Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stressed on Friday that Russia pays great attention to cooperation with Syria in the fight against terrorism at this stage.




“We will continue providing all the necessary assistance to Syria in its war against terrorism in parallel with launching a political process,” said Lavrov during a meeting with his Syrian counterpart Walid al-Moallem in Moscow.


Al-Moallem, for his part, thanked the Russian leadership under President Vladimir Putin for its sincere efforts in supporting Syria against terrorism, pointing out that the Syrian army, backed by the Russian air force, is making advances on all fronts.
