Russian Envoy: Deal Reached to Remove Iranian Forces From Golan

•, Jason Ditz

Russian Ambassador Vasily Nebenzya announced to journalists Friday that an agreement was reached that would involve removing all Iranian forces from the Syria-Israel border in the Golan Heights.

Israel has been pushing Russia on this issue for a while, and had conditioned not interfering in Syria's offensive against rebels in southern Syria on getting Iran, along with Shi'ite militias, out of the border region.

In return, Russia is expecting Israel to provide them with assistance in restoring diplomatic ties with the United States. It's not clear how Israel intends to do that, but Russian officials are said to be confident that Israel has the ability to help Russia in that direction.
