The US has no legal grounds to remain in Syria. This was stated by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

“They are there, contrary to the will of the legitimate government of Syria, without any additional legal grounds,” she said.

Zakharova stressed that in fact the US presence in Syria “is close to the concept of occupation.”

Earlier, the Washington Post, referring to official sources, wrote that Washington intends to maintain its presence in Syria even after the complete defeat of the Islamic State. The US authorities believe that a full withdrawal of troops will provide Syrian President Bashar Assad with “political survival”.
