YEREVAN, October 21 /TASS/. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's visit to Moscow and his talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin were in the spotlight of Armenian media on Wednesday.
"Assad’s visit to Moscow is evident of trust in Russia. It inspires hope for Syrian settlement," the ARMENPRESS news agency said.
"Russian warplanes have been bombing terrorist positions in Syria since September 30. That inspires hopes of the Syrian people, including the Armenian population in Syria, that the conflict will be settled and that peace and stability will be established in the country," ARMENPRESS went on to say.
"Even the refugees who fled their homes because of the military hostilities hope that the Russian air support will help destroying terrorists or will force them to leave the occupied lands so that the refugees could return home," the news agency said in its commentary.
"Russia’s stance and steps are strengthening al-Assad’s power in Syria. The Russian actions are inspiring hopes that Syria’s desire to put an end to its longstanding suffering and the cruel war is not just a dream," ARMENPRESS went on to say.
"Today’s war-torn, semi-ruined and mutilated Syria inspired by its allies is ready to fight for the preservation of its statehood and restoration of its former security and stability. The air strikes have made it possible for Russia to achieve quick success and show the United States how it should fight terrorists," the Armenian news agency stressed.
