Kurdish forces, which are supported by the USA, now control around a third of the country. having taken huge swathes of territory from Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil).

In his warning, Assad invoked the US experience in Iraq, where USA troops quickly faced a widespread insurgency.

President Donald Trump has said he is keen to pull the troops out as soon as possible, but the US military has persuaded him to allow them to remain at least until a last pocket of Islamic State fighters is vanquished along the Syrian-Iraqi border. "They have to learn this lesson".

Lavrov echoed comments he made earlier in the week when he said that only Syrian troops should be stationed in rebel-held Daraa province, a region adjacent to the Israeli border that has emerged as a flashpoint in a wider standoff between the Jewish state and Iran.

"They came to Iraq with no legal basis, and look what happened to them". Iraq is no exception.

Both Russia and Iran have played pivotal roles in helping reverse Assad's fortunes, and Faisal Mekdad, Syria's deputy foreign minister, last week reassured Tehran that a pullout was not up for discussion.

Syria's president is demanding the USA and its western allies to pull their troops out of the war-torn country. Medical aid organizations said the attack killed dozens of people.

The attack triggered U.S., French and British missile strikes against what they called chemical weapons targets, the first co-ordinated Western strikes against Assad's government of the war.

Assad reiterated the government's denial that it carried out the attack in the eastern Ghouta town of Douma, saying that the government did not have chemical weapons and it would not have been in its interest to carry out such a strike.

"This is not my language, so, I can not use similar language". This is his language.

"I think there is a very known principle, that what you say is what you are".

According to Israeli sources, Russian Federation has grown increasingly frustrated with Iran's presence in Syria and is anxious that fighting between Israel and Iran threatens its hard-fought victories.

Assad further said Israel has from the start of the crisis in Syria been in contact with the anti-Damascus militants.

Assad said the end of the war was getting closer with "every victory", but accused adversaries in the West and the region of trying to obstruct that and "hindering the political process".

"I can say that despite some disagreements, Israel is satisfied with Russia's stance", Koren said.

The meeting lasted more than an hour and a half and concerned security issues between the two countries and Israel's effort to "prevent Iran from establishing bases in Syria", the statement said. Trump has already said he hopes to pull U.S. troops out of Syria within a matter of months after the complete defeat of ISIS in Syria's eastern provinces.

He said that Syria's air defences were now much stronger than before thanks to Russian Federation.
