Russia's Concern Troll

RIA Novosti:
It is too early to withdraw foreign troops from Iraq, Russia's foreign minister said at an international conference on Iraq in the Egyptian resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh Friday.

Sergei Lavrov said the main criterion in determining a withdrawal schedule should be Iraqi law enforcement's real preparedness to maintain law and order.

The Russian minister said the presence of coalition troops in Iraq "is one of the stabilizing factors, preventing the country from spiraling into the chaos of a full-scale internal war."
Thanks for your help.
