The Syrian President, Bashar al Assad, stressed the importance of the Russian military bases on the territory of his country, noting that their importance lies in ensuring security and stability in Syria and fighting global terrorism.
The Syrian President’s statements came during an exclusive interview with the Russian “Zevzda” channel, in which he said:
“In Syria today, we are dealing with international terrorism, and Russia is helping us to achieve security and stability, but after the elimination of terrorism there is another role that Russia will play at the international level by urging the international community and different countries to implement international law”.
He pointed out that “there is an imbalance between the powers in the current system of international relations and Russia must restore the lost balance”.
Assad noted that the Russian military presence plays a large and important role, not only in Syria, but in the whole world.
Assad said in this regard: “The Russian presence is to ensure security and make the global order more just and balanced, of course, if the West abandons its aggressive policy of using its military power to create problems in the world, Russia may not need such a policy as well, but the world today needs the balance you mentioned”.
