Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Wednesday warned of the risks of Washington sending mixed signals on an American withdrawal from northern Syria.

The Kurds are "extremely alarmed" by US statements, he said, and fear that confusion could "ignite the whole region".

"This must be avoided at all costs," Lavrov said following talks in Kazakhstan's capital Nur-Sultan.
