MOSCOW: Foreign and defence ministers from Russia and Turkey will discuss in Moscow the United States’ decision to withdraw troops from Syria, Russian news agency RIA reported on Saturday, citing Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu.

In an abrupt policy shift, Trump has said that Washington would withdraw roughly 2,000 US troops in Syria, upending a pillar of American policy in the Middle East and alarming US allies.
