuesday, during his Beijing visit, that the US has no plan to pull its troops out of Syria, whatever has been said. But he advised waiting for the final word to come out of French-US contacts, a reference to the Trump-Macron talks at the White House.

    The longer the Ruskies stay in Syria, the more the drain on their already teetering economy.
