Pres. Rouhani returns home from Russia

MNA – President Hassan Rouhani who visited Sochi, Russia to attend the fourth trilateral Iran-Russia-Turkey summit on Syria returned home early Friday morning.

Prior to the summit, President Rouhani held separate meetings with Turkish and Russian counterparts to discuss regional and international as well as bilateral issues.

Putin, Erdogan, and Rouhani agreed during the talks that a US pullout from northeastern Syria “would be a positive step that would help stabilize the situation in this region, where ultimately the legitimate government should reestablish control.
