Syria and Russia have urged the United States to start implementing its decision to pull out American troop forces from the Middle East state, in a joint statement which was issued by the Syrian and Russian general officers.

According to Sputnik news reports, the statement said, “We urge the United States, whose military units are illegally located in Syria, to leave the country.”

The statement added that Syria, in cooperation with Russia, will begin forming convoys in order to bring Rukban refugees back to their homelands, their permanent residence, on March 1.

The statement said, “Guided by the highest human principles, the Syrian government, in coordination with the Russian side, will form humanitarian convoys for the voluntary unimpeded return of Rukban residents to their permanent residence starting March 1, 2019.”

It added saying that the entry of the convoys into the “US-occupied zone around At Tanf for the evacuation of refugees from the Rukban camp will be carried out in coordination with the UN.”

Around 95 per cent of the Rukban refugees, according to the statement, wanted to leave the camp, but the US “prevents their exit, misleads the refugees by saying that it is impossible to leave the camp and disseminating rumours that they will face devastation, forced conscription and arrests on the territory controlled by the Syrian government.
