Tuesday, 10 August 2021 (YJC)_ The Moscow government has challenged some claims about the legitimacy of the US military presence in Syria, citing Security Council Resolution 2254.

Russia: US troops have no permit to stay in SyriaThe Russian embassy in Washington says US troops have no legal permission to stay in Syria.

This statement is in response to a recent tweet from Wayne Maruto, the US spokesman for the so-called anti-ISIS coalition, who claimed that US forces were present in northeastern Syria in accordance with international law and UN Security Council Resolution 2254 of December 2015.

"Your interpretation of this resolution is ridiculous," the Russian embassy in Washington told the American side. Please read the document carefully.

At the same time as the resolution was adopted, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told a news conference with then-US Secretary of State John Kerry that "the Syrian people alone can decide the fate and future of their country." "Everyone agrees with this principle, but everyone should avoid their own interpretations of how to implement their personal principles and opinions."
