The U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson demanded from Iran to withdraw all its forces from Syria with a view to reducing regional tension, RIA Novosti reported.
Tillerson made the remarks at a joint press conference held with Jordanian counterpart Ayman Safadi in Amman.
Washington’s top diplomat also voiced concern over recent escalations between Iran and Israel in Syria, urging Tehran to withdraw all its forces from the latter.
"We are quite concerned about the recent incident involving Israel and Iranian assets inside of Syria. And I think this again illustrates why Iran's presence in Syria is only destabilizing to the region,” Tillerson said.
