MOSCOW, October 22. /TASS/. The Russian president’s Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov is confident a breakup of Syria may have catastrophic consequences for that region.
"Syria’s territory should be liberated," he said in an interview with the Vesti V Subbotu weekly television program on Saturday. "And everything should be done to hinder the breakup of that country into any parts, which may have most catastrophic consequences for the region."
In a comment on the Russian base in Syria’s Tartus, he said "it is not a goal, but means to achieve the goal."
"And the goal, which the president voiced in the very beginning, is assistance to the Syrian legitimate authorities in fighting terrorism, in fighting IS and other terrorist organizations," he said.
