About the prospects for the US pullout from Syria Lavrov recalled a saying by US author Mark Twain: ”Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world. I know because I’ve done it thousands of times.” Lavrov said that making fine promises was an American tradition: ”First it was announced the pullout will follow in two months, then it was stated that it should be expected not in two months but in six, and then it was hinted the pullout might be delayed much longer.”.
