Russia’s support in the fight against terrorism in Syria has led to tightening the grip on terrorist groups and contributed to preventing the spread of terrorism into other countries, a Foreign Ministry source said on Sunday.
Friday marked a year since Russia entered the Syrian war in support of Bashar al-Assad’s government on September 30, 2015.
The source clarified that the Russian contribution has led to curbing the Islamic State theft of Syrian oil and has deprived the radical group of one of their main sources of funding.
The Russian military efforts come to embody the standing strategic relations between the two friendly countries, the source added.
The source concluded that Syria renews its gratitude to Russia for its constant military, political and economic support in order to eradicate terrorism and bolster steadfastness as well as to restore stability and security to the country.
