US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Tuesday that Russia has violated an agreement that it would not advance toward southern Syria since the area had already been designated as a safe zone.
"We had an agreement with the Russians that they would not move in the south. There was a de-escalation zone that the Russians had agreed to. They now have clearly violated that," Pompeo said this in an interview with Sky News in Arabic. He also added that the US government is interested in reaching a political agreement regrading Syria.
