MOSCOW, November 19. /TASS/. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Thursday he is planning to visit Syria and meet with President Bashar al-Assad.

"I think the visit will take place in the next months or weeks," Rogozin said.

He said a meeting of the Russian-Syrian intergovernmental commission would be held during the visit.

"I will go [to Syria] to discuss economy, first of all," Rozogin said. "This is a vital issue for Syria. They cannot go into offensive actions when their economy is in ruins."

Syrian army’s victory should be the key goal of Russia's operation

According to the official, Russian air and space forces in Syria hit only terrorist targets with no damage to civilian facilities.

"We strike only terrorist centers without any damage to civilian facilities," Rogozin said adding that Russia was using only high-precision weapons in Syria.

He said the Syrian army’s victory should be the key goal of the operation.

"The air support cannot resolve all problems, it can just weaken the resistance of terrorists to let the Syrian troops clean their territory from the terrorist threat," Rogozin said.

Moscow is giving much more aid to Damascus than "all the assistance western politicians were rattling about," he said, adding that Russia is striving for ‘the soonest success of the Syrian army."
