MOSCOW: Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview that Moscow does not plan to maintain its military presence in Syria indefinitely.

In an interview Medvedev was asked if Russia would help its ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, in his stated aim of restoring his control over all of Syria.

“We have no plans for such a never-ending presence in Syria. We are there pursuing an entirely limited, concrete objective,” Medvedev said, according to a transcript of the interview released by the government.
