The purported new development comes amid a number of reports this week of talks among Israel, the United States and Russian Federation over the security situation there.

'They came to Iraq with no legal basis, and look what happened to them.

Assad vowed to claw back areas of Syria held by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Kurdish militia. He also referred to the agreement reached between Russian Federation, the USA and Jordan on the de-escalation zone that would see "all non-Syrian forces.withdrawn from the area".

"We were close to have direct conflict between the Russian forces and the American forces", Assad said. We don't have any other options, with the Americans or without the Americans.

He added: "The Americans should leave, somehow they're going to leave".

In an interview with Russia Today, Russia's state-owned worldwide broadcaster, Assad said the United States should heed the lessons of Iraq and get out of Syria before it is forced to leave.

Mr Trump had insulted his counterpart in an 8 April tweet following a suspected chemical weapons attack in Douma. But Assad has beaten all expectations and now he's threatening to attack the Kurds in the northeastern sector of Syria where they are supported by American troops.

Several black coffee shop owners in Philadelphia are suggesting that black customers make a habit of seeking out their businesses. The entire session will last four hours, the Associated Press reported . "Workers will also view a short documentary film".

The comments followed Syrian President Bashar Assad's insistence that the U.S. should leave the Arab Republic.

Russian President Vladimir Putin also spoke by phone late Wednesday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"The most important fact regarding this issue, is that we do not have Iranian troops".

"We could not hide it, and we would not be ashamed to say that we have". "Like we invited the Russians, we could have invited the Iranians". Asked if he had a nickname for Trump similar to the "animal" comment, Assad replied: "This is not my language, so I can not use similar language". This is his language.

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

Russian Federation has been supporting Assad, Syrian leader since 2000, militarily in his seven year-long civil war against rebels attempting to overthrow him. The agreement envisages Iranian forces pulling out from the entire area and Syrian rebels there surrendering heavy weapons. He'd lost control of more than three-quarters of his own country and the wolves were seemingly at the door. Ironically, he can count on his old adversary Turkey to help him deal with the Kurdish problem. There has been no confirmation of such a deal, however, from Russia, Israel or Iran.

He also claimed that direct conflict between Russian military and US forces had been "close" in Syria, and that it had only been avoided thanks to Putin's leadership.
