According to Asharq Al-Awsat, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Jaber Ansari has rejected US Secretary of State John Kerry’s remarks on a large withdrawal of Iranian Revolutionary Guards forces from Syria claiming Iranian forces remain at the behest of the Assad regime in Damascus.

Ansari added that “no power can intervene” in the military and diplomatic ties between Tehran and the remains of the Assad government. He also added that Iranian Revolutionary Guards operate in Iraq with approval and legal request of the Iraqi government in Baghdad.
