MOSCOW, Dec 28 (Reuters) - Russia welcomes the return of Kurdish territories in Syria to the control of President Bashar al-Assad’s government, the Kremlin spokesman said on Friday, after Damascus said its forces had entered the town of Manbij.

“This is a positive trend,” spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a conference call.
