MESOP : KERRY GOES FOR MOSCOW TO LEARN MORE & GET SOME ADVICE / WATCH PICS “PATRIOTIC DEMONSTRATION”
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will visit Moscow next week to discuss the Syrian peace process. Kerry’s trip follows Russia’s announced withdrawal of much of its intervention force in Syria. Russia has returned approximately half of the fighter jets it had deployed to Syria to Russia, according to estimates by Reuters, though the U.S. military has noted that there is no evidence yet of Russian troop withdrawals. Returning pilots and maintenance crews were met at a Russian airfield for a patriotic demonstration.
