Russian and U.S. defense ministers discuss Syria by phone

Defense ministers of Russia and the United States have spoken about the situation in Syria over the phone, Russia’s Interfax news agency reported on Thursday citing a statement by the Russian military, APA reports quoting Reuters.

The ministers discussed Syria days after U.S. President Donald Trump ordered U.S. forces away from the conflict area, allowing Russia-backed Syrian forces to deploy deep inside territory held by U.S.-backed Kurdish forces south of the Turkish frontier.
