Russia to Lease Syria's Tartus Port For Economic Purposes - Russian Vice PM

In 2017, Russia and Syria signed an agreement on locating a point of material and technical provision for the Russian Navy in Tartus for 49 years.
The naval port of Tartus in Syria will be given for lease to Russia for 49 years during the forthcoming week; it will be used for economic and logistical purposes, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov told journalists on Saturday after meeting with Syria’s President Bashar Assad.

 
Borisov, who is also a co-chairman of the Russian-Syrian intergovernmental commission, is currently on his working visit to Syria.
