Tehran (ISNA) – Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs called the presence of US forces in Syria as illegitimate, stressing that Washington's decision to end the occupation of Syrian territories and withdraw its troops from the region should have implemented much earlier.

"Iran hopes that the US' decision leads to creation of peace and stability in Syria and the region. The Islamic Republic has followed the worrying news about the probable arrival of Turkish military troops into Syrian territories and believed that such measure if it happens, will not only fail to remove Turkey's security concerns but rather cause a huge financial and humane loss, therefore, Iran opposes any kind of possible military operation in that case," Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement on Tuesday.

The Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to contact with Turkish and Syrian officials to remove the concerns peacefully, stressing that respecting the territorial integrity and national sovereignty of Syria, as well as Adana Agreement, are appropriate grounds for talks, according to the statement.
