Putin Says Russia Has No Plans to Pull Its Military Out of Syria

President Vladimir Putin says Russia has no plans to pull its military out of Syria, but isn't building permanent facilities there, Al Jazeera reports.

The troops "will stay there for as long as it is to Russia's advantage, and to fulfill our international responsibilities," Putin said.

But, he added, "we are not building long-term installations there and, if necessary, can withdraw our servicemen quite quickly without any material losses."

Putin called the Syrian war "an unique experience" for Russian troops.
