The withdrawal of British, US, Turkish and French troops, which are in Syria illegally, guarantees the end of war crimes in the country, Syrian Deputy Defense Minister Mahmoud al-Shawa said at the Moscow Conference on International Security on Wednesday, ONA reports citing TASS.

"We demand that the illegal presence of foreign troops of the US, France, Britain and Turkey on our soil should be stopped and the international alliance disbanded. That guarantees the end of war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by them," he stressed.

Al-Shawa stressed that the political process is "the Syrian people’s property." "All political issues should be tackled by Syrians without outside interference," he stressed.
