After defeat of terrorists in southern Syria, the situation in the Golan Heights “must be brought in full compliance with the 1974 disengagement of forces agreement between Syria and Israel,” Russian President Vladimir Putin told a news conference after a face-to-face talks with US President Donald Trump on July 16.
He said that Russia is interested in peace in the area and Israel’s security and this move will allow to return security to the region and a ceasefire between Damascus and Tel Aviv.
“Mister President [Trump] has paid specific attention to this today. I want to confirm that Russia is interested in such development of the events and will adhere exactly to such position,” Putin said.
Currently, the Syrian Army is carrying out a wide-scale military operation against militants aiming to restore control of the entire area east of the Golan Heights and to reach the contact line with Israel. Considering the speed of the advance, this may become reality soon.
